Discount grocer ALDI, present in 32 states, is hoping to add as many as 80 stores per year, while expanding beyond low-income neighborhoods. "ALDI used to be viewed as a stock-up store where you'd buy a lot of canned goods that were mostly brands you didn't recognize," said Matt Lilla, division vice president. "It's changed a lot. In the last 10 years, we've doubled our product range from 700 items to 1,400."
