The store, located at 951 Shooting Park Road, is part of a $1.6 billion initiative to remodel and expand more than 1,300 ALDI stores nationwide by the end of 2020. Locally, ALDI is investing $180 million to update more than 130 stores in Chicago and the surrounding metropolitan area by the end of 2020.
The store’s modern and convenient layout focuses on what people love most: fresh food, produce, dairy and baked goods. All remodeled ALDI stores feature open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials. The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
“Our remodeled store layout will simplify the shopping experience for customers, so they can get out the door with everything they need,” said Heather Moore, Dwight division vice president for ALDI. “We’re excited to unveil these changes in a great market like Peru, where we already have passionate, loyal customers.” ALDI stores are specially designed to save shoppers both 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. ALDI also offers several award-winning products and specialty items that make the hottest food trends affordable and accessible.
This innovative business model has made ALDI one of the fastest-growing retailers in the U.S. As part of the company’s aggressive expansion plans, 25,000 new jobs will be added in stores, warehouses and offices nationwide by 2022. ALDI recently was named to the Forbes America’s Best Large Employers list and is proud to offer staff market-leading salaries and benefits.
