Rendering of Aldi in PflugervilleAUSTIN – ​Aldi has set an opening date for its new store in Pflugerville—the discount grocer’s first location in the Austin area.

The store, at 1415 FM 685, will make its debut Nov. 2, 2017.

The typical Aldi is just 15,000 sf—about a quarter the size of its competitors.

About 90 percent of the items in stock at Aldi locations are store brands.

Aldi, which traces its roots back to Germany, is in the midst of a major U.S. expansion. 

It currently has 1,600 stores nationwide and expects that number to grow to 2,500 by 2022.

While the chain has a significant presence in the Dallas and Houston areas, it hasn’t been a player in the Austin area until now.
The closest stores currently in operation are in College Station, Killeen and Temple—all an hour or more away.

No other Central Texas Aldi locations have been announced so far, aside from the one in Pflugerville.
