New Tampa’s first Aldi store will hold it’s eagerly-anticipated Grand Opening on Thursday, July 29.
The store, located at the corner of Bruce B. Downs (BBD) Blvd. and Highwoods Preserve Pkwy. at the site of the former Ruby Tuesday restaurant, will be 19,160 square feet with 106 parking spaces.
“Our new Tampa, Florida, store is on track to open Thursday, July 29,” Matt Thon, the Haines City, FL, division vice president for ALDI, told us in an email. “We look forward to serving Tampa residents and providing them with the best grocery shopping experience and will reach out with more information closer to the Grand Opening.”
As part of the construction of Aldi (18002 Highwoods Preserve Pkwy.), a new sidewalk has also been built on Highwoods Preserve Pkwy., to aid pedestrians who are shopping, as well as those using the bus stop at the same corner.
Aldi is a popular German discount grocer that carries brands that many shoppers here in the U.S. may not recognize, including their own. More than 90 percent of the brands Aldi carries are exclusive brands. Aldi is investing more than $5 billion to remodel more than 1,000 existing stores, while opening roughly 120 new stores in 2021.
While no specific Grand Opening details have been announced, typically the stores will hand out things like free eco-friendly bags, samples and prizes, like gift cards. Store hours are 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
