Apopka ALDI to be part of nationwide remodel project

Last month ALDI Unveiled  a $1.6 Billion Nationwide Store Remodel Plan.  Today the Apopka Development Review Committee got its first look at how the expansion of the Apopka ALDI store might look.

According to the Concept Plan filed with the City, 1,190 additional square feet would be added on the north side on the existing store.  This is the side facing SR 436.

On February 8, 2017, the company announced plans to remodel and expand more than 1,300 US stores by 2020.

According to the announcement, the new ALDI store look delivers on its customers’ desire for a modern and convenient shopping experience with a focus on fresh items, including more robust produce, dairy and bakery sections. In the last few years, ALDI has added a number of new product lines that have quickly become customer favorites, including the liveGfree brand of gluten-free foods, SimplyNature products featuring many organic items and a full line of premium baby items under the Little Journey brand.

Remodeled 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.

“With this significant investment in our stores, what we’re really doing is continuing to invest in ALDI customers,” said Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI. “We’re continuing to expand our fresh offerings, which means we need to provide more space for produce, meat, and bakery items. We’ve also made a number of
improvements to our products – such as removing added MSG, certified synthetic colors and partially hydrogenated oils from all of our ALDI exclusive brand foods. But one thing that hasn’t changed is that our customers still save money on the groceries they buy the most.”

    It seems to me that they would be better off just building more stores or taking over former grocery store locations. That is a bunch of stores to remodel and expand…..1300 stores.

      They already own the land and buildings on most of their stores…They will spend more time and money relocating every single store…

    Oh I didn’t mean relocate the stores, no, I meant keep the current Aldi stores as is, and build some new ones in different locations where grocery stores are needed, and to fill some of these vacant grocery store locations that are sitting empty. It is their money and they can do what they want, however. Like this Aldi up here on 436 in Apopka, it is not old at all, and they are going to expand it, when they could keep that as is, and keep that customer base, and open others to build more customer bases is all I am saying.

    When Aldi opened on 436 in Apopka, I went there and they didn’t take personal checks, or my credit cards. All they took was cash or debit cards. I don’t do debit cards. As far as cash, I don’t know exactly how much I need to bring until I see what all they have that I want. You have to put a quarter in the buggy, pay for your bags, and the worst is, you can’t find anyone to assist you if it is something you are needing because they are too busy and will tell you so. The good part is they do have some quality items that are tasty and low priced. Around the holidays they get so many different products from all over the world, fixed up for the holidays. I go in there quite often, but just for a few items, not my regular weekly buggy full. I go to Winn-Dixie at Errol for that. I am not sure if they now take checks or regular credit cards.

      They do take credit cards and you can bring your own bags or theirs are not expensive. I always hunt down someone if I need something but the store is generally not big enough for me to not find what I am looking for. I love this Aldi which is much better than the one on 434 and 436.
