Oct. 20--German-born discounter Aldi, which made its debut last year in California, is planning to open 14 more local stores including four in Orange County.
New locations in Santa Ana, La Habra, Laguna Woods and Westminster are expected to open in November and December, Aldi officials told the Register. Next week (Oct. 26), Aldi plans to open its 41st Southern California market in Temecula.
Aldi, short for Albrecht Discount, sell knockoffs of top-selling brands such as Heineken beer and breakfast foods from General Mills and Kellogg's. When the stores opened out West last year, thousands of curious bargain hunters made a grab for everything from paper goods to cheese to frozen pizzas.
The German discounter, with U.S. headquarters in Illinois, guarantees the quality of its low-price store brands or your money back. Aldi, which sells 1,500 to 1,750 items per store, maintains it can save shoppers up to 50 percent on their grocery bills.
Aldi's Orange County locations are in Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Buena Park and Anaheim.
The Temecula store opens Oct. 26 at 7:45 a.m. at 29655 Rancho California Road.
Stores opening in November: Santa Ana (2830 S. Bristol St.), Lancaster, Bakersfield, Pico Rivera, Alhambra.
Stores opening in December: Westminster (Goldenwest/Westminster), Laguna Woods, La Habra (1001 East Imperial Hwy.), Glendora, Oxnard, Escondido, Chula Vista, Monrovia.
