Aurora Market set to open up in the spring in former union hall

Updated: October 15, 2020 06:19 PM

There's new life for the former LTV union hall in Aurora. It will be home to the Aurora Market. 


Co-owner Jim Miklausich grew up in Aurora, and remembers it being the hall for the steelworkers at Erie and then LTV. "We recognize with the new school facilities and the possibility of PolyMet mine coming, that Aurora has always been the hub of the East Range. We're extremely excited to be here. The community used to support three grocery stores. We're happy to bring one back."

Miklausich said they are going to demolition what's inside the building, and then have 8,000 square feet of store space. 

The plan is to open in the spring. "We will be a union shop," Miklausich. "It's important to support main street America."

It will be similar in size to their Nashwauk Market.

People who stopped by around noon on Thursday were treated to a porketta lunch.
