Lexington is getting a second Aldi location, and it has an official home.

Southern Vision Real Estate represented the seller of 2.82 acres on Platt Springs Road for $1.75 million to the German-founded, Illinois-headquartered discount supermarket.

Southern Vision spokeswoman Amy DeVore said the Aldi will be located at 5506 Platt Springs Road.

“Our company has been working on this for quite some time,” DeVore said.

Krysta Cearley, vice president of Aldi’s Salisbury, N.C., division, confirmed the new location in an email. The company does not yet have a projected opening date or any other details.  

Aldi has a Lexington location at 5182 Sunset Blvd., as well as locations in Columbia and West Columbia.
