Aldi has announced that its Longfellow store will reopen this week, four months after it was damaged during the civil unrest in Minneapolis.

The retailer confirmed that the store at 2929 27th Ave. S. will open its doors on Wednesday, Sept. 30.

It comes a few weeks after Target announced that its Lake Street store, which was similarly damaged and looted in the May riots, will reopen to shoppers in mid-November.

"We feel very fortunate to be reopening the doors to our Longfellow store so quickly. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of the community and dedication of our staff,” said Matt Lilla, Aldi Faribault division vice president, in a press release.

"The entire Minneapolis community has been impacted, and it’s encouraging to see how quickly we’ve come together to rebuild. We are honored to serve this strong community, and we look forward to welcoming shoppers back and providing them with fresh and affordable groceries once again."

The store opens Wednesday and will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
