ALDI Grocery is undergoing a renovation. The store started construction in the beginning of March but has been open during the first phase of the project until last Sunday.
ALDI is now closed, so the construction crews can complete the expansion. The store is scheduled to reopen in early May as part of ALDI’s $1.6 billion nationwide plan to enhance more than 1,300 U.S. stores by 2020.

The sales floor is expanding 1,100 sq. ft. to approximately 11,200 sq. ft., according to ALDI Salisbury Division Vice President, Krysta Cearley.
“The new look of ALDI delivers on customers’ desire for a modern and convenient shopping experience with a focus on fresh items, including more robust produce, dairy and bakery sections,” said Cearley. “Stores will also feature a modern design, open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials – such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.”
