Aldi's hosts grand opening for Paragould location

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Aldi’s hosted a grand opening ceremony for their new grocery store in Paragould Tuesday morning.

The opening was an attraction in the city as shoppers lined the parking lot waiting for their chance to get inside the store.

Jean Jones of Walcott said her driver had a hard time finding parking.

“She had to pull around I don't know how many times,” Jones said. “She finally found a parking space down by the Dixie Cafe.”

The first 100 shoppers received gift certificates of varying amounts to be used on a future purchase. Shoppers also had the chance to enter a sweepstakes to win a year of produce from the grocery store.

The store is located at 2810 West Kingshighway and specializes in discount groceries.
