The store is larger, but still just five aisles to allow for expedited shopping, officials said.
The revitalized stores feature an added selection of and greater emphasis on fresh products including produce, meat, dairy and bakery items, and a greater selection of healthy, organic options.
They also boast the grocer’s new environmentally-friendly design with energy-efficient refrigeration, LED lighting, open ceilings, more natural lighting and recycled materials.
“I think it looks really nice,” said Kelley Finke, of West Chester Twp., who said she’s been shopping at ALDI for 22 years. “It’s decorated nicely, it’s easy to see.”
She said the store’s prices are what keep her coming back. “I have … five kids and you can save anywhere from 50 cents to $1.50 on every product,” Finke said.
Besides the Hamilton, West Chester and Middletown locations, ALDI also has locations in Deerfield Twp. and Lebanon.
The company previously announced plans to invest $3 billion for the addition of 650 new Aldi locations in the U.S. during the next five years, bringing its total number of stores to 2,000 by the end of 2019.
