Aldi is continuing its rapid US growth by investing nearly $180 million in remodels to 130 of its Chicago-area stores by 2020, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The push is part of a broader effort to move the chain into modern times.
Like the remodels in other parts of the country, the new stores will be brighter, more contemporary in design and, in some cases, slightly larger. The increased space will allow for an expansion of natural and organic products.
Aldi plans to add around 600 more stores across the country in the next three years, pushing its total to 2,000 locations.
