New store...Aldi? Lidl?




Does anyone know about the new store that is owned by a german company that took over where Kelly's (?) was?

It is supposed to be Lidl. However, Kelly's has not been demolished yet. The word on the street is that they never can be complete by this tourist season and therefore not in a rush. But the big rumor is that the store is on hold since Lidl's US earings are well below projections. Lidl's expansion in the US is rumored to be reduced. You figure it.

Both LIDL and Aldi are German chains. Bid requests have been flying in for the past two years for their stores and distribution centers build out. Many of their projects went dark after Amazon partnered with Whole Foods. We were told it was market jitters!

Pickle posted the latest news. It is not 100% Lidl will come here at all now and not anytime soon if they do come.

Lidl also bought property here in Erie and so far, nothing. The sale was announced in 2016, the finalization hit the news in 2017, but I haven't seen any construction while I'm down that way.

Thanks for all the replies. guess we'll just have to wait and see.
We have an Aldi's near where we live and go there often. Prices and selection are good. Thumbs up


RE: New store...Aldi? Lidl?




We have a Lidl close by. Mostly all their own brands of things not bad prices , A great fresh bread selection and bakery.. I wasn't impressed. other then the bakery
Aldi I like for some things But you selection is limited. You bag your own grocery's but the savings are significant.

Our Aldi just recently upped their produce game significantly. Now I buy almost everything there. Before you ran the risk of bugs / rotted produce if you bought it there but I'm guessing they finally got that sorted out because everything I've bought recently has been great. I still won't get their breads (it's pretty stale upon purchases) and they don't have any of my vegetarian stuff that I get at Walmart but I'd say a good 70% of our stuff comes from them now.

I went in Lidl for the first time last week and was not impressed at all. It reminds me of a Dollar General, Family Dollar, etc. I abandoned my cart and left before I picked up anything. I'll stick to Kroger.

Aldi’s recently teamed up with Kohl’s to place groceries in their stores. Lidl is being squeezed by online shopping and second guessing all of their US stores.
