Grocery store chain Aldi purchases land on O’Neal Lane

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - WAFB has confirmed an 11.1 acre piece of land on O’Neal Lane in Baton Rouge has been sold to the discount grocery chain Aldi.

A real estate agent tells WAFB’s Liz Koh the company purchased the property Wednesday, May 28 for $1.35 million from All American Realty Corp of Baton Rouge.

The property, located at 2327 O’Neal Lane, was last used for a Hardee’s fast-food restaurant.

Aldi bills itself as offering a more efficient shopping experience than other grocery store chains. The company’s stores offer only fast-moving grocery items stocked on just four or five aisles.

Aldi has also purchased properties for stores in Lafayette and Slidell.
