Aldi Supermarkets hosted a career fair today in Owensboro. Dozens of people applied to be store managers and sales associates.
Aldi is opening its first Owensboro location just off KY 54. Company officials say they plan to hire 15 people.
"Just as a company nationwide," said Taylor Brummett, "we're looking to do a lot of expansion not only just here. But in other parts of the U.S., this is a part of our initiative."
The company already has several stores in Evansville. Aldi officials say the new store could open as soon as mid-October.
