1 . "I shop there all the time and..."

in fact do most of my shopping there. The only time I have had a problem with anything they have doubled my money back. Got a check from Aldi AND from the manufacturer of the product I had issues with and ended up getting more BACK than I had paid for it! The only thing I don't buy there hardly ever is fresh beef chicken or pork items (like chops hamburger cut up chicken etc) and that is because I can get it cheaper here in my local grocery store. Some things are seasonal like spiral hams so when they come around I buy them and freeze them for later when they are not in stock. Much cheaper at Aldi and better taste/quality than I can get at Walmart etc.

Germany’s Albrecht family..brothers own them. No TJ in my area but there are Aldi's within a 45 min drive in several directions. From what I have read by past people posting about Aldi's is that most are really great but there are some that must not be managed as well and are issues with produce and such. In such cases I would message them on Facebook and definitely let them know the issues. They WANT to address and correct them in my experience..few that I have had..but they don't know about the problems unless they are told. Just message corporate on their facebook page..someone will most likely call you to speak to you directly. Again..that has been my experience with the few issues I have had there.

2 . "Some info about Aldi's"

Aldi's is kinda like a box store meets Trader Joe's. You'll need a little while
to get accustomed to their products, but once you do you'll be hooked. I like a lot
of their imported products. They have stuff from France, Italy, Germany, Vietnam, etc.

I haven't been to Aldi's in a couple of years, but I just happen to go last night. I went
to do "impulse" buying (like I do at Trader Joe's) and I only spent about twelve dollars or so.

If you like chocolate, they sell a lot of German chocolate of pretty good quality.
Aldi's is a German based company, and I hope you have fun shopping there.
Prices are very reasonable.

Posted on Aug-19-17 at 10:21 AM (Eastern) by 75.180.37.22

very few name brands and I didn't like the brands they had,reminded me of sav-a-lot if you ever been to one of those their produce is usually old like its been in cold storage,not much taste my mother loved it and went all the time I guess its up to the person I thought their ham tasted funny the one time I bought it, we did like their milk and they had good sales on it like $1.79 a gallon. The best thing to do is try it and see

My local Aldi charges you for bags if you do not bring your own. Also, if you want a cart, you have to put a quarter in a slot and then you get it back after you return the cart.

It's good and bad. They have great chocolate and the spiral ham at the holidays is amazing. They have a line of gluten free and a light and fit line. They get some really great deals. And you pack your own grocery. So bring bags. Cost a quarter for the cart.

Produce is hit or miss like any grocer. You have to look at it and pick well. But I think they do a better job than my major supermarket in taste in the produce dept

I buy their chicken tenderloins at $2.69 a pound and they have always been great

I guess the concept is similar to save a lot. But the quality FAR out shines a save a lot store! I have gone to save a lot a few times and not bought much. We have one in town and I haven't been in almost 2 years!

In memory of my beloved beautiful brother Sonny Some people still think eating organic all organic is expensive and let's be honest some stores indeed yes.....for instance I have a old organic farm right down the road from me been in operation since 1938......omg their meat is all grass fed and range free and they grow all their own herbs and veggies and most fruits......Now we do treat our family to a annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve and Day Dinner with all the trimmings but the store is very tiny but the prices are outrageous yet for these holidays we stretch our home from the morning will smell of their fresh organic Turkey and Ham on the bone......Then we also have Whole Foods again very very expensive. However Trader's Items are fantastic and not expensive at all. Also our big store out here is Super Stop and Shop and they carry a huge selection three full aisles all organic and there is where I can use an Organic Grocery Coupon and have it doubled....love all organic and range free and grass fed. Personally I have not purchased any meat no meat any seafood from any other place........Peace to all

Ad comes out Wednesday and the sale goes till the next Tuesday.
The milk and egg prices are incredible! I have been buying eggs for .49 for several weeks, now.
Their strawberries are always the cleanest and best in the city!
If you watch their sales all year, you can come up with some of the best, unique Xmas gifts. They don't restock the special sale items, though.

Posted on Aug-27-17 at 07:25 PM (Eastern) by 74.74.245.203

I like Aldis and shop there every week. Once in a while I have problems with the produce, but the rest of the store more than makes up for that occasional transgression. Back during the recession, I was mostly unemployed for almost two years. You will be amazed at what you can get at Aldi's on a very limited budget.
