Aldi plans to open a grocery store in East Huntingdon, on the old Kmart property near Mt. Pleasant, early in 2019.

In the wake of reopening stores in Hempfield and Unity townships , Aldi will hold a grand reopening of its North Huntingdon store on Thursday.

The store, 8775 Norwin Ave., North Huntingdon, recently underwent a remodeling that includes open ceilings, natural lighting and additional storage for more produce, dairy and meat, the company said.

The grand reopening will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:25 a.m. Thursday. Shoppers will be able to enter a sweepstakes for a chance at winning a year’s supply of Aldi produce.

The remodeling is part of a larger $54 million investment that Aldi is making into 36 stores in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Remodeled stores in Hempfield and Unity reopened on June 27 and Oct. 24 respectively.

Aldi also is opening a new store in East Huntingdon that will bring the total number of Westmoreland County stores to six. The new store, located on the former Kmart property near Mt. Pleasant, is scheduled to open early in the new year.

Aldi is holding a hiring event for the East Huntingdon store from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday at the Holiday Inn Express on Bessemer Road.

The German discount grocery chain is hiring for the position of store associate, which offers a base pay of $11.30 per hour and a raise after six months of employment.

Employees who average more than 25 hours a week are eligible for full health insurance benefits and dental coverage.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
