SHOPPERS only have a few hours to grab a bargain before Aldi closes one of its locations in a major city.
The Aldi branch will finally close at 5 p.m. on Sunday, February 12.
That means Aldi customers in north Minneapolis have little time left to shop for groceries at the retailer.
The location at 3120 Penn Avenue North released the following message, according to multiple news reports:
“This store will close permanently on February 12, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.”
A spokesman told the StarTribune that the closure will come as Aldi’s lease in the area is expiring and that it has failed to refurbish the store to accommodate its product range.
But there are a handful of places nearby that shoppers can visit if they still want to shop at Aldi.
- 7600 Brooklyn Boulevard, Brooklyn Park
- 5620 West Broadway, Crystal
- 5025 Northeast Central Avenue, Columbia Heights
The US-Sun has contacted Aldi to ask if there are any more planned store closures in 2023.
But Aldi isn’t the only store in the area set to close forever.
Minneapolis customers will lose two Walgreens, meaning they will no longer have their dispensaries.
OPEN ALDI STORE
Elsewhere, Aldi will open at least three locations this month.
That includes two in Delaware.
The first location on North Dupont Boulevard in Milford, Delaware is scheduled to cut the ribbon on Thursday, February 9th.
This will be followed by a deal at Peninsula Crossing in Millsboro, scheduled for February 23.
Elsewhere, Aldi will open a location in Maryland.
Customers can shop beginning February 16 at 155 Rosewick Corner Place in La Plata, Maryland.
OTHER BUSINESS CLOSURES
Meanwhile, other major grocery retailers will close locations.
This includes two Piggly Wiggly stores.
The first, in Lexington, South Carolina, closed on February 5.
After that, customers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin will have to say goodbye to the Piggly Wiggly location.
No specific closing date has yet been given, but the company’s senior director said in an email that “employee disconnects” are expected to begin “during the 14-day period beginning March 18, 2023.”
“This promotion will be permanent and the entire store will be closed.”
Stop & Shop confirmed to The US Sun that it will close a store in Highland Park, New Jersey on March 23.
Also, on January 19, a location in Brooklyn, New York closed.
“Stop & Shop conducts regular reviews of its store performance and these stores have been identified as underperforming compared to financial expectations,” a company spokesman said.
At other retailers, major drugstore chain Walgreens will close two more locations.
That reportedly includes one in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, on February 22, followed by another in Houston, Texas on Grand Avenue on March 7.
And rival CVS will close the pharmacy section of its store at 400 Massachusetts Avenue NW in Washington DC.
