ENGLEWOOD — The 63rd Street Aldi is reopening next week with open ceilings, natural light and a larger food selection.

Part of an $1.6 billion nationwide push to remodel and expand Aldi grocery stores, the redesigned 620 W. 63rd St. location will reopen Oct. 28.

The 12,000-square-foot store used environmentally friendly materials in its construction, Laura Branneman, Batavia division vice president, said in a statement.

The store will be open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. daily.

The company announced in 2017 it would upgrade 1,300 stores nationwide. The low-cost grocer also announced a plan to expand curbside grocery pickup service to 500 additional stores across the country.

Aldi also is reopening a remodeled store in Chicago Lawn at 6025 S. Western Ave. on Thursday. That store will be open 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
