Select Assortment Discount Grocer ALDI Opens First Northern Michigan Store in Traverse City December 3
Grocer Introduces Shoppers to Big Savings and Better Quality
On Monday, Dec. 3, select assortment discount grocer ALDI will offer Traverse City shoppers a smarter alternative as it opens its first Northern Michigan store, located at 3123 South Airport Road West. With more than 1,200 stores in 32 states, ALDI is known for high-quality grocery items at unbeatable prices.
In celebration of the grand opening of the Traverse City store, ALDI will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 3, to which the public is invited to attend, sample ALDI exclusive brands, tour the new store and shop for their favorite grocery items. Additionally, guests can enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to be one of five winners of a holiday entertaining prize pack, including seasonal items and ALDI gift certificates.
Customers can expect to find more than 1,400 of the most frequently purchased items sold under ALDI exclusive brands for prices up to 50 percent less* than traditional supermarkets. A model of efficiency, ALDI eliminates overhead costs by offering smart practices, such as a cart rental system through which shoppers insert a quarter to release a cart and receive the quarter back upon the cart’s return. Other cost-saving practices include a smaller store footprint, open carton displays and encouragement of customers to bring their own shopping bags.
To ensure its exclusive brands meet or exceed the national brands on taste and quality, ALDI conducts rigorous testing on all products. ALDI stands behind this quality with a Double Guarantee: If for any reason a customer is not 100 percent satisfied with a food product, ALDI will gladly replace the product and refund the customer’s money.
Normal Business Hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
ALDI accepts cash, debit and EBT cards.
*Based upon a price comparison of comparable products sold at leading national retail grocery stores.
