Rome’s remodeled ALDI grocery at 836 Turner McCall Blvd. reopens Thursday, June 28, with an 8:25 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony as well as a “golden ticket” giveaway for the first 100 shoppers to win select prizes as well as a chance at the “produce for a year” sweepstakes.
Opened in August 2014 on the site where the Village Theaters once stood, Aldi will have approximately 18,817 square feet with five aisles and 11,404 square feet of sales floor space when the $2.5 million expansion is done.
The Rome store is one of 1,300 ALDI groceries that are being remodeled and expanded nationwide between now and 2020 at a cost of $1.6 billion, the company says. That includes 33 stores in the Atlanta area for a total investment of $50 million.
The remodel features “a modern and convenient layout that focuses on what people love most: fresh food, produce, dairy and baked goods. The updated design also features open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials,” according to a company media release.
