Joliet - ALDI will welcome shoppers back to its renovated Joliet store when it reopens Thursday, Sept. 19. The store, at 2601 W. Jefferson St., 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 $180 million to update more than 130 stores in Chicago and the Chicagoland area by the end of 2020.
To celebrate the Joliet store reopening, ALDI will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 8:25 a.m., followed by its popular Golden Ticket giveaway offering gift cards to the first 100 customers. Shoppers can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a year's supply of ALDI produce.
The updated Joliet ALDI store layout features expansive refrigeration space to accommodate the fresh, healthy and convenient products people want most. ALDI recently expanded its product offerings, making 20% of its total selection new. This expansion is part of the company's aggressive national growth and remodel plan, and it includes a 40% increase in its fresh food selection, with many organic, convenient and easy-to-prepare options. ALDI stores also feature open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally friendly building materials. The Joliet store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
"We listened when we heard ALDI customers wanted more fresh and convenient options, and our remodeled stores allow us to offer them exactly what they're looking for," said Heather Moore, Dwight division vice president for ALDI. "Expanding our fresh product selection is just one of the ways we've improved the grocery shopping experience at ALDI and we're excited to introduce this to our shoppers in Joliet."
