RARITAN TWP., NJ – A new Aldi supermarket is under construction in the Flemington Mall on Route 202 here.

The store is being built in the former Sports Authority location. Previous to that, it had been a Borders book store.

Aldi opened its first store in Germany in 1961, and the company claims to be the “first discounter in the world,” according to its website. The company opened its first US store in 1976; it is now headquartered in Illinois and claims 1,600 stores in 35 states. It expects to have 2,000 stores by next year.

Aldi Center Valley division vice president Bob Grammer said in an email that the Flemington store is expected to open in late fall.

Aldi will join an increasingly competitive market for groceries in Hunterdon. As previously reported, Lidl is pursuing plans to open a store just north of the Flemington traffic circle on Route 31. Discussion about the Flemington location involves the now-closed Toy Kingdom store and may include moving the current Wendy’s restaurant slightly north, local sources say.

Aldi says it offers a “no-frills grocery shopping” and a “quick-and-easy shopping experience with only four to five aisles and all the essentials.” Most of its merchandise is privately-labelled Aldi-brand product, according to the website.

Help-wanted information on the company website says the store is looking for fulltime associates that will be paid $12.40 per hour and shift managers that would be paid $16.65 per hour.
