COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Aldi is nearing the end of construction of its second location in the Fountain City.

The discount retailer will occupy a space in the Midtown Shopping Center on Macon Road. The plaza has seen lots of redevelopment since Kmart closed in 2017 with the addition of AutoZone, Roses, and Panera Bread.

Starbucks is also under construction in the shopping center. An abandoned bank was demolished last fall to make way for the coffee chain.

“Our new Columbus store is on track to open Thursday, August 4,” said ALDI Jefferson Division Vice President, Shaun O’Keefe. “We look forward to serving even more Columbus residents and providing them with amazing products at even better prices.”

Aldi opened its first Columbus location on Veterans Parkway in 2015.
