No word on new grocer’s location yet
by CHRIS ROGERS
ALDI is coming to Winona. The discount grocer announced it plans to open its first store in Winona later this year.
“We are excited to confirm that we are planning to open a new ALDI store in Winona, Minn., but do not have further details at this time,” ALDI Faribault Division Vice President Matt Lilla wrote in a statement.
ALDI did not confirm where in Winona the new store would be located.
ALDI brands itself as a way to save money on high-quality groceries, and its stores have minimal staffing. Customers often bag their own groceries, and some stores use a deposit system to incentivize customers to return their own carts. Currently, the company’s nearest stores are in Red Wing, Minn.; Rochester, Minn.; and La Crosse, Wis.
