Residents of West Dayton feel the lack of grocery stores in the area has caused a “food desert,” leaving many without access to fresh food options.
Aldi’s, the most recent full-service grocery store to leave the area, closed its doors a few weeks ago. The store was located in the Westown Shopping Center, around the corner from Gettysburg Avenue where an abandoned Kroger has sat since 2008.
We explored the Kroger and Aldi’s to see what they look like today. WATCH the video above for views of the two locations.
