ST. LOUIS, MO — Discount grocery chain Aldi is scrapping plans for a new store in south St. Louis County. There had been plans to build the new location along Telegraph road in front of Oakville Middle School and Wohlwend Elementary School.

Aldi is canceling those plans and its contract with the Mehlville school district after reviewing the costs and restrictions of the project.
