Newport ALDI Opens Monday with Golden Tickets for Shoppers
The new ALDI store in Newport will open on Monday, on the heels of the new Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, amid a grocery boom in the city.
Doors open at 1301 Monmouth Street at 9 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting celebration.
Following the ceremony, the first 100 shoppers will receive a golden ticket, each containing ALDI gift certificates of various amounts. Customers can also tour the store, sample ALDI exclusive brand products and enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win a year’s supply of ALDI produce.
“ALDI is answering the rising demand for our high-quality products as growing numbers of customers in Newport are discovering that they can save time and money at ALDI without sacrificing quality,” said Dan Gavin, Springfield division vice president for ALDI. “Our high-value, high-quality model drives interest as does private label popularity and strong loyalty among our customer base, creating great word-of-mouth interest. Smart shoppers know they can save time and money at ALDI without sacrificing quality.”
Thanks to input from loyal customers, the Newport store presents a new look, offering a modern and convenient shopping environment featuring more room for customers’ favorite products, inviting colors, high ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials – such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting. The store is simple to navigate with easy-to-spot product signage and prominent product prices. Shoppers can say hello to fresh with expanded cooler sections, healthy tips within the produce section and “Dietitian’s Picks” – healthy products handpicked by leading nutrition experts, all making it even easier for families to make smart choices.
