It looks like ALDI is considering opening another Loudoun County location. Paperwork filed with the county shows the discount grocer is considering building a store at the nascent Evergreen Commerce Center, a small development going up at the juncture of Evergreen Mills Road and Loudoun County Parkway.
The new store would sit on the V-shaped piece of land where the two roads meet, to the south of the existing Sheetz gas station and CubeSmart self storage facility.
Other reported businesses that may go up here include a preschool and possibly a restaurant or two. This location technically has a Sterling address, but would primarily serve communities in and around Arcola, South Riding and Brambleton.
The Burn reached out to ALDI’s HQ for more details, but they’re staying mum. “At this time, we cannot confirm any details about ALDI potentially opening a new store in Sterling, Virginia,” said ALDI Frederick Division Vice President Jeff Baehr in a statement. “However, as part of our aggressive national expansion plan, ALDI is currently exploring expansion opportunities in multiple markets from coast to coast. We will keep you posted if we have news to share about new ALDI stores opening in Loudoun County, Virginia.”
ALDI already has a location on Route 7 in Sterling and another location in the Broadlands in Ashburn. The Burn has also reported that ALDI is looking at a spot in Leesburg near the Lowe’s Home Improvement store. See that report here. We should stress — deals like this aren’t always finalized and may not come to fruition. Major retailers pursue many locations, but due to a variety of factors, may decide not to proceed with some of them.
