Aldi has broken ground on a Braselton store location on Spout Springs Rd. expected to open toward the end of the year.
The supermarket chain held a ceremonial groundbreaking Monday morning at the site at 7505 Spout Springs Rd. at the intersection of Thompson Mill Rd. in the Duncan Corners community.
This store will be the first Aldi location in Braselton, third in Hall County and 77th in the state. The 12,000-square-foot brick store will generate 15-20 jobs, according to the company.
Speakers at the groundbreaking included Braselton Town Councilman Jim Joedecke, in whose district the Aldi will be constructed.
“On behalf of the mayor and town council … we are just super excited that Aldi is coming to be part of our community here in Braselton,” Joedecke said.
