JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The ribbon was cut and now Jonesboro residents can check out a new grocery store.

Several Jonesboro city leaders came out to the official grand opening of ALDI Wednesday morning. ALDI is a low-price grocery store.

This is the first store in Jonesboro and it's expected to bring 25 jobs to Jonesboro.

"This is a unique type grocery store where you bag your own groceries and pay for your carts," Jonesboro Operations Officer L.M. Duncan said. "Which saves for the overhead, which will save customers money."

The ALDI grocery store is located at 2610 Caraway Road.
