Discount grocer Aldi is remodeling its Washington Boulevard store and will reopen Aug. 28, the supermarket chain said today.
The store will have more refrigeration space, higher ceilings and more natural lighting. The company, known for a low-overhead, store-brand strategy, has been refurbishing stores throughout the Baltimore area. The store at 3140 Washington Blvd. closed for the project on Aug. 3.
"As important as price is, there’s only one way to attract and keep shoppers: You have to have quality products," said Jeff Baehr, Aldi's Frederick division vice president.
When the store reopens, shoppers can sample products and enter sweepstakes to win Aldi gift certificates. The retailer runs nearly 1,300 stores in 32 states and has been growing at a fast clip, adding 80 stores a year.
