Discount grocer Aldi will open its new DC store in Haymarket, Va. On December 9.

The 6701 Lea Berry Way store is part of Aldi’s aggressive expansion into the United States this year, with 100 new stores opening in 2021.

Most of this growth has occurred in Arizona, California, Florida, and the Northeast.

Aldi currently has approximately 20 stores in the DC area, throughout suburbs of Maryland and Northern Virginia, with a location in northeast DC near RFK Stadium. Others are planned for North Bethesda and Capitol Heights.

Earlier this year, Aldi signed a lease to replace a former Shoppers food warehouse at White Flint Plaza.

Aldi has also expanded its online grocery ordering channels and added curbside pickup at hundreds more stores this year. Grocery delivery via Instacart is available in almost all of its stores.

Aldi has set a target of 2,500 stores in the United States over the next two years, which would make it the third-largest grocery seller in the United States, behind Kroger and Walmart.
