Two ALDI stores will close temporarily next week for renovations.

Stores on Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga and South Transit Road in Lockport will close May 17 while cosmetic and eco-friendly improvements are made. The stores will reopen May 24.

Ceilings will be made higher and aisles easier to navigate. The stores will have overhauled lighting and refrigeration to use energy-saving technology and to maximize natural light. Eco-friendly, recycled building materials will be used during construction.
