ALDI on Western Ave. Closing, Residents Upset

PEORIA - The only grocery store in Peoria's First District is closing.
PEORIA - The only grocery store in Peoria's First District is closing.
The ALDI on Western Avenue will close next month. It is the only grocery store in Peoria's south side.
ALDI says the store location on East Peoria's Main Street will also close. Jobs will transfer to other locations in the area, including a new location that will soon open in Levee District in East Peoria.  
But First District resident Ralph White says the closing really hurts the community.
“People have to go up the hill and travel. And a lot of people can't make it there. Just like a lot of people don't have cars. So that's just excess pressure, excess burden on people,” said White.
The locations on Western and on Main Street in East Peoria will close on January 23. The Levee District location will open the next day on January 24.
