ALDI, a discount supermarket chain, will open a store in Pflugerville later this year.

The store will be located at 1415 FM 685, Pflugerville. Construction is set to begin this spring with the store slated to open in October or November, according to Tara Bennett, Real Estate Assistant with ALDI.

ALDI stores sell groceries, including meats, healthy foods and produce. Many stores also include wines, beers and home goods.

More than 90 percent of the products sold in the stores are ALDI exclusive brands, similar to Trader Joe's, allowing shoppers to buy products at lower prices. ALDI has nearly 1,600 stores in 35 states. The first store opened in Germany in 1961 and the first U.S. store opened in Iowa in 1976.

The Pflugerville ALDI will be the first in the Austin area, with the closest stores in Temple, Killeen and College Station.

The company has more than 24,000 employees and plans to have 2,000 stores by 2018, according to its corporate website.
