Aldi Opens in Middleburg
The long-awaited opening has come for the new Middleburg area Aldi, the German owned grocery store chain that is a cousin to Trade Joes. At 17k SF, its about one-third the size of a Publix but still carries some 1,300 items, that some claim are up to 50% cheaper than Wal-Mart. This is Aldi’s first store in Clay County and its second in the JAX region; it now has 72 stores in FL. Another store is expected to open off Southside Blvd later this year.
