A renovated Aldi grocery store on Federal Drive celebrated its grand re-opening on Wednesday, Nov. 22.

After renovations, the Aldi grocery store along Federal Drive in Penn Hills will reopen on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting scheduled for 8:25 a.m.

There are two Aldi stores in Penn Hills located at 16 Federal Drive and 7350 Saltsburg Road.

Following the ceremony, the first 100 shoppers will receive a golden ticket, each containing ALDI gift cards of various amounts.

Shoppers attending are eligible for the Golden Ticket giveaway, eco-friendly bags and Produce for a Year sweepstakes.

The remodeled store will offer a “modern and convenient shopping experience,” according to an Aldi press release.

It will also focus more on robust fresh produce, dairy and bakery products.

Remodeled stores will also feature a modern design, open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.

Aldi plans to remodel 36 stores in Pittsburgh and the surrounding metropolitan area by the end of 2020.

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.
