Business Notebook: Aldi hiring events set for today

While grocery retailer Aldi traces its roots to a small mining town in Germany, today the company is experiencing solid growth right here in the Sauk Valley. Because of that growth, there will be Aldi hiring events today at three regional stores.

Company representatives will be at the Sterling Aldi, 3409 E. Lincolnway; the Dixon Aldi, 1760 S. Galena Ave.; and the Clinton, Iowa, Aldi, at 1941 Lincoln Way from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. to assist job seekers.

The area stores are seeking prospects for a variety of positions, including store associate, shift manager and manager trainee. Starting hourly wages are $11.35 for store associates, $15.35 for shift managers, and $19.50 for manager trainees. Staff working at least 20 hours receive full benefits, including 401K.

Entrepreneurs vying for cash, support

DIXON – The Dixon Business Competition began in earnest with a kickoff event Wednesday.

Entrepreneurs have a shot at their share of $10,000 available to participating teams. Guidance and support will be given to competitors and the best of the best can earn cash and free commercial space to help make their business dreams come true.

Teams can be of any size. Entrepreneurs can be from existing businesses if it is a very young company with no more than $100,000 in annual revenue.

To enter: Register no later than May 30 at; submit a summary plan; pitch the idea.

Also by May 30, participants must submit three copies of their completed summary business plans to the Dixon Business Competition Committee. Finalists will be chosen June 16, based on the scores received from the three judges.

The pitch event and awards ceremony will be open to the public. It will be from 7 to 9 p.m. June 25 at Loveland Community House, 513 W. Second St., in Dixon.

For more information, email or call Josh Albrecht, executive director at Dixon Main Street, at 815-288-2308.
