German grocery store chain ALDI is reopening its Dacula store with a new layout and giveaways next month, company officials said Monday.

The store at 3565 Braselton Highway will reopen with a ribbon cutting at 8:45 a.m. July 11. The first 100 customers will be eligible for free gift cards as part of a Golden Ticket giveaway and there will be a “Produce for a Year” sweepstakes drawing as well.

The store is one of 42 ALDI locations in metro Atlanta that are undergoing renovations. Officials said the store will feature “expansive refrigeration space” and an expansion of produce offerings.

The company is expanding its fresh food selections, including easy-to-prepare meals and organic food choices, by 40%.

“The updated ALDI store layout has even more to offer shoppers. Stores are easier to navigate and have more space for the products people love the most,” said Shaun O’Keefe, ALDI Jefferson division vice president.

“We can’t wait to show our customers ... their newly remodeled store, and continue providing the affordable, high-quality foods we know they love at ALDI.”

The store will be open 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.
