Grocery chain Aldi plans to add 800 stores to its nationwide footprint by the end of 2028.

The $9 billion expansion will include openings and store conversions, according to a press release.

The news comes on the heels of its successful acquisition of Southeastern Grocers, Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket chains.

“Our growth is fueled by our customers, and they are asking for more Aldi stores in their neighborhoods nationwide,” Jason Hart, CEO, Aldi, said in the release. “With up to 40% savings on groceries, new customers are inspired to try us out, and existing customers keep coming back. While price is important, we earn their loyalty by stocking our shelves with only the best products and offering a quicker, easier, and more enjoyable shopping experience. With this commitment to add 800 stores in the next five years, we’ll be where our shoppers need us while positively impacting the communities we serve.”
