The long-awaited Malchow Plaza will be open this summer, bringing an encouraging, cheerful feel to the spot where the Malchow’s furniture store and apartments burned down in October 2019.
The Plaza is a retail location, coffee shop, restaurant, events center, gathering space, site for offices, and so much more. Everything offered, from the coffee and sandwiches served to the apparel available for sale, is as local as possible, making it a one-stop-shop for all things Aberdeen.
Something new you can expect happening at the Plaza this summer is their farmers market, held under the string lights on the Plaza’s Main Street-facing side. This same stretch of concrete will also offer opportunities for food trucks, concerts, and other downtown happenings.
On the Plaza’s second floor is an event space available to rent for anything from graduation parties to baby showers, with seating for up to 45 people. Plus, paninis and other cold-cut sandwiches, as well as local beer, wine, and cheese, will be on the menu at The Market on the Plaza for lunch and dinner.
The Malchow Plaza also provides a new home for a few familiar faces. Among them are the Aberdeen Development Corporation, the Small Business Development Center, the Aberdeen Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Dakota Broadcasting.
Everyone is welcome to stop by the Plaza the next time you’re out and about! // – Kaylyn Deiter
