BATAVIA – Discount grocer Aldi has been recognized as the nation’s low-price grocery leader for the fourth year in a row, according to a recent consumer survey conducted by Market Force Information Inc.

When asked to rank the top grocers offering low prices, consumers in the survey ranked Aldi ahead of competitors such as Costco, Walmart and Trader Joe’s, states a news release.

Consumers also named Aldi as one of their top three favorite grocery store chains in America. “It’s no surprise that Aldi continues to be recognized as the low-price grocery leader,” said Aldi President Jason Hart in a press release. “However, these latest survey findings prove that a growing number of consumers are choosing to shop at Aldi for more than just low prices."

Aldi announced in December that it intends to open 650 new stores across the country in the next five years. Aldi's U.S. headquarters are based in Batavia.
