No-frills grocery discount chain Aldi is renovating dozens of its St. Louis area stores as part of a nationwide overhaul of its properties, and it’s scouting the region for new locations.
The overhaul is part of a $1.6 billion plan from the German grocer to renovate hundreds of stores nationwide. Roughly $49 million is being pumped into 37 St. Louis area stores.
An Aldi spokesman said renovations at the O’Fallon, Missouri, store should be underway soon with a reopening date of March 16. Two Florissant stores will be remodeled for late spring.
