Continuing to freshen up its face across the U.S., Aldi has announced that a new span of stores are set for its latest remodeling spree. The retailer will have 20 stores in the Detroit, MI, area renovated by 2019.
"It has been a pleasure to serve the Detroit community for 21 years, and we're pleased to invest more than $28 million in updating our Detroit-area stores to better serve our existing and new customers," said Ryan Fritsch, Division Vice President.
The chain plans to spend $28 million on the renovations, according to MLive. This announcement is part of a larger initiative that the company initiative that Aldi released earlier this year, planning to invest $1.6 billion in remodeling its stores.
These remodels will focus mainly on fresh, boosting dairy and bakery sections, in addition to produce. The new store designs will also house open ceilings and natural lighting. Additionally, the remodeled Aldis will also feature energy-saving materials like energy-saving refrigerators, LED lighting, and recycled materials.
Keeping a keen eye on remodels, Aldi has stated that this is a specific strategy undertaken as it moves towards a “modern and convenient shopping experience” for shoppers.
"We know there's only one way to attract and keep fans: continually providing the highest-quality products, while staying true to what our competitors can't match–everyday low prices," Fritsch said.
One of these redesigned locations is already set to reopen at 25851 Grand River Ave in Redford, MI. The store will host a ribbon-cutting at 8:25 a.m. on August 10 to mark the new era for the refreshed store.
