Recommended: Aldi opening new store in Aurora, Illinois


Aldi is opening its new store Thursday at 2275 W. Galena Blvd. in Aurora.

The new store is replacing the store down the road at 2134 W. Galena Blvd.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony takes place at 8:25 a.m. followed by giveaways and product samplings.

The new store comes at a time when the company is remodeling stores, part of the Batavia company’s nationwide $1.6 billion store remodel plan. In total, Aldi intends to remodel 130 stores in the Chicago area by 2020 at an investment of nearly $180 million.

The new Aldi store provides a more modern look with a focus on fresh items, including more produce, dairy and bakery sections. The remodeled stores also feature an updated design, open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials, such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.
