    Aldi's

    Do you guys shop at Aldi's? Omgosh, it's a prepper mama's heaven. I don't have one near me, but a work related chore has me going by one half hour away just about every other week. I highly recommend. Soups, .49c a can, mixed veggies, .49c a can.Other good things, too. My daughter and I picked up lots of stuff yesterday.

    We have quite a few Aldi stores around here and it's in our rotation of stores we hit. It's great for basics like milk, eggs, butter, cheese, canned goods. Canned mandarin oranges is a favorite of one child. Their hard salami is pretty good as are the fresh pork chops and ground beef. The take and bake pizza is decent.

    There are some things that just don't fly in this house and we simply get them elsewhere. Nobody here will touch the breads they make and both varieties of their bottled water taste terrible ( bad enough I used them for the dogs ).

    Aldis will be seeing new Euro competition in your area of the country - new store chain coming across & starting up in the US - could see some even better $$$$$$$$$s

    Aldis has been around the area sooo long they have saturated the market - they are like convenience stores - I have 6 stores within 15 minutes ....

    We like to hit Aldi's sister company Trader Joes every now and then for a few cases of Two Buck Chuck Cabernet or Merlot!

    that's Aldis main Euro market competition - looks like they are hitting the parts of the US that Aldis is absent or lean >>> should be interesting when the two tangle it heavy & hard ....

    I haven't been to an Aldi's in years. I tried their store brands, and really didn't care for 'em. I'd rather drop the dime for national brands.
    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    Agree that years ago all their stuff was crap!

    But recently in the last couple three years the stuff they sell is better now so My woman has been shopping there recently for some things.

    We have Aldis here . I do not like the lay out or the limited options. Also They Do ban firearms but don't enforce it . I guess that is their way of being PC
