Aldi Coming to Decatur Crossing Just North of Decatur

If you’ve driven down Scott Boulevard in the last couple of days, you may have noticed that the building they’re constructing where the old Ford dealership sat for years (Streetview) – the one that looked like an Aldi – is, in fact, an Aldi!

The sign went up on the building late last week.  As a commenter wrote in FFAF this past Friday, “What will we do with all of these new grocery stores?”

Big Expansion Plans for DeKalb Industrial Kroger

From Tomorrow’s News Today

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Kroger, which last week ended its policy of doubling manufacturer coupons, will soon begin a massive expansion of their North Decatur Square store. The site, now home to the shopping center, as well as a number of outparcels and hundreds of adjacent apartments, was previously home to a Kraft Foods plant that closed in the 1990s. The Kroger store, which relocated over ten years ago from a nearby center known today as Patel Plaza, is currently 63,419 square feet, but will swell to over 110,000 square feet after the expansion. (The sales floor space will be roughly 70% of the total building.)

Lots more info in the post.
