SAN JACINTO –The city of San Jacinto planning commission approved a proposal from Mark Development to construct a 19,056-square-foot building on San Jacinto Avenue at Commonwealth Avenue to develop an Aldi grocery store, Monday, Aug. 21.
The project consists of building the Aldi grocery store along with another 6,040-square-foot building for additional retail on the site. The project marks the second new retail development approval for San Jacinto in the past three months. A Starbucks drive-thru coffee shop to be built on San Jacinto Avenue in the Stater Bros. parking lot was the first.
Aldi has its own unique style when it comes to grocery shopping and has been recognized as one of the fastest growing retailers in the United States. Aldi brands claim to save shoppers up to 50 percent on the items that they buy the most, as compared with other national brands. More information about Aldi is available on the company’s website at www.aldi.us.
“The city is excited to welcome Aldi to San Jacinto and offer its low-priced, unique brand of shopping to the community,” City Manager Rob Johnson said. “With Starbucks and Aldi coming to town, San Jacinto is experiencing attention from a regional perspective. Our housing starts are going through the roof, which is a great economic indicator for our retail recruitment success.”
San Jacinto is also launching the #advanceSJ hashtag, which will be seen throughout its economic development materials. #advanceSJ, much like #GoSanJacinto, will help to spotlight amenities and bring attention to the improvements being made for the community by the city and its partners.
