ALDI announces opening date of new Lexington store

ALDI has announced it will open its newest Lexington store at 5548 Platt Springs Road on Thursday.

The grand opening will kick off at 8 a.m. with prizes and giveaways taking place all day.

The store will feature ALDI’s new look and interior format, which Midlands shoppers already have had the chance to see with the $8-million remodel of seven Midlands-area ALDI stores. The new look includes more robust produce, dairy and bakery sections, a modern design, open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials, such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.

With the opening of the Platt Springs location, ALDI will have two stores in Lexington, the first being at 5182 Sunset Blvd. There also are three locations in Columbia and one in West Columbia.

ALDI on Platt Springs Road will be open daily 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
