Aldi grocery chain will not be coming to Purcellville

It appears Aldi grocery store won't be coming to Purcellville after all.

Purcellville Mayor Kwasi Fraser released a statement Sunday saying the discount grocery chain has decided to discontinue negotiations for space in the former Shop-n-Save space on Main Street.

“After doing a more exhaustive feasibility study, their determination was that projected revenues for a store would not meet their expectations,” Fraser said.

The plaza's developer, Cullmore Properties, is currently negotiating with three tenants who would divide up the 35,000-square-foot space. Fraser said the developer is also considering restructuring the elevation at the front of the center.

Names of the prospective tenants have not been released, although construction is expected to begin within the next few months, the mayor said.

Elsewhere in Purcellville, the old Blockbuster location near Giant Food has been leased to Virginia ABC, and construction will begin in April.

LIDL is 1000, no 1,000,000 times better than ALDI. No loss here....

MAGA Morons Are Governing America

Suggests ALDI is smarter than the last 2 or 3 grocery tenants in that space.
