Is Aldi planning a move to Auburn Plaza? Permits obtained to start work at old AC Moore store

A busy Auburn shopping plaza could be getting a little busier in the coming months.

The Auburn Citizen reports that Aldi filed a building permit for a commercial remodel of the former A.C. Moore store in the Auburn Plaza along Grant Avenue.

While officials with the plaza ownership and grocery chain declined to tell The Citizen more about the possibility – activity appeared to be normal at the chain’s location on the west side of Auburn near the Fingerlakes Mall.

A.C. Moore closed earlier this year after the store was bought out by Michael’s. The site has been empty since the closure.
