Expect to see an updated exterior that reflects the latest Aldi branding and interior design. The steel beams that were added to distract from the lack of windows, and the taller translucent portion on the corner, will be removed.
New windows, though small and too high for our taste, will be added along the Broadway facade. The store will be expanded out to the lot line with a corner entrance directly on Broadway and Sunnyside.
Inside, expect wider aisles, better lighting and higher ceilings.
We are most happy to see the removal of the "garden" along Broadway that had more weeds than flowers most of the time. The tall, overgrown garden also provided a good hideout for not-so-great activities along the front side of the building.

and trees instead of the garden
The garden plot was also not in the initial plan, just trees. We are told that the back entrance will remain.
We will be much closer to the plan that was originally presented to the community over 11 years ago after this remodeling.
