An Illinois-based grocer is planning another Upstate location.

According to Colliers International — South Carolina, Frank Hammond and Nick Reinhardt represented the landowners in the sale of the land located at the intersection of North Pleasantburg Drive and Worley Road in the Cherrydale retail submarket.

Grocery store chain Aldi confirmed it has purchased the three acres on North Pleasantburg Drive with the intent of building a seventh area store at the location.

Thom Behtz, Aldi Jefferson Division vice president, said the company has opened six grocery stores in the Upstate over the last 18 years. The chain has three in Greenville — White Horse Road, Chalmers Road and Woodruff Road — and stores in Taylors, Greer and Easley.

In February, the grocer unveiled plans to spend $1.6 billion to remodel 1,300 stores and increase the total number of grocery locations to nearly 2,000 by the end of 2018.

Behtz said he did not have any other Upstate expansion plans presently but “we’re always looking for opportunities to bring great quality groceries and everyday low prices to the Greenville-area.”
