Inside Aldi's newest Chicago-area store

Aldi's new location is on the northwest side of Chicago in North Riverside, Illinois. Aldi now has 35 Chicago-area stores.

With multiple store openings, the discount grocer is also working on a new online shopping portal that would drive shoppers through its own channels, rather than solely through third-party platforms.

The digital expansion, which includes new filters for dairy-free, diabetes-friendly and low-sugar products, is part of ShopRite’s Well Everyday health and wellness program.

With shoppers searching for deeper discounts amidst higher food prices, CHEF’STORE’s new opening widens the wholesale grocery industry landscape even further.

Through a partnership with digital marketplace Flashfood, the program will now include 34 of the grocer's Massachusetts stores and 21 of its Rhode Island locations.

Peapod Digital Labs, the e-commerce engine for Ahold, will host four quarterly virtual events to bring new products to its shelves. The first will be held in April.

The Asian grocer is also planning another location in New York.

The grocery wholesaler’s shows offer retailers the opportunity to sample new products, build relationships and experience the latest retail industry innovations. UNFI is scheduled to host four of them this year.

More than half of consumers say they'd rather shop in-store because they do not trust someone else picking out their grocery items, according to new data from Kroger-backed data firm 84.51°.

Tom Charley takes the reins as the new chair of the National Grocers Association's Government Relations Committee.

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.
