ALDI intends to remodel 54 Dallas-Fort Worth stores by 2019
ALDI announced Tuesday, Jan. 2, that renovations are beginning for its stores in Dallas-Fort Worth as part of the company’s nationwide plan to remodel and expand more than 1,300 of its U.S. stores by 2020, according to a company news release.
In February, 2017, ALDI announced a $1.6 billion investment in its stores across the country to complete the renovations, with more than $66 million dedicated to its DFW locations.
“Whether you’re a current ALDI customer or you haven’t stopped by your local ALDI lately, we invite you to come experience the new ALDI look and see how we’ve expanded our fresh offerings while staying true to our everyday low prices,” Scott Huska, ALDI’s Denton division vice president, said in the release. “Customers will recognize our easy-to-shop environment featuring a new modern design and more room for their favorite products.”
According to the release, ALDI intends to remodel 54 stores in the DFW metroplex by 2019. The new ALDI store look will feature a focus on fresh items — including more produce, dairy and bakery sections — a modern design, open ceilings, natural lighting and eco-friendly building materials — such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.
ALDI is in the middle of it’s growth plan, and by the end of 2018 aims to have nearly 2,000 ALDI stores serving 45 million customers each month nationwide, the release stated.
ALDI’s remodeling comes as a competitor, Lidl, has its eyes on the North Texas market. Lidl plans to open one of its first Texas stores in Colleyville in 2019, according to the city.
