A grocery store is moving into a South Side shopping center where Wal-Mart has been trying to set up shop for the past five years.Aldi has signed lease to open a store late next year at 83rd and Stewart.

The agreement comes as Wal-Mart tries to convince city officials to allow it to build a superstore on the Chatham market site.

There is currently a clause in a redevelopment agreement that has kept Wal-Mart out.

The city council could vote on a proposal to repeal it later this month.
