“We are pleased to showcase the new look of ALDI with this updated store in Greenville and continue to help customers stretch their dollars,” said Dan Gavin, Springfield division vice president for ALDI. “As important as price is, there’s only one way to attract and keep shoppers: You have to have quality products. When people try our ALDI exclusive brands, they are excited by the savings and impressed by the quality.”
With higher ceilings, improved natural lighting and environmentally friendly building materials – such as recycled materials and energy-saving refrigeration and light bulbs – the store will offer customers a simple and easy-to-navigate shopping experience.
To celebrate the reopening of the Greenville store, ALDI will hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at March 1. The public was invited to attend the ceremony and tour the store.
A model of efficiency, ALDI eliminates overhead costs by offering smart practices, such as a cart rental system through which shoppers insert a quarter to release a cart and receive the quarter back upon the cart’s return. Other cost-saving practices include a smaller store footprint, open carton displays and encouragement of customers to bring their own shopping bags.
ALDI also saves shoppers money by keeping stores open during prime shopping times. The Greenville store will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. ALDI accepts cash, debit and EBT cards.
A grocery retailer that has grown without merger or acquisition, ALDI has more than 1,200 U.S. stores located in 32 states. Over the last several years, ALDI has added approximately 50-80 new stores each year, expanding the ability to bring grocery savings to more people every day.
