It's never a good thing when a community loses a grocery store, especially one that offers quality items and low prices. However, that's precisely what happened this week as the discount food store chain, Aldi, announced abruptly that it would be closing its store located at 2877 Lamar Avenue in Memphis.

The shuttered Aldi location had served the Bethel Grove and Orange Mound communities for the last fifteen years. However, the company said it decided to close the store based on multiple factors, including crime, damage done to the property, and underperformance.

Unfortunately, the grocery store had experienced repeated burglaries and property damage in recent months, leading the company to close its doors.

Customers who frequented this store generally had good things to say about it. For example, one customer who left a review on Google commented that they had "good quality food and fruits." Others mentioned that Aldi's prices were "affordable" and felt they were getting a good value for their money.

Although the Google listing for this location still says it is open, local reporters who visited the site today claimed it was already closed.

According to reports, employees who worked at this store location were offered positions at other Aldi stores in the area. Aldi customers who were used to shopping at this store may want to check out alternative locations in the Parkway Village, Whitehaven, or Berclair communities around Memphis.

For non-Aldi grocery store alternatives, shoppers can visit Gary's Grocery Market or the Save a Lot located nearby.
