Long range investors take note: contrary to the current state of U.S. retail, German grocery chains Aldi and rival Lidl will be adding more than 4,000 stores in the USA over the next five years.
With Aldi further entrenching itself in the US, grocers large and small will have a tougher time squeezing out profit margins, especially as food prices continue to deflate.
"Aldi is gunning for prices 21 percent below competitors in the US", Ladd told The Post, saying his big-dollar spending estimate is what will be required for Walmart to "defend market share" in groceries.
Aldi is taking aim at Whole Foods.Business Insider/Hayley PetersonAldi says it has a plan to become the third largest grocery chain by in the United States by store count within the next four years.

Another German grocer, Lidl, last week said it planned to expand into the U.S.by opening 10 stores in June.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc is testing lower prices in 11 U.S. states.
The American growth of the privately-owned German giants could put more pressure on conventional retailers to lower prices further. Hart added that Aldi's prices were also up to 50 percent lower than traditional grocery chains, a move that appeared to follow rival Lidl's announcement on prices. The new competition in the low-margin industry arrives during a deflationary spiral that has seen food prices drop for 17 straight months, the longest such streak in more than 60 years.
Aldi is now hoping to repeat this success across the Atlantic, adding 400 more stores in America by the end of next year. Customers not only bag their own groceries, they stack shopping carts in order to get back a 25-cent deposit they pay to use them. With the additional new stores, Aldi will have 2,500 US units by 2022.
On Thursday, the rivalry will intensify between the two grocers when Lidl opens its first nine stores across three states. The chain will also remodel hundreds of its current USA locations.
Aldi, whose US division was founded by German parent company Aldi Sud in 1976, has continued to evolve its selection of products to include more fresh foods, gluten-free options and award-winning products throughout the store. In 1962, the name became Aldi, shortened from Albrecht Discount.
