You May Soon Be Able to Buy Aldi Groceries at Quad Cities Kohl’s Stores
This news is a shopper's dream.
Department store chain Kohl's has teamed up with everyone's favorite low-cost food retailer, Aldi, to test the sale of groceries at some of their stores.
"The key priority we have as a company is to drive traffic," Kevin Mansell, the chief executive of Kohl's said in a Thursday earnings call. "We're focused on traffic-driving retailers: Groceries, supermarket chains, they drive a lot of traffic. We're finally on a path where we're getting more [shoppers]."
According to the Chicago Tribune, Kohl's is trying out Aldi sales at 10 locations. Since both retailers are based in the midwest (Kohl's in Wisconsin and Aldi in the Chicago suburbs), it's not a far stretch to say that grocery sales could happen at QC Kohl's locations.
I would, personally, love the option to buy Aldi products while out shopping for clothes. That's one of the reasons I love Target so much-the convenience factor. I can pick up milk and lettuce, then try on shoes immediately afterward. I could see this Kohl's/Aldi partnership doing really well in the QCA if it happens.
