Three businesses plan to locate in the City of Oregon if permit filings in the city’s building and inspection department are any indication.

According to records in the department, representatives of ALDI, Inc., Mattress Firm, Inc., and Gateway Recycling and Reduction, Inc., have filed for permits needed to either construct a building or move into existing structures.

ALDI, a discount grocery chain, intends to construct a 17,887-square-foot building at 3728 Navarre Ave.

The estimated construction cost is $1.1 million.

Jim Gilmore, commissioner of the building and inspection department, said the company has indicated it intends to use the front third or so of the 9.5-acre parcel for the building, which would sit across Navarre from a Walmart store.

Seven structures on the parcel will be razed, according to the permit.

ALDI opened 100 stores across the country in 2009 and said then it planned to open 100 stores this year, about a third of those in Texas, according to its website.

The company has more than 1,000 stores in 31 states.

An email message left with a company spokesperson was not returned.

Mattress Firm has applied for an occupancy permit to locate at 2953 Navarre Ave.

Gilmore said the permit would allow the company to move into three units at the Navarre Crossings retail complex.

According to the phone directory, Mattress Firm operates five other stores in the Toledo area.

Gateway Recycling has applied for a change of use permit to move into a 112,000-square-foot building at 926-930 Dearborn Ave,

Currently, the company has a facility at 1800 N. Water Street, Toledo, and in Cleveland.

The Dearborn Avenue property is owned by Willis Day Properties, Inc. and is adjacent to I-280.

Contacted Thursday Tom Sustersic, Gateway president, said he was in a meeting and would discuss the company’s plans later.
