Aldi opened its newest Long Island grocery store this week.
The chain opened a new store Thursday at 1251 Deer Park Ave. in North Babylon.
Earlier this year, Aldi opened a store in Valley Stream. The North Babylon store now gives the German company eight locations on Long Island.
This summer, Aldi surpassed more than 2,000 stores across the country and announced plans for the next wave of coast-to-coast expansion, including opening about 70 new stores by the end of the year.
