Dundas officials announced that the sale of the former Kmart closed last Thursday. Soon the remodeling will begin and CJB II Real Estate LLC of Red Wing will begin transforming the building into a 10-screen movie theater. They also plan to develop part of the area for two to five larger retail operations. They expect to have Sears remain on the site.

Aldi recently submitted a building permit for a site at 611 Stafford Road, for a 18,850-square-foot building. Construction is expected to begin in late spring.
