A new grocery store will open in York City later this month.

Aldi will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 26, at 905 Loucks Road.

During a grand opening celebration that day, customers can enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win Aldi gift certificates. And from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., guests can sample the store's exclusive products.

Regular store hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

The Germany-based discount grocery chain has revamped nearly 22,000 square feet of retail space in the shopping plaza anchored by Staples and Tractor Supply Co.

Aldi is the only grocery store in the plaza, which also includes Ashley Furniture, Dollar Tree, Petco and restaurants.

The company says it lowers grocery bills by 50 percent, while using environmentally friendly practices and making nutrition information more visible. All of its store-brand products include a label on the front with a calorie count and other nutritional values.

Also on the front of the package is a label informing customers about recycling information.

Aldi has two other locations in York County: 280 Northern Way in Springettsbury Township and 391 Eisenhower Drive in Hanover.
