ABERDEEN, S.D.—Aberdeen city leaders are excited about the new Malchow’s Plaza to be located in downtown Aberdeen.

It will be located at the site of the former Malchow’s Home Furnishings location, which burned down last October.

The businesses that will be housed there include the Aberdeen Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, South Dakota Small Business Development Center, Aberdeen Development Corporation, Dakota Broadcasting and a business called The Market on the Plaza which will feature food, beverages and local and state made products.

Gail Ochs, President of the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce, talked about the usefulness of having most of the promotional venues all in one convenient location.

Casey Weismantel, Executive Director of the Aberdeen Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, is excited about the prospects of the new plaza.

It’s a $2.5 million project.
