Aldi buys site for Southern California headquarters/DC

New York -- Discount supermarket operator Aldi has acquired a 55-acre site in Moreno Valley, Calif., on which it will build its Southern California regional headquarters. The planned 800,000-sq.-ft. facility would serve as Aldi’s West Coast regional office and distribution center as it looks to expand into the Southern California market.

In December, Aldi announced plans to open 650 stores in the United States during the next five years.

“We are eager to bring the Aldi difference to new markets like Southern California,” president Jason Hart said in a December statement. “We're ramping up our expansion plans to meet growing demand.”

To date, Aldi has concentrated its expansion in the Midwest and on the East Coast.
