ALDI (Finally) Comes to Madison County

ALDI, the no-frills German grocer that for years has avoided Madison County while building stores in Chattanooga, Birmingham, and even Decatur, will be building its first store here early next year on US 72 West in Madison, next to Outback Steakhouse. Some of you may recall that this is very close to where ALDI had planned to open a store a few years ago, but for whatever reason never did.

For those who wish that ALDI built a store closer to their own neighborhood, don't worry. A retailer like ALDI could easily open at least three stores here in the next few years.

This would be REALLY exciting news if they were building one over here in Hampton Cove! 72W gets enough attention. ;)

72E gets left out too

Wish it was on the north side of Huntsville.

Great, no trips to Decatur...

What about one in the Haysland Square/Hamilton Square shopping center area. Plenty of room and the residents around here are wanting another grocery store badly.

That's good news! All of us Zierdt road people are waiting for something down here as well.
