New York -- Aldi was recognized as the nation's low-price grocery leader for the fourth year in a row, according to a recent consumer survey conducted by Market Force Information. Aldi announced in December 2013 that it intends to open 650 new stores across the country during the next five years.
When asked to rank the top grocers offering low prices, the 6,200 consumers who participated in the study ranked Aldi first, followed by Costco and Walmart third.
In addition to remaining the low-price grocery leader, Aldi maintained a top five ranking in the categories of good private label brands, accurate pricing and tags and sustainable environment/green policies.
Aldi said it also earned top-five rankings in three new Market Force categories such as courteous staff, fast checkout and nutrition/health information.
