Plans call for the demolition of the center building on the west side of May and to build a new store on that vacated spot.
After CVS relocated to the corner of 50th and May, the shopping center has systematically cleared the 31,000 square foot building and it is now completely vacant.
Aldi is planning to erect a prototypical store of approximately 19,000 square feet and similar to the other locations in the metro area.
The rest of Mayfair will remain relatively unchanged, with tenants Michael's, Steinmart and other smaller retailers and services.
The deal is yet another step in the rapidly developing grocery competition that has seen the Oklahoma City area add Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, Uptown Market and Aldi itself in just the last few years. Additionally, super grocery Winco is now under construction in Moore and will soon start in Midwest City, NW 39th and Portland and N. Pennsylvania near Memorial.
Walmart also continues to expand in attempt to maintain it's sizable market share through super centers and neighborhood markets.
Aldi currently operates almost 10,000 stores in 18 countries including around 1,400 locations in the United States and 9 in the OKC area.
