(KAIT) - A discount grocer wants to expand to over 1,000 more stores in the next five years. And with that expansion plan comes thousands more in new jobs.

ALDI released their plan to grow more as a company in a Monday news release.

According to the release, the company will use $1.6 billion to remodel 1,300 stores by 2020. ALDI will invest $3.4 billion to expand to 2,500 stores nationwide by the end of 2022.
