2017 was an exciting time at the Bradford Mall up in McKean County. Big Lots, which has been a major tenant at the mall since 1996, identified a need for more square footage to offer a wider and improved selection to customers and decided to occupy the available space located next to the Dunham’s Sports, which opened in 2016. The 52,700 square feet that formerly was occupied by Kmart underwent a complete renovation from floor to ceiling. The store held its grand opening of the new store in September 2017.
ALDI is currently constructing a brand-new store across from Taco Bell at the intersection of Main Street and Foster Brook Blvd. Their new store will be approximately 20,000 square feet and will have all the consumer staples and products that are typically found at any of their standard stores, such as fresh produce, canned products, and non-perishable goods. ALDI anticipates a target opening date in spring 2018.
