Aldi on Fruitville Pike

The new Aldi store under construction in part of the former Kmart space on Fruitville Pike.

Construction of Aldi grocery stores on Fruitville Pike in part of the former Kmart space and off Rohrerstown Road in Lime Spring Square are progressing toward their spring and summer openings respectively.

Recently, the store sign for the Fruitville Pike store was erected, front doors installed and space for display windows cut out of the front wall.

LNP reported in January that Aldi was replacing its Golden Triangle store, its oldest and smallest here, with the Fruitville Pike store and adding the Lime Spring Square store.

Each is expected to have 15 to 20 employees.

Speedwell Construction is the general contractor for the new-store projects.

Aldi, the German-based discounter best known for its low prices and no-frills approach, opened its Golden Triangle store in 2008. The 5,000-square-foot store’s replacement will measure 24,000 square feet. 

The Lime Spring Square store at 2210 Embassy Drive, behind the Starbucks and Firehouse Subs building, will measure 22,000 square feet. 

They will join existing Aldi stores in Ephrata Township on Route 322 and in East Lampeter Township on Lincoln Highway East in Mill Creek Square.
