Attention shoppers, Aldi is now open in Savoy!

Friday afternoon the low-cost no-frills grocery store aisles were packed with shoppers. This will be the third Aldi location in the east central area adding to the ones already open in Champaign and Urbana.

Shoppers who live in the area say they're excited that the grocery giant is now a little closer to home.

"They always have the best prices and we love a good deal,” Savoy resident Anna Schrader said. “We love to save money and we live in Savoy so we've been far away from Aldi's. The only Aldi's that's been around is the one in Champaign."

"A lot of people like to shop at Aldi,” Douglas County resident Shirley Vanhoose said. “You can see it's crowded; we couldn’t find a parking space at first."

Managers say it took about a year to open the Savoy store. It's located right off Route 45 by the Sonic Drive-In restaurant.
