Attention shoppers: Cedar Rapids will officially open its third Aldi location next week!

The new grocery store is located in the Collins Crossing shopping center, right across from Lindale Mall in the old Fresh Market building. The grand opening will happen Thursday, March 28th, and there are all sorts of reasons to stop in! According to their official website, you'll be able to enter to win free produce for a year, receive a free eco-friendly bag (while supplies last), and get to sample some of their best products. If you are one of the first 100 customers there on Thursday, you'll also have a chance to win a "golden ticket," which could be worth up to $100!

The new location will look a bit different than the others here in Eastern Iowa. The Gazette writes:

"The Collins Road Aldi store layout will provide an improved in-store experience, the company said in a news release, and feature additional refrigeration space to accommodate more fresh products. Twenty percent of the product selection will be new items when compared with last year."

The new Aldi will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Other locations here in the Corridor include:

  • 1860 Edgewood Rd SW in Cedar Rapids
  • 5425 Blairs Forest Blvd NE in Cedar Rapids
  • 1001 50th St in Marion
  • 2750 Heartland Dr in Coralville
  • 760 Ruppert Rd in Iowa City
