Abilene is getting an ALDI grocery store after a remodel of their current Kohl's building!
The City of Abilene confirmed a permit has been filed to remodel the interior of Kohl's on the 4700 block of Southwest Drive to accommodate the ALDI's location. Kohl's will remain open, just reduced in size.
It's unknown when the remodel will be complete.
The ALDI's website describes the history of the chain as follows: "Founded by the Albrecht family, the first ALDI store opened in 1961 in Germany, making ALDI the first discounter in the world. Headquartered in Batavia, Illinois, ALDI now has more than 1,600 stores across 35 states, employs over 25,000 people and has been steadily growing since opening its first US store in Iowa in 1976."
