LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Estero is close to getting a brand new grocery store.  But not everyone is giving it a thumbs up. 

The discount chain Aldi wants to build a store on the east side of U.S. 41, just north of the Walmart on Estero Parkway.

The company showed its plans this week, but some say it's going to cause traffic problems in an area that's already congested.

People say the area at least needs a stop light if the grocery store is going in.

Aldi also has plans to open a store in Lehigh Acres.
