HAGERSTOWN A grocery store chain new to Washington County is moving into a vacant department store building on Dual Highway. Aldi expects to open in part of the former Ames building at the end of August, Will Carpenter, the company's director of real estate, said Thursday. Aldi describes itself as a discount grocery chain that tries to keep prices low by eliminating extra amenities, such as bagging clerks and check cashing. It charges a small fee for paper or plastic shopping bags and encourages customers to reuse bags, the company's Web site says.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - It's not the kind of grocery store where you can walk in and ask, "Where's the beef?" The Golden Soybean, a vegetarian health food store that opened this month at 215 W. Main St., doesn't sell beef, pork or poultry, although customers can buy an ersatz version of hot dogs, burgers and chicken patties made from textured soy protein or wheat gluten. Some products in the store use a play on words. There's "beaf" and "jerquee" instead of beef and jerky.
