If you are like me and have noticed a lot of demolition work taking place on 33 around where the Mashita food truck parks, you may be wondering what might be constructed in that location. Unfortunately, there is nothing going up in that location at the current moment. The owner is simply clearing trees to make the property more marketable to sell.

If you have any questions about this development or any others, call or email me.
By now, you may have driven past the intersection of Country Club Rd and East Market St and seen some construction activity. This is where the new Aldi will be built. Aldi is a discount grocery store that started in Germany. The owners of Aldi actually own Trader Joe's as well.

Other amenities include: Parks, Green space, playground, walking trail around the lake. The development plans to make more walking trails and a Dog Park.
Preston Lakes has plans to create a shopping experience as well as a residential experience. They have plans that include a grocery store. My understanding was that the grocery store had not been decided upon yet. So, I took it upon myself to suggest that Trader Joe's be built in the area. According to the developers, they've tried and Trader Joe's continues to not be interested in the Harrisonburg area. So, if you are like me and think that Trader Joe's would flourish in the Harrisonburg area, take a minute to make a location request on their website. Direct Link
