ALDI debuts remodeled store in Hurricane
HURRICANE — ALDI plans to celebrate the remodel of its Hurricane store on Monday, Nov. 19, according to a news release.
The store, located at 103 Liberty Square, is part of a $1.9 billion initiative to remodel and expand more than 1,300 ALDI stores nationwide by the end of 2020. Locally, ALDI is investing nearly $8 million to update five stores in the Tri-State area by the end of 2019.
To celebrate the Hurricane store remodel, ALDI will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 19, followed by its popular Golden Ticket giveaway, offering gift cards to the first 100 customers and eco-friendly bag distribution. Shoppers can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a year’s supply of ALDI produce.
The ALDI product expansion is the next phase of the company’s national growth and remodel plan. As part of the product expansion, ALDI is increasing its fresh food selection by 40 percent with many organic, convenient and easy-to-prepare options.
ALDI stores also feature open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials. The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
“Remodeling and expanding our stores gives us more room for our refreshed product selection,” said Sarah Brown, Springfield division vice president for ALDI. “We know our customers want more fresh and convenient options, and by renovating our stores, we are able to provide new products as well as more of their favorites.”
Compared to last year, 20 percent of the ALDI product selection is new.
ALDI carries a streamlined selection of exclusive products and national brands. The company has earned more than 300 product awards and recognitions for its exclusive brands since 2017.
As part of the company’s expansion plans, ALDI is adding 25,000 new jobs in stores, warehouses and offices nationwide by the end of 2022. ALDI was named to the Forbes list of “America’s Best Large Employers” four years in a row and is proud to offer staff market-leading salaries and benefits. The retailer was also recognized as a 2018 National Top Workplace by Energage for the second consecutive year.
Currently, ALDI is in the midst of a national rollout with online grocery delivery service Instacart.
