Aldi is Expanding Reach with 400 New Stores

BATAVIA, Ill., August 16, 2023 – Aldi buys Winn-Dixie and Harveys. In a strategic move to bolster its presence in the Southeast, ALDI has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket.

This acquisition is part of a broader divestiture of Southeastern Grocers and will add approximately 400 stores to ALDI’s network, enhancing its ability to offer top-notch products at unbeatable prices.

A Union of Trusted Brands as Aldi Buys Winn-Dixie and Harveys

“Like ALDI, Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket have rich histories and a strong customer base in the Southeast. We’re excited to serve them in the coming years,” expressed Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI.

“The time was ripe to capitalize on our growth and help Southeast residents save on groceries. This transaction aligns with our long-term growth strategy across the U.S., including our plan to add 120 new stores nationwide this year, reaching over 2,400 stores by year-end.”

Despite the economic downturn causing many retailers to close stores, ALDI is aggressively pursuing expansion, solidifying its position as one of the nation’s fastest-growing grocers.

The acquisition will encompass approximately 400 Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket locations across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

“ALDI will operate Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket stores with the same level of care and focus on quality and service. Together, we’ll help customers save time and money when they need it the most and give employees rewarding careers they can feel proud of.”

Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI

A Shared Vision for Quality and Value

Anthony Hucker, President and CEO, Southeastern Grocers, praised the merger, stating, “ALDI shares our vision for exceptional quality, service, and value. This unique opportunity will transform our business to benefit our customers, associates, and neighbors throughout the Southeast.”

The deal unites three esteemed brands committed to delivering an extraordinary grocery experience and positively impacting their communities. ALDI, which first entered the Southeast in the mid-1990s, has since invested $2.5 billion in the region.

The company recently deepened its roots by opening its 26th regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Alabama, with plans to open 20 new ALDI locations by year-end.

Commitment to Quality and Community

“ALDI will operate Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket stores with the same dedication to quality and service, while evaluating which locations will convert to the ALDI format to better serve the neighborhoods,”

“For those stores we do not convert, we intend to continue operating them as Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket stores.”

Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI

Recognized as a Certified™ Great Place to Work® and one of Forbes’ America’s Best Large Employers, ALDI will extend its employee-focused culture and competitive wages to more markets in the Southeast.

Closing Timeframe

The transaction is anticipated to close in the first half of 2024, pending regulatory approval and customary closing conditions. Read Aldi’s press release and keep up to date with other announcements at Aldi’s Newsroom.
