WATERTOWN, S.D.–Construction progress continues on a new grocery store in Watertown. 

Discount grocery store chain Aldi is building a new store at 2822 8th Avenue Southeast in Watertown. That’s near the corner of Willow Creek Drive and U.S. Highway 212.

The building is nearly enclosed, and signage at the construction site went up recently.

In an email to KWAT News, Aldi’s Faribault (Minn.) Division Vice President Matt Lilla wrote, “we are excited to confirm we are planning to open our first Watertown store this winter. We will reach back to share more specifics, including the store opening time and hiring efforts, soon.”

KWAT News first confirmed Aldi’s presence in Watertown in early July. Read that story by clicking here: https://www.gowatertown.net/confirmed-grocery-store-chain-aldi-coming-to-watertown/
