CORRECTION: This story was updated at 10:47 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020, to correct the name of Paul Huff Parkway.

ALDI will close its 10-year-old grocery store at 315 Paul Huff Parkway on Saturday.

But five days later at 9 a.m. next Thursday, the German-based grocery giant will open a new and upgraded supermarket site next door.

"One of the reasons ALDI is so successful is because we listen to our customers and have the ability to adapt," said Troy Marshall, Mount Juliet division vice president for ALDI. "The Cleveland community has remained loyal ALDI customers for 10 years, and we can't wait to show them the same ALDI model they know and love, but with a new store and even more space for their favorite products."

The new store, like nearly all ALDI locations, will have about 12,000 square feet and will be leased from a private landlord. ALDI will continue to operate with the same staff in Cleveland and remain open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, Marshall said.

"We have relocated some of our stores to ensure the design and customer experience match the high quality of our products," he said. "The new Cleveland store will feature open ceilings, natural lighting, environmentally-friendly building materials and additional storage for even more fresh produce, dairy and meat."

The Cleveland store is the only ALDI in Bradley County, but ALDI has seven other stores in the region, including grocery outlets in Hixson, East Brainerd, Ooltewah, North Chattanooga, Fort Oglethorpe, Dalton and Calhoun, Georgia. Nationwide, ALDI operates nearly 2,000 stores in 36 states.

ALDI plans to become America's third biggest grocery chain by the end of 2022.

ALDI pioneered private-label goods and for the past four decades has remained focused on saving people money on the food and products in their stores.
