SEMINOLE — After roughly two months of being shut down for renovations, the Aldi at 7777 Seminole Blvd. reopened Thursday.
The remodel comes as the discount grocer spends nearly $2 billion nationwide to update and expand more than 1,300 stores by the end of 2020. In Florida, the chain says it will spend $115 million renovating 83 stores in the same period.
The updated store is slightly larger and has expanded frozen and refrigeration sections to hold more fresh produce and prepared foods. The store also has added natural lighting and modern wooden fixtures.
Aldi in Seminole hosted a grand-opening ceremony on Thursday morning. On Saturday, the store plans to give away free reusable bags — a must at Aldi, which makes shoppers pay for paper bags. On Sunday, the location will have free product samples.
Aldi hit around the halfway mark of its Florida remodels just over a year go when it completed 40 stores.
