Discount grocer, ALDI, to update Sayre store
SAYRE, PA. - Beginning Friday, June 28, 2013, ALDI will once again offer grocery shoppers a smarter alternative as the select assortment discount grocer reopens its Sayre store, located at 2756 North Elmira St. Known for its premium ALDI exclusive brands, ALDI is able to offer high-quality grocery items at incredibly low prices. The Sayre location will officially close on Monday, June 17, and will reopen on Friday, June 28.
"We are pleased to showcase the new look of ALDI with this updated store in Sayre and continue to help customers stretch their dollars," said Aaron Sumida, Tully division vice president for ALDI. "As important as price is, there's only one way to attract and keep shoppers: you have to have quality products. When people try our ALDI exclusive brands, they are excited by the savings and impressed by the quality."
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.
ALDI challenges customers to switch from national brands to its exclusive brands and save up to 50 percent on more than 1,400 items the store carries. To ensure its exclusive brands meet or exceed the national brands on taste and quality, ALDI conducts rigorous testing on all products. ALDI stands behind this quality with a Double Guarantee: if for any reason a customer is not 100 percent satisfied with a food product, ALDI will gladly replace the product and refund the customer's money.
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 Friday and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., on Saturday and Sunday. ALDI accepts cash, debit and EBT cards.
A grocery retailer that has grown without merger or acquisition, ALDI has more than 1,200 U.S. stores located in 32 states. Over the last several years, ALDI has added approximately 50-80 new stores each year, expanding the ability to bring grocery savings to more people every day.
