Aldi’s long-awaited mixed-use project reportedly in works for 2019
Aldi is making good on its promise to open a store in a new Minneapolis apartment building.
The grocer is moving ahead with its plan to participate in a mixed-use project in Minneapolis, with plans to open a new store by spring of 2019. Aldi first announced its intention to participate in the project two years ago, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The store, which will be part of a mixed-use project now called Rex 26, will encompass 21,000 sq. ft. on the first floor of the building — more space than its older Twin Cities stores. It will be one of the few Aldi locations to have underground parking, the report explained.
Aldi currently has 58 stores in Minnesota, and expects to operate more than 70 locations state-wide by the end of 2019, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
