Aldi to Upgrade Stores In the North Carolina Triangle

    

The Durham News and Observer reports that twelve stores in Raleigh and Durham will be upgraded at a cost of slightly over $1 million each. This is part of a nationwide $1.6 billion store remodeling project which will encompass 1,300 locations by 2020.

Krysta Cearley of Salisbury NC, Division Vice President for Aldi stated “We have served the Raleigh-Durham community for 16 years and we are pleased to invest more than $13 million in updating our stores to better serve our existing and new customers.” She added “we know there is only one way to attract and keep fans; by continually providing the highest-quality products while staying true to what our competitors can’t match – everyday low prices.”

  

Informed observers indicate that Lidl will target the Triangle for locations as they enter the U.S. market. The company has broken ground in Wake Forest and is planning stores in Raleigh, Cary and Clayton.
