11/26/19 – It’s been a while since our last update about ALDI coming to Georgetown. That’s because not much has changed.
We can still see them on the Developer’s Site Map; it’s been updated a few times and ALDI keeps hanging in there.
We have heard repeatedly that ALDI and LIDL don’t announce their plans for an area until they are ready to open. It’s about competition knowing their plans.
The proposed location is in Wolf Crossing, not too far from the HEB on University and IH-35. There’s a construction trailer at the location now. It is along University right next the the Power Yard. The whole area seems to be in phase two, that’s where Gold’s Gym is slated to come in too.
Here are some images of the site proposed for ALDI. Tap any image for a larger view and slide show.
We don’t have any updates for you about the LIDI at this time. It’s on one of the city’s planning maps, but that map hasn’t been updated recently. We promise to keep you posted about both LIDL and ALDI as soon as we know more.
. . . .
3/3/19 – It’s looking more official all the time. We have several references to the Georgetown ALDI, we even have a location map now from the developer that says ALDI on it!
Here are a few more sources that mention ALDI coming. Please keep in mind that when contacted about a Georgetown store Aldi says they won’t confirm anything until they announce their grand opening.
Many thanks to a reader for these resources:
We thought we might do some investigation into what ALDI Grocery Stores are like.
Our close neighbor, Killeen, has an ALDI; we were there last week and took a bunch of pictures of their really new looking store.

Here’s a link to ALDI’s website. We’ll keep you posted.
