Well, again, I should have kept my big mouth shut:

SmartCo Foods to close all Colorado stores after just a few months

Quote:
SmartCo Foods opened in Colorado earlier this year, and now all five of its grocery stores in the state will close in December because of “disappointing sales,” according to the retailer.

A little-known fact about Aldi is that they pay their staff really well, at least in Europe. I'm told that new store managers in the UK start on $60K+, and I remember seeing a Help Wanted ad in a store in Germany where they were paying well over double minimum wage for checkout workers. (This was before they adopted barcodes; the checkout staff were expected to know the price of every item in the store. It's a no-frills place with a limited selection, but even so, that's a lot to remember.)
