Aldi to Create its Biggest Store in Hungary Inside a Deserted Budapest Shopping Mall
German retail company Aldi’s biggest store in Hungary will open in a deserted mall in the heart of Budapest. The new Aldi store will be on Kondorosi utca in Budapest’s District XI.

The new owner planned to build a new housing complex there, but the local government banned that, as the Budai Walzer gated community is on the other side of Kondorosi utca, so the mayor and the representatives were convinced another housing complex would make the area too crowded.

That is when Aldi decided to create Hungary’s biggest store there.

Aldi has confirmed the opening of the new store. The company noted that it would be the biggest store in Hungary concerning the sales space.

Furthermore, the building will allow other shops and stores to settle there like before.
