Aldi grocery stores have announced plans to open its third location in Delaware County, Ohio, when it opens on Sawmill Road in Powell, Ohio.
The location is in the former Discount Drug Mart at 9963 Sawmill Parkway and will bookend the shopping center with Advanced Auto Parts with a variety of businesses located between – with a single vacancy.
Aldi’s other two Delaware County locations are along Sunbury Road (Routes 36 and 37) east of Delaware, Ohio, and on US – 23 in Lewis Center, Ohio.
The event will feature the opportunity for children to make their own pretzels in this fun session led by Auntie Anne’s. It will include leading the children through the history of the pretzel, demonstrations on how pretzels are made, and a hands-on pretzel making adventure where each child will get to make their own. Following a tour children will receive a twisted pretzel and small lemonade.
$3,896,780; 175 Community Drive, Marion; October 24, 2017.

State of the Marion County Real Estate Market in 2017
Real estate sales showed a nice quantity in 2017 with 2,589 distinct transfers appearing on the Marion County Auditor’s site.
However, Marion County continues to be plagued by sluggish price recovery from the recession. When considered that 92% of the properties transferred were less than $250,000. The largest number of transfers was in the $100 – $49,999 category with 596 properties being exchanged.
There are lots of reasons that the price could be that low – from city lots being exchanged to including sales that are not valid and thus don’t meet the “two separate parties” idea that a valid sale creates.
July continues to smoke this week with 92 valid – and 138 total – property transfers processed by the Delaware County Auditor’s Office this past week. The average valid sale price waas $307,000 in the county last week.
The home of the week is the Concord Township and Powell home at 8550 Tartan Fields Drive. The home has 3,936 square feet with four bedrooms, five full and one half bathroom sold for $1,100,000. The property is situated on 0.43 acres.
The old farmer’s adage is that corn should be “knee high by the fourth of July.”
If that’s the case, then Delaware County farms could be looking at a bumper crop in 2016. C.G. Boyce Real Estate Co. president and broker Toby Boyce – standing about 6-feet tall – posed for a photograph in Radnor Township with some upstart corn. The stalks were easily shoulder-high on July 5 for this field on Price Road near Hemble Road in rural Radnor, Ohio.
So What Does That Mean For Production?
Well, not much it appears.
Twenty-five years ago the knee high axiom worked very well according to farmer’s stories. However, today’s enhanced technology and improved seed hardiness, the corn can be planted earlier. All of which has led to the expectation that first-planting corn be chest high or taller by the Fourth of July. Though, the axiom is not totally discarded with farmers using it as a benchmark for whether corn that had to be replanted is on track for a fall yield.
