New York City’s big grocery store chain Aldi has decided to add a few more stores in the Big Island’s northwest section.
The chain announced Tuesday that it will open its first two locations in Lakewood and East New York.
The new locations will open in March.
“We are excited to welcome Aldi to the region, and we are committed to creating a more diverse, welcoming environment for all New Yorkers,” Aldi Chief Executive Richard Saff said in a statement.
“I look forward to seeing our customers at the Aldi store.”
The chain’s first two stores will be located in East New NY and Lakewood, both in the East Village, in the north end of the borough.
The stores are the second Aldi grocery stores in Manhattan and will open about three months after the chain’s current two stores opened in Brooklyn.
Aldi also opened its first Manhattan location in February, but the chain has not yet opened any stores in Queens.
