The Houston area’s already competitive grocery market is getting even more so. Discount grocer Aldi plans to open 30 stores in the next three years, the company said last week.
At least 10 are set to open in spring next year. No-frills Aldi stores carry produce, meats and other items at low prices.
“Aldi is probably the lowest-priced grocer in the country,” said David Livingston, a grocery analyst at Waukesha, Wis.-based DJL Research.
