ANTIOCH —A new Aldi grocery store opens Feb. 28 with a ribbon cutting at the new location, 1390 Deep Lake Road.
“As ALDI continues to grow in northern Illinois, we are pleased to open this new location to help more customers stretch their dollars even further,” said Chris Hewitt, 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 surprised by the savings and impressed by the quality.”
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is at 9 a.m. The public is invited to attend and sample Aldi exclusive brand products, tour the store and shop. Additionally, shoppers can enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win a prize pack of seasonal products and gift certificates.
The Antioch store showcases the “new look” of Aldi, company officials said. The store will have higher ceilings, improved natural lighting and environmentally friendly building materials, such as recycled materials and energy-saving refrigeration and light bulbs.
Over the last several years, Aldi has added approximately 50 to 80 new stores each year. Lake County stores include Lake Zurich, Mundelein, Park City, Round Lake Beach, Waukegan and Zion.
