Aldi’s urban opportunity

From a recent RetailWire discussion of Aldi moving into more upscale urban locations…looks like an opportunity to me:

Aldi has cleverly expanded “under the radar screen,” compared to its corporate cousin Trader Joe’s as well as larger-footprint retailers. Its ability to provide edited assortments of value-priced groceries has moved the brand well beyond its roots as a “budget” alternative to traditional grocers. If Aldi can find the sort of location that works for its free-standing stores, there is a world of opportunity in high-density urban locations.
