I have no idea how many years the building that once housed a former Schnucks store at the corner of Delmar and Kingshighway has sat empty. But there is welcome news as the building was recently torn down and a construction crew is working to clear the rubble. A sign on the corner announces that Aldi's plans to build one of its discount grocery stores on the site. This is the second Aldi's location near the CWE, another is located on Page just east of Kingshighway at Aubert.
It's welcome news that the corner, which has long been an eyesore, will fill a need for many and be productive once again.
