The source reported that Aldi has finished remodeling 17 Washington-area stores and has scheduled grand re-openings at stores in Stafford, Fredericksburg, and Manassas on May 12. The regional remodel will encompass 30 stores total, with work completed by 2018.

The complete $1.6 billion remodeling plan will cover over 1,300 U.S. stores. As we’ve previously reported, the discount retailer’s remodeling plans include a focus on a more robust produce aisle, with an updated modern design.
