PETOSKEY — Grocery chain Aldi recently announced its Petoskey store will reopen on Thursday, Nov. 5, following a remodeling and expansion project.

Changes made to the store at 2130 Anderson Road in recent months have included a slight southward expansion of the building’s footprint, as well as some revisions on the interior. The store remained open during early stages of the remodeling, but portions of the project prompted a temporary closure of the store earlier this fall.

In a press release, Aldi stated the work is part of a remodeling and expansion intiative targeting more than 1,300 of the value-focused chain’s stores nationwide. The project brings updates to the Petoskey store’s layout as well as enhancements to the on-site refrigeration, allowing for the selections of fresh and convenience foods to be expanded.

“The updated store will feature additional storage for even more fresh produce, meat and dairy,” said Aldi Webberville Division Vice President Ryan Fritsch in an emailed statement. “We are always evolving our product mix, which is more than 90 percent private label. Since 2018, ALDI has increased its overall product selection by 20 percent, including a 40 percent increase in fresh food offerings. The carefully selected, award-winning product mix at ALDI includes organic meats, fresh produce, gourmet cheeses, sustainable seafood, gluten-free products, specialty wine, on-trend items and so much more, all at unbeatable prices.”

Plans call for the Petoskey store to operate 9 a.m.-8 p.m. daily when it reopens.

As reported in an earlier News-Review story, Aldi’s Petoskey store opened in 2015. For more information about Aldi, see www.aldi.us.
