ALDI debuts fresh design of remodeled Kissimmee store

ALDI will welcome shoppers back to its renovated Kissimmee store when it reopens today.

The store, at 4425 W. Vine 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 over $115 million to update 83 stores in Florida by the end of 2020.

To celebrate the Kissimmee store reopening, ALDI will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday at 8:25 a.m., immediately 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 on Friday, Aug. 30, and sample ALDI-exclusive brand foods on Sunday, Sept. 1.

 The updated Kissimmee 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 percent of its total selection new.

This expansion is part of the company’s aggressive national growth and remodel plan, and it includes a 40 percent 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 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.

“The updated ALDI store layout has even more to offer shoppers. Stores are easier to navigate and have more space for the products people love the most,” said Matt Thon, Haines City division vice president. “We can’t wait to show our customers in Casselberry their newly remodeled store, and continue providing the affordable, high-quality foods we know they love at ALDI.”

 ALDI stores are designed to save shoppers time and money. ALDI carries a streamlined selection of exclusive products and national brands, which removes guesswork from shopping and enables customers to find exactly what they need, according to a company press release.

To make grocery shopping even easier for its growing customer base, ALDI launched a partnership with online grocery delivery service Instacart.

The service is available at ALDI stores in locations where Instacart currently delivers. Instacart delivers to 6,000 ZIP codes across 38 states and is accessible to 70 percent (82 million) of U.S. households, making ALDI more convenient than ever before.

 Customers who are interested in ordering ALDI products through Instacart can check if the service is available to them by searching aldi.us/en/grocery-delivery.

Known for offering market-leading wages and health insurance, ALDI is one of the fastest-growing retailers in the U.S., creating new opportunities for people locally and nationwide, the press release stated.

ALDI is adding 25,000 new jobs in stores, warehouses and offices across the country by the end of 2022. ALDI was named to the Forbes list of “America’s Best Large Employers” five years in a row and was recognized as a 2019 and 2018 Indeed Best Places to Work: Compensation and Benefits. As an employer of choice, ALDI is consistently looking to hire the best and brightest talent to join its team.
