ALDI, the fast growing grocery store with a loyal following, unveiled its completed regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Alabama this week. The new center will serve 100 stores across the Gulf Coast and create 200 jobs.
“At a time when inflation is putting pressure on American wallets, we believe our mission to save people money on the food and products they need is more important than ever,” said Heather Moore, ALDI divisional vice president for the Loxley region. “We are thrilled to see so much customer love for the 20 stores we’ve opened in the Gulf Coast area in the last year alone.”
The 564,000-square-foot Loxley facility is equipped to service 100 stores across Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle.
It is ALDI’s 26th regional headquarters and distribution center and the sixth in the southern United States. Loxley will support the grocer’s rapid expansion in the region. Presently, the grocer operates 30 stores in the Gulf Coast, having opened 20 stores in the area last year alone. It plans to add another 13 stores in 2023.
The Loxley facility was designed with sustainability top-of-mind and features some of the most innovative and efficient design components included in any ALDI facility to date. The eco-friendly components are:
- Roof-mounted solar panels
- LED lighting,
- Environmentally friendly refrigeration system and metal panel insulation.
“We are incredibly proud ALDI chose to lay down its roots in our Alabama community,” said Richard Teal, Mayor of Loxley.
