SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Discount grocery store chain ALDI is expanding to Sioux Falls.

ALDI Inc. has submitted plans to the city to open a location in a space being vacated by Big Lots, which is leaving the market.

ALDI is known for its focus on bulk purchasing and own-brand products.

The Argus Leader reports Aldi’s renovation plans in Sioux Falls include using about 23,000 square feet of the former Big Lots space, with about 5,000 square feet on the south end left to lease.

The estimated construction valuation for the renovations is $800,000.

The company has previously announced plans to open 650 new stores across the country, bringing its total number of U.S. stores to nearly 2,000 by the end of 2018.

ALDI’s website does not currently list any South Dakota locations.
