Seems like a nice win, if the jobs go filled as promised (and pay more than $15/hr). Chinese based companies have a history of not fulfilling hiring promises.  I see the company is getting a 20 year property tax break along with $100 million in infrastructure work, hopefully some bean counter has done the math. Hate to give away the farm, just to get a free gallon of milk.

Is that store the same footprint as the old SuperOne?  If so, is that space larger than a typical Aldi?  I've only seen Aldi's the size of a Walgreens/CVS.

Went to Aldis today. Very "interesting" store. Not very large. Longer than wide. Doesn't feel like a typical grocery store. Feels like a large wide open Dollar General/small Cosco that focuses on food.

I don't think I'll find myself shopping there much.

Typically their staples,(eggs, bread, milk) are noticeably cheaper than your standard grocery store.  Smaller selection but you can find some good stuff there.

In other news, the Northern Plains Nitrogen plant, proposed in Grand Forks, will be connected to the Midwest Carbon Express pipeline, if built.  A pipeline would be built to connect the plant in GF to the Midwest Carbon Express pipeline near an ethonal plant in Casselton.

 https://www.agweek.com/business/7345272-Multi-state-carbon-pipeline-adds-Grand-Forks-ND-ammonia-plant-to-plans#:~:text=Northern Plains Nitrogen is developing,has still been seeking investors.

Related article from the GFH: Summit Carbon Solutions on Monday afternoon, Jan. 10, sent a press release saying it has formed a new partnership with Northern Plains Nitrogen, a company that has been in talks with Grand Forks developers for the better part of the last decade.

In 2013, the announcement of NPN’s potential arrival suggested as many as 135 regular workers could be employed at the plant, which would require well over 1,000 construction workers to build.

 https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/local/although-no-word-northern-plains-nitrogen-plant-is-imminent-in-grand-forks-press-release-sparks-discussion

A representative of Northern Plains Nitrogen says he believes construction on a proposed plant in Grand Forks could begin as early as this year, provided the necessary financing is secured first.

Larry Mackie, NPN's chief operating officer, told the Herald on Monday evening, Jan. 11, that as fundraising continues, the company has stayed on top of other planning and organizational aspects — including engineering — in the interim.

He said NPN is “absolutely” coming to Grand Forks and “this project will get funded.”

In its press release sent Monday, Summit Carbon Solutions noted that the company recently announced “significant milestones in development of its carbon storage facilities in North Dakota, having received state and local permits to collect 3D seismic data and begin drilling stratigraphic test wells, activities which are now underway.”
