Snapshot: ALDI - Clarion, PA

ALDI Food Market
Opened: unknown
Previous Tenants: none
Location: 22827 PA-68, Clarion, PA
Photographed: July 1, 2023
Here's a quick look at a newly-renovated ALDI to the south of downtown Clarion, a store of just over 15,000 square feet built at some point before 2007. You'll notice that the renovation of the exterior is not nearly as extensive as some of the other renovations we've seen, such as New Brunswick. Is ALDI getting cheaper with their renovations? Is there just not enough competition here to warrant that much to be done?
The store is the only dedicated grocery store in Clarion since the Comet Food Warehouse closed in 2019. There's also a Walmart nearby, but for a traditional supermarket, you'd have to travel about 16 miles east to the Giant Eagle in Brookville.
Our last stop in western PA before we return to the northeastern PA area is Johnstown, where we'll start by seeing an independent corner store tomorrow on The Independent Edition!
