ROSCOE (WIFR) – A new grocery store is under construction for residents in the Rockton/Roscoe area.
Workers are building a new Aldi in the 4700 block of East Rockton Road, right across the street from Walmart. The new location will feature environmentally friendly building materials such as energy-saving light bulbs. Rockton mayor Dale Adams says this will be a great addition to the area.
"I think this will be a regional attraction since it's the first Aldi store in the northern part of the county. So, I'm hoping it will be a big success for the entire area. And clearly it not only brings additional diversification. More opportunities, more shopping opportunities for our area residents, but it brings jobs as well,” said Mayor Adams.
The 17,000 square foot store is slated to open in November. It’s expected to bring in over 100 new jobs.
