ALDI officials have now set a goal to open a grocery store in Corinth this summer in the Harper Square shopping center.
The planned opening schedule for the ALDI in Corinth has evolved as the project has moved forward.
ALDI, which describes itself as the “first discounter in the world,” has more than 1,600 stores in 35 states.
Last July, ALDI planned for the Corinth store to open in the fall of 2017, but details were still being finalized.
In December, ALDI’s goal was to open the Corinth location this spring.
On Tuesday, ALDI said the company plans to open the Corinth store this summer at 1801 S. Harper Road but said “we’re still finalizing the details.”
“We’ll be sure to reach out with more information surrounding timing and festivities for the grand opening, once available,” ALDI said in a statement to Corinth Today.
The Corinth store will employ about 15 to 20 people.
“ALDI takes a streamlined approach to staffing, creating cost-saving efficiencies that are passed onto our customers,” the statement said.
ALDI, based in Batavia, Ill., has nearly doubled in size over 10 years and plans to have nearly 2,000 stores in 2018.
