I don't know. Maybe I'm missing something, but I wasn't that impressed. I expected the no-frills, bring your own bags experience, so that wasn't a surprise. What I also expected were phenomenal prices and a decent selection. I don't think I found either.
There were some good deals - like 4 ounces of chili powder for 99 cents. But most of the prices were just so-so to me. Now, granted, if I were one to shop at the expensive store every week, I would probably have been amazed by the prices. But I shop at Super Walmart for the most part, stopping at other stores for weekly deals. I think I do just as well there and it's one-stop shopping. Aldi's is not.
As I look at my receipt, I didn't do badly. But I still don't think I'll be back. Here's what I got. What do you think?
