The other Admin, Jon is supposed to be coming up to Connecticut this coming spring or summer to meet up with me. Mayhem will sure to follow us. LOL. Gonna visit the still vacant AMES HQ in Rocky Hill, the last vacant AMES in Connecticut located in Seymour, and going to hit up one of the 3 remaining K-MARTS in Connecticut. As a side trip we're probably going to hit Northern Mass and meet up with Chris the founder of the AMES Fan Club. ~ Brammy. New Email brammy82@mail.com

That looks like a logo straight out of the 80's.

Aldi in Southington, CT opened this morning. The owner of the TOPS IGA Marketplace on the other end of Southington is not happy about it.

Aldi Supermarket opens this morning on Queen Street in Southington
October 5, 2017 03:32PM
By Jesse Buchanan, Record-Journal staff

SOUTHINGTON — More than 100 customers, some of whom lined up at 5 a.m., poured through the Aldi Supermarket doors after the Queen Street store’s grand opening Thursday.

The grocery store is the first of three businesses under construction on a property owned by local developer John Senese. Crowds waiting for the doors to open at 9 a.m. watched construction crews make progress on a Chick-fil-A building closer to Queen Street that’s slated to open in January. The steel frame for a Chipotle Mexican Grill is also up and the restaurant could open in the first quarter of next year.

More stores and restaurants are planned for a property also owned by Senese just south on Queen Street.

Thomas Carle, a Meriden resident, was first in line Thursday morning after he showed up at 5 a.m. He and others who were first in line received gift cards.

After an inaugural shopping trip for eggs, milk, bread and a few other items, Carle said the prices had won him over.

“I will be shopping at Aldi’s,” he said. “This is half what it would have cost me (at other stores).”

Kate Sirignano, Greater Southington Chamber of Commerce chairwoman, thanked Aldi for its investment in Southington. She said many residents had been eagerly anticipating the store.

“It’s such a wonderful addition to the town of Southington,” she said. “I know everybody has been waiting for Aldi for quite some time.”

She’s an Aldi shopper and is pleased with the prices, particularly on organic items that she says run much more in other stores.

Shoppers said the closest Aldi is in Bristol and were glad to have one closer. Several said Thursday that Aldi’s prices compared favorably to other supermarkets in town.

John Salerno, owner of Tops Marketplace in Plantsville, questioned whether the town needed another grocery store and listed five in town, in addition to Walmart and Target, which both carry food.

“We have so much here,” he said. “We don’t need it.”

Salerno said he stocks Tops with local food items such as honey, syrup and pasta made in town.

“You won’t see those products in any of those chains,” he said. “We’re a local business supporting other small local businesses.”

Nicole Shannon, Aldi district manager, said the company is always trying to add more products to its stores and that the Southington store will have new items and a strong selection of organic food.

ALDI Sud operates the little ALDI stores in our country, while ALDI Nord operates the Trader Joe's supermarkets.

ALDI has stores in Germany with two distinct logos, for north and south.

ALDI both founded by Theo and Karl Albrecht, they split the company in two after after a dispute about whether or not they should sell cigarettes.

ALDI is short for Albrecht Diskont.

The Aldi by me in the Transitown Plaza at Main and Transit in Clarence has just remodeled (think this was a Brand Names at one point), changing the outside of the store to look separate from the rest of the stores.

Such a weird plaza. Half the stores are obscured by the hulking TJ Maxx (Former Hens and Kelly, then LL Berger) building, and the rest are ultra niche stores (Custom window blinds? Ski shop? Chinese clothing and knick-knacks?).
