There will be a grand opening ceremony when the store opens for business at 9 a.m., with coupon giveaways and chances to win prizes, says DeBenedetto, who currently works at the Aldi in Springfield.
The Annandale store will have a similar layout as the Springfield store and will have the same products carried by all the other Aldi stores.
The store hours will be 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday.
The Aldi is in a storefront in the Annandale Shopping Center that had been vacant since a Bloom grocery store closed five years ago. The Aldi won’t occupy the entire space, however; there are two retail spaces at the end of the shopping center still available for lease.
