Grocery Outlet opens new store in New Jersey

The fast-growing West Coast discounter's new market is located in Hazlet and employs 25 people.


Aldi leads the pack in January new store openings

Grocers kicked off 2023 in a big way. WGB reported on 29 grand openings during the month, up from 17 in December.

The fast-growing discount grocer will open its newest store in the Chicago area next Thursday, with another store planned to open later this year at Six Corners, a shopping district in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago's Northwest Side.

Despite filing a lawsuit against the company in November, the state said the discount retailer continues to charge more at the register than the prices listed on its shelves.

Located at 450 Commack Road, Lidl said it invested over $12 million for this location, which will create more than 50 new jobs.

The supermarket is the discount grocer's 6th in Louisiana and is located at 8855 Veteran's Blvd. in Metairie.

Walmart made 6,000 drone drops in 2022 at 36 markets in seven states, inching the retailer closer to its goal of “conducting drone deliveries at scale.”

The openings are part of the company’s nationwide growth plan, which includes approximately 150 new stores this year.

The discounter added Ariel dela Cruz as VP of store operations, Tim Jagneaux as VP of construction and Megan Kokoska as VP of digital engagement. The company plans to open more than 1,000 new stores next year.

The discounter on Thursday said it intends to open more than 1,000 new stores next year, as it increases its penetration of refrigerated and frozen foods.
