Aldi to open April 12

SALISBURY — People watching the development of the new Aldi don’t have to wait much longer to shop at the discount grocer.
The store — Salisbury’s second Aldi — will host a grand opening April 12.
Located at the corner of Brenner Avenue and Jake Alexander Boulevard, the 18,761-square-foot store stands across the street from Harris Teeter and just down the road from Food Lion.
Aldi will become the only large grocer other than Food Lion to have more than one location in Salisbury. Food Lion was founded here.
Aldi is the first retail store in the new Westgate Commons shopping center. Aldi bought 2 acres from Childress Klein Properties, which owns the 15.4-acre tract of vacant land bound by Jake Alexander Boulevard, Brenner Avenue and Milford Hills Road.
“We feel that we can much better serve the Salisbury community with a second store on this side of town and have no plans to close our existing store on Faith Road,” Todd Bonnett, Aldi real estate director, told the Post last year.
The Salisbury Planning Board recently recommended approval of a 72-unit apartment complex behind the new Aldi. City Council must give its blessing for the campus-style housing development.
