ILION – Demolition is now underway at the Aldi grocery store on Central Avenue in Ilion.
The old store is being torn down to make way for a new modernized store, which is being built adjacent to the old location.
The new Aldi store will be similar to the revamped stores in Rome and North Utica. It's a 2,200-square-foot building, which is bigger than the previous 1,500-square-foot store.
Employees at the Aldi store in Ilion say the new store, along with a new parking lot, is set to open in November.
