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.
