Aldi has lodged a development application with Maitland City Council for a $7.4million knock down/rebuild of its East Maitland store.
The application for the Garnett Road site is currently on public exhibition.
Maitland council approved the supermarket (the city's first Aldi) in 2005 and the Rutherford store in 2006.
The German supermarket discounter seems to have plenty of money to splash in the Hunter, recently refurbishing the Rutherford store.
The Hillview Street premises reopened in August with a fresh new look, including better product displays, improved navigation and modern styling, a company spokesperson said.
In 2017 it opened the doors to a new store in Central Maitland - the third Aldi supermarket for the Maitland Local Government Area.
An Aldi spokesperson said in order to improve the store experience for customers, Aldi East Maitland is scheduled to close for construction from March and reopen in November.
"We are currently seeking council approval to replace the existing building with a purpose built structure, allowing Aldi to extend and modernise the store.
"The proposed new building will also provide extra car spaces for customers.
"New features in store will include redesigned shelving, expanded wooden produce bays, as well as extended energy efficient chillers.
"As energy management remains a key priority for Aldi, the new store will have all the benefits of a modern building, including energy efficient LED lighting.
"There will also be improved point-of-sale displays and store signage," the spokesperson said.
"We will keep the community updated as the project advances."
