The privately held discount grocery chain, Aldi, is on track to become the third-largest supermarket chain in the U.S. by the end of 2022, as they continue to open new stores nationwide. As rapidly-growing Olathe, KS continues to develop westward, the Aldi chain decided to expand its presence in the town accordingly. They hired Crossland to build its newest Olathe location.
This Aldi store design features their latest concept, with open ceilings, a slanted roof and tower over the entrance, and a storefront full of windows to capture the natural light. The overall design and floorplan are very open and spacious, with wide isles. Aldi is a repeat client of Crossland's; they are always very pleased with our processes and quality. Given the number of Aldi stores we've built, we created a tailored program for construction that includes best practices and productive schedules, ensuring on-time project completion every time. Aldi gives its builders five months to complete a build, and we know what it takes to construct these stores efficiently.
Construction for the new Olathe location took place through the winter months. Our team tackled the timeline and the project head-on and finished on time, even with significant snowfall in January and February. The project was also delivered within budget.
