“ALDI stores look and feel different, and that’s by design. Our shopping experience was created to make life easier for our customers,” said Tom Cindel, Group Director of Operations and Logistics, Moreno Valley division for ALDI. “Our exclusive and streamlined selection gives you the food you need at the prices you want, including hot new trends and healthy-living options.”
The Rialto store’s convenient layout focuses on what people love most: fresh food, produce, dairy and baked goods. ALDI stores also feature open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials. The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
The ALDI Experience
ALDI stores stand out from the rest. Each location is designed to save shoppers both time and money, so people can live more life. Some of the advantages ALDI offers include:
- A streamlined selection that removes the guesswork from shopping. Stores don’t carry two dozen types of peanut butter. The focus is carrying the best options at the best prices.
- ALDI makes the hottest food trends affordable and accessible and carries a wide variety of award-winning products.
- To help shoppers save even more money, ALDI has found innovative ways to simplify operations, including .25-cent grocery cart rental and asking customers to bag their own groceries.
- ALDI sells random items on purpose. A fleet of ALDI Finds, nearly 100 new and unique products each week, are available when our customers need them most, like rain boots in the spring or Dutch ovens near Thanksgiving.
This innovative approach has made ALDI one of the fastest-growing retailers in the U.S. As part of the company’s aggressive expansion plans, ALDI is adding 25,000 new jobs in stores, warehouses and offices nationwide by 2022. ALDI was named to the Forbes list of “America’s Best Large Employers” three years in a row and is proud to offer staff market-leading salaries and benefits.
