Aldi Market targets Sept. 22 opening

Aldi Market will soon make its debut along Route 7 in New Milford.

A Sept. 22 opening is scheduled for Aldi, now under construction at 125 Danbury Road (Route 7 South).

Aldi spokesman Amy Nadler said "Grand Opening activities are planned for Sept. 22" for the discount supermarket.

Developer Philip Farmer, of Washington, is developing the 4.8-acre parcel north of Lore's Plaza.

Aldi Market is the first of three planned businesses for the site.

Discussions are ongoing with a restaurant and with businesses to fill a condominium-style office complex planned for the site, Mr. Farmer said recently.

Further details could not be given at this time, he said.

"The construction is winding down," Mr. Farmer said. "We're beginning final paving and landscaping. Work on the Aldi Market is moving along nicely."
