aldi grand opening

Houston Heights and Westchase residents have something to be excited about this Thursday. Brand-new ALDI stores will be opening in their neighborhoods! In addition to the fanfare that typically accompanies store openings, ALDI is enticing people to be there bright and early by offering free gift cards to the first 100 shoppers at each location. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if it’s worth camping out for, but nothing says “thanks for letting us join your community” like great, free perks!

These two new ALDI location will host ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Thursday, October 3 at 8:30 a.m. Shortly after those scissors slice through the ceremonial ribbon, the popular Golden Ticket giveaway will commence! The first 100 people in line at each location will be given an ALDI gift card pre-loaded with a value somewhere between $5 and $100. Not too bad for just showing up to support a new business! While waiting in line, shoppers and $100-hopefuls will enjoy samples of ALDI-exclusive brand foods and be entered for the chance to win a year’s supply of ALDI produce.

With their focus on saving customers time and money, ALDI is a great addition to any neighborhood. They’re known for offering exclusive products as well as national brands at affordable prices.
