retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Australian reports that discount supermarket Aldi plans to build as many as 50 new stores in the Adelaide region there, an expansion from its current footprint of close to 300 stores.

The cost of the Aldi invasion is expected to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and the retailer has not yet said when it expects the first one to open, nor where it will build a distribution center to service all the Adelaide region stores.
