|Jan mentioned Save a Lot....are they a lot alike?
In my opinion, there's no comparing Aldi and Save a Lot; Aldi is a much better, more economical store.
|I love aldi, in Germany there are two types of aldis one for the north and the other is the south, all the northern hemisphere has northern aldi and the southern they have the south aldi, you will notice this just by the signs
Exactly! The 2 brothers that founded the company basically split the chain in half, and it's known as "Aldi North" and "Aldi South". (Aldi is also the parent company of Albertson's and Trader Joe's. ) The Albrecht brothers are, I believe, listed in the top 10 wealthiest people in the world.
Unfortunately, a lot of people view Aldi as a 'food stamp store' (and no, I'm not saying anything against people who need a little help with stamps). Around here, food stamps account for about 1/3 of the business.
If you're a chocaholic, you have to try their chocolate bars. Most of their chocolate candy is imported, and it is fabulous! The majority of their items, while under the Aldi label, are actually name brand. I won't buy coffee anywhere else (did DH tell me it's actually Hills Bros.? I can't remember) And there are customers who refuse to buy their produce anywhere else. The quality of produce at any given time is largely determined by the warehouse that serves your specific store. Around here, produce is a top priority; if wholesale prices go too high (for example, a freeze that affects lettuce prices) Aldi will stop carrying lettuce until the price becomes more reasonable.
Ok, your Aldi lesson for the day is finished.
Sorry 'bout that.
