If wine, specialty chocolates and delicious cheese are on your holiday menu, you’re in luck.

Stephenville’s newest grocery store – ALDI – is set to open by the end of the year.

SEDA’s Ashleigh Feuerbacher told Beneath the Surface News that construction will be complete in November.

“Then it will be turned over for stocking,” she said.

Need a job? ALDI is hiring.

ALDI is located next to Panda Express in the Christy Plaza.

The “no frills” chain sells household essentials and groceries at lower prices than other national retailers.

According to its website, ALDI keeps costs low by renting shopping carts for a quarter (you get it back when you return the cart) and they don’t give out shopping bags.

The retailer is often recognized for its tasty, but inexpensive snacks, spices, breads and canned goods.

ALDI stays true to its European heritage by carrying specialty chocolates like Choceur and its German roasted ground coffee that is supposedly to-die for.

It also carries a wide selection of beer and wine and reportedly has an amazing cheese selection.

I can hardly wait.

So there you have it, Stephenville.

ALDI is on its way, and it’s time to get excited.

Drop me a line and let me know what you think.
