OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - An official grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony was held Thursday for an Aldi grocery store in Opelika.
The store is located at 2400 Frederick Road.
“This is great news and I’m so glad that they are having their grand opening because I’ve had no less than 10,000 people ask me when is ALDI opening,” said Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller. “Well here a few weeks ago, I could tell them March 7th. So, today’s a big day in the Opelika community. We welcome this brand-new merchant to our market. They bring a fresh new concept for grocery shopping. I think it’s very exciting.”
A ticket giveaway, Produce of the Year Sweepstakes, and product sampling took place after the ribbon cutting ceremony.
