Aldi Has Plans for Wilton

WILTON — At a Nov. 20, 2018 Wilton planning board meeting Aldi Inc. sought permission to build a grocery store located at 14 Lowes Drive with a driveway connection to the existing Lowe’s store in Wilton. Following the meeting a public hearing was held on Dec. 19, 2018.

The Aldi grocery store will lie on roughly 2.1 acres of land and will be approximately 19,896 square- feet of retail space and 434 square- feet of loading and storage area. The Aldi’s plot is part of a 34-acre subdivision owned by KMDA Development according to Ryan K. Riper, P.E. Director of Planning and Engineering for the town of Wilton. For now, they are naming the remainder of the land the “Wilton

Marketplace” which there are not yet plans for. There are 3 other lots on the Wilton Marketplace parcel. Aldi is lot one.

The discount grocer chain has stores in Clifton Park and Ballston Spa, in Saratoga County. Aldi also has more than 1,600 stores across 35 states. Already in the surrounding area, Wilton residents can shop at Walmart and Healthy Living Market at the Wilton Mall.

The development of the grocery store will include the creation of a new town road as well. After further development of the site, the new road will connect to Old Gick Road. Current plans include a parking lot that has 93 parking spaces as well.

In 2007, Aldi purchased a different plot within the 34 acres for $1.2 million from KMDA.
