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.”
