Aldi

Does anyone shop at ALDI? we are getting one close to us and I'm wondering what their prices are like...if they take coupons...(i assume they don't since it's all generic labels.) From what I saw on the food network last night on it...you pay for a cart for $0.25 but get it back when you return the cart and you also pay for shopping bags...but could you bring in your own reusable bag? I don't like the idea of taking the cart back to the store when I have 2 kiddos to carry along.

It's actually not all generics.. I remember one time I was there and they had Hershey and some other stuff thats name brand. I'm not sure about coupons though. My mom shops there... we don't have one here. As for the cart thing, our Pathmark is like that too. I hate going there. Usually I'll just say forget about it and walk away from the .25c . Their prices are good, especially for canned goods/veggies. I think it runs something like 5/1.00 or so.. much cheaper than the other grocery stores. Again, I haven;t been to Aldi in ages, but it keeps my mom coming back! HTH!

Aldi

No coupons (confirmed by an Aldi cashier) which stinks because there have been a couple of times where I could have gotten stuff for free.

It's realtively cheap (39 cents for a can of chicken broth). Everything I've bought there I've been pretty happy with. I only shop there once in awhile though.

I love aldi. i keep used grocery bags in my car. I love the cereal and dairy and snack food. veggie are good now. as far as the cart goes, the parking lot at mine is not as busy as a grocery store and it isn't nearly as far, distance wise, to return the cart. I can usually find someone headed in and I let them take my cart for free. hth

I like Aldi's....their produce is very good. Eggs, half & half, milk, etc. Usually for the shopping cart I either find someone going and they give me their quarter or I pay it forward. I figure that quarter is a small price to pay for taking the cart back!!

I love Aldi's. Their peanut butter is Jif; their veggies are Green Giant and their cereal is by Post or General Mills (all with their own label on them). My mom talked with the district manager in NC and he gave her this info. We love their Appleton Hams. They are awesome. Definitely their parking lot is never really busy and you don't have to walk too far. It is worth checking out. They do not accept coupons. They definitely have some name brand items in the store.

I went to one for the 1st time about 2 weeks ago. Slightly better prices, yes due to generic. They do carry some brand name items but I was told still NO COUPONS by the cashier/manager. It's worth going to if you really know your prices and comparison shop. I got a bag of frozen cooked medium shrimp (50-60 ct) for $3.49 I thought it was a good deal. The produce is ripe and ready to eat right away. I didn't pay too much attention to dairy as we're still on WIC but a lady in the parking lot told me the milk was a steal of a deal.

I really love Aldi, especially since they have great deals on stuff I don't have coupons for. I buy dairy, meat and produce items there. I also buy anything else that I can't buy elsewhere for less. The store parking lot usually isn't that large or full so taking the cart back really isn't that much more of a walk than going to a normal cart return. My biggest problem is forgetting bags. I have been going for months now and still forget bags. I need to work on that. Oh, and another plus is that since it's basically all their brand of food, and they just put things out in shipping boxes to display, everything is fit into a much smaller store. We get in and out of there so much faster than a normal grocery store and that makes life easier, especially when I have the kids along.

we shop at aldi's..and there is a lot of food there that i LOVE and don't like other stores. like..whole milk. i can't stand whole milk from stop & shop or shop rite. it just taste funny...but i love aldi's. their cookies n cream ice cream is just fantastic.

no coupons..and like adamsmom said, not all of it is generic. they have specials where they will get name brand.

Aldi has good cheap wine. It is the only thing I buy there since they don't take coupons, and can usually get brand names for cheaper since Meijer and Kroger double. I get my milk and eggs from cvs or walgreens, depends on if I have more rr or ecbs. Meat and produce are pretty good there as far as price goes but I have noticed the meat expires (bacon and lunch meat ) quicker than I am used too. Someone told me as far as the produce goes it is a good idea to know the day they deliver their produce. I agree with two babies the cart thing is a pain, I will try to wait out someone in the parking lot and give them a quarter, I keep bags in my trunk. I will ditch the quarter and the cart for someone else to find for 3.99 Cab though!

I love Aldi's! No Coupons - like everyone has said. Also, ours is cash only (or very specific debit cards that I don't carry - so I just withdraw the cash before I go). Bring your own bags - no worries, I keep some in my van all the time. I buy Milk at ours when I cannot find any other deals, gallon of 2% for 2.59 every day - much better than 3.09 at the other big stores. I also buy many canned goods and fruits/veggie's because of the values. Give it a try, never hurts to look for a bargin (and my kids don't notice any difference between the "name brand" and the "generic").
