aldi logoBattavia, Ill.-based Aldi Inc. is mulling locations for a base for its West Coast expansion.

According to an article in the Moreno Valley Press-Enterprise, Aldi officials are considering building a 935,000-square-foot distribution in the Southern California town just east of Riverside.

The article says Aldi’s Southern California division could open stores by 2015.

The company opened the first 10 of the 30 stores it plans for the Houston area in April and May, and has opened nearly 40 stores total in 2013, according to its website. Aldi opens 50 to 80 stores per year, without merger or acquisition.

The retailer operates more than 1,200 stores in 38 states focused on deep discounts and private label goods, offering 1,400 of the most commonly purchased items in a supermarket.
