New grocery opens in Evanston

Evanston Alderman Ann Rainey, 8th Ward, joined employees of the new Aldi Food Market at 2211 Oakton St. to cut the ribbon marking the store’s grand opening this morning.

Evanston Alderman Ann Rainey, 8th Ward, joined employees of the new Aldi Food Market at 2211 Oakton St. to cut the ribbon marking the store’s grand opening this morning.

The store features a limited selection of products, compared to most supermarkets, but claims to offer customers substantial savings on what the store does stock. The store accepts cash and debit cards but not credit cards or checks.

Alderman Rainey said the City Council has been focusing on trying to attract new businesses to Evanston and that the new store is an example of the new businesses being attracted to town.

The store actually is across the street from Rainey’s ward, but she said Alderman Coleen Burrus, whose 9th Ward includes the store, was out of town and unable to attend the opening ceremony.

Company officials say the store will have about a dozen employees.

It’s located next to PetSmart in the Home Depot shopping center.
