You want an Aldi for quick groceries or a corner store?

There is an Aldi on Mason Rd near the entrance to the east side of Cinco Ranch (inside 99). Every time I drove past, there was maybe 1 or 2 cars in the parking lot. I drove by yesterday and it's still in business. No idea how. Though I recall some people in another thread saying some Aldi's are "nice"?

It's as if you haven't paid attention to any of the other retail springing up along 1463. It's not exactly Highland Village or even Rice Village shopping over there.

And please tell me about the Central Market down the street. Now, that I would truly get excited about.

With the new HEB and Kroger going in right there Aldi doesn't stand a chance. As stated above about the Aldi on Mason. I've seen at best 5 cars in the parking lot and I'm sure a few of those are workers.

Folks were saying the same thing about the Wal-Mart marketplace near Rylander El. I see lots of cinco stickers on the cars in the parking lot.

Developers in the Houston area know people are like sheep, they will build and folks will come. Why do you think they keep building strip malls with subways, doughnut shops, and nail salons?

Money talks and Aldi is saving people money. When you have a family of 4+ to feed saving over Kroger and HEB can make a bid difference. I am just a family of 2 and way too often just one trip to Kroger for us can hit over $300.

You will always have select few that are too good to shop a discount store like Walmart etc. Heck I can be a food snob but sometimes you want to save money for all the everyday things. Heck my wife loves to hit Whole Foods from time to time and my wallet cries when the bill is $200 and I can carry everything she bought in one easy trip to from the car to the house. I love to hit Doziers or Katy Meat Masters for some good cuts of meat.

Aldi has terrible products. To sum it up, I would say they are filthy, nasty, perverted, obscene.
