    MADISON, Tenn. – Sept. 23, 2015 – H.G. Hill Realty Company has signed a lease with ALDI for the company’s property located at 135 Gallatin Road, South in Madison.

    The new ALDI grocery store will occupy 18,539 square feet of a new building that will also contain an additional 6,500 square feet of retail. Demolition and construction will begin in the fourth quarter of this year.

Hill Food Store, most recently operated as a Reese’s Food Store before closing in 2014. “We are thrilled to have ALDI as our newest tenant in Madison,” said Jimmy Granbery, CEO, H.G.

Juliet division vice president for ALDI. “As important as price is, there’s only one way to attract and keep shoppers: You have to have quality products.

    About H.G. Hill Realty Company, LLC
    Since 1895, H.G. Hill Realty has built a legacy of service and stewardship in Middle Tennessee. In 1926, following the success of H.G. Hill Food Stores, Mr. H.G. Hill, Sr. incorporated H.G. Hill Realty Company into which he placed most of the property he had acquired over the years. Mr. H.G. Hill, Jr. took the helm of the Hill Companies in 1942 and continued the tradition of acquiring and developing property during his 51 years as President. It was during Mr. Hill, Jr.’s tenure that the concept of neighborhood shopping centers became popular, and H.G. Hill Realty Company began to develop a number of strip centers in Nashville suburbs, each of which was anchored by an H.G. Hill Food Store. In 1999, H.G. Hill Company sold the bulk of its food stores and focused its attention on the development of its vacant and underutilized properties, creating a dramatic increase in overall asset performance.
