I do the vast majority of my shopping at Aldi, especially for the basics. There aren't too many "specials" and I don't like using coupons, so this is my kind of place. Not huge, so I can get in, do my shopping, and be out of there in less than 30 minutes. Love the produce, especially for the weekly specials produce. Finally, there's no better place to go buy good cereal. A friend of mine told me that when he interviewed with Aldi, they shared with him that most of the cereal is name brand (i.e. General Mills or Kellog) and is packaged in a different box. Regardless, it's great. Just remember to bring your quarter, cash/debit card, and some bags!
The selections are getting better all the time. Their produce and meats are always fresh and the prices are wonderful. I've introduced some of my out of town friends to Aldi's and they were inpressed. I shop there regularly.
each time I am either making a grocery day or just picking something up, the staff is always very friendly.
