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.
