Aldi, a German-based discount grocery chain moving aggressively in U.S. markets with plans for over 900 stores, has signed a lease to open a 19,000 square foot store in the Tower Square shopping center, 155 Hillwood Avenue in downtown Falls Church, according to a report by Rebecca Cooper in Tuesday’s Washington Business Journal. The store will fill a space currently occupied by the Halalco market.
The move follows the opening of an Aldi store in Alexandria earlier this year.
