Aldi filed plans for another discount grocery store that extends its regional reach into southwest Jacksonville.
The Germany-based chain wants to build a store at 8251 Old Middleburg Road S. near northeast Argyle Forest Boulevard in Oakleaf Corner.
Plans show a proposed 19,054-square-foot store on a 2.67-acre outparcel.
The property is owned by Oakleaf 31 Development Corp. and the developer is Aldi (Florida) LLC of Haines City.
Aldi operates five discount stores in Duval and Clay counties and filed or indicated plans for five more.
The first to open were along Southside Boulevard, Normandy Boulevard and Town Center Parkway in Duval County and in St. Johns and Clay counties.
The next five, including Oakleaf, are planned along San Jose Boulevard and Atlantic Boulevard in Duval County and two more in Clay and Nassau counties.
In Duval County, stores are in Southside, Westside and St. Johns Town Center. Plans show Aldi will move into Mandarin, Regency and southwest Jacksonville.
Area real estate director Jason Povlick said in the summer that several Aldi stores would open in the Jacksonville market over the next several years, but he did not want to be specific.
The company operates almost 1,700 stores in 35 states.
