Aldi expands into Forsyth County

Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. — Beginning Sept. 4, Aldi will be inviting grocery shoppers to their newest location and the chain’s first Cumming store, 1760 Buford Highway.

As part of the grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony, the store will offer product samples and onsite sweepstakes for a chance to win store gift certificates.

“We are pleased to bring a store to Cumming to help customers get high-quality products at everyday low prices,” said Thom Behtz, Jefferson division vice president for Aldi. “As important as price is, the only way to attract and keep shoppers is to have quality products.”

Behtz said he challenges shoppers to switch from national brands to Aldi’s exclusive brands.

Aldi, which has its United States headquarters in Batavia, Illinois, was recently ranked by independent research firm Market Force as “top low-price grocery store chain in America.”

To celebrate the new Cumming store, the public is invited to attend and sample exclusive brand products, tour the store and shop.

The Aldi stores use a shopping cart rental system, where shoppers insert a quarter to release a cart and receive the quarter back upon the cart’s return. Other store practices include smaller stores, open carton displays and shoppers are asked to bring their own shopping bags.

Aldi does not accept credit cards, but accepts debit, cash and EBT.

Aldi has nearly 1,300 stores located in 32 states. Last year, Aldi opened a Johns Creek location and there are stores also located in Milton and Roswell.

The Cumming location will open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
