Grocer Keeps it Simple – Shoppers Save Big
Lake Grove, N.Y. – April 5, 2012 – Beginning Thursday, April 5, ALDI will offer grocery shoppers a smarter alternative as the select assortment discount grocer opens its second Long Island store, located at 139 Alexander Ave. in Lake Grove. Known for its premium ALDI exclusive brands, ALDI is able to offer high-quality grocery items at unbeatable prices.
“We are excited to bring this location to Lake Grove and give even more Long Island shoppers the opportunity to experience our exclusive brands and incredible savings,” said Bruce Persohn, South Windsor division vice president for ALDI. As evidenced by our first store opening in Bay Shore, consumers are really looking for ways to stretch their food dollars, and we have been happy to provide the solution.”
ALDI is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Lake Grove store at 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 5, to which the public is invited to attend and sample ALDI exclusive brands, tour the new store and shop for their favorite grocery items. Additionally, guests can enter for a chance to win one of five ALDI Easter Dinner Celebration Kits through an on-site raffle.
The Lake Grove store showcases the “new look” of ALDI. With higher ceilings, improved natural lighting and environmentally friendly building materials – such as recycled materials and energy-saving refrigeration and light bulbs – the store will offer customers a simple and easy-to-navigate shopping experience.
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.
ALDI also saves shoppers money by keeping stores open during prime shopping times. The newest location will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. ALDI accepts cash, debit and EBT/Quest cards.
