Do any of you know if the Aldi grocery store in Penn Hills or the one on McKnight road are decent size? I used to go to the one in Holiday Park in Plum but now it's out of the way from where we live. Some of you might not shop there but I was going to get a few cheap things and wanted to go. I've never been to Penn Hills before, is that one easy to find?

Thanks to anybody who knows what I'm talking about...

Okay I take it nobody knows what I'm talking about. I just need to get inexpensive produce and a few things to last me for two weeks because I am seriously spending way too much on food because I'm vegan and it takes its toll shopping at Whole Foods all the time and Market District isn't bad but I still spend way too much there.

If anybody has any idea about the Aldi's let me know.

The only one I have ever been in is located in Shaler Plaza off of Route 8 just past Etna.
It is a fairly small store but, I have gotten some good bargins there. The store at Northway Mall (McKnight Rd.) looks to be much bigger but, I haven't been inside yet.
I don't know where the one in Penn Hills is.

The one in Northway Mall is nicer inside than the one in Shaler Plaza but they have the same stuff and appear to be the same size to me. It is noticeably cheaper but the quality of the prepared foods (orange juice, ice cream, sauces) is decent but not great. They have some health items like low fat mayonnaise but not as many as some people would probably like. I don't think they have a very large produce section, and very few organic foods.

I went to the one in Northway Mall today. It was nicer than the Aldi's I was at a long time ago. I got some bargains, but they had a lot more stuff that my meat eating roommate would have liked. Me, being vegan, didn't have quite as many options, but I did find some cheap ketchup and french fries, lol....

The Aldi in Penn Hills is in the spot where a large Giant Eagle used to be which was formerlly a large PharMor and long before that it was a bowling alley. It's not as large as Giant Eagle's super sized stores but it's big. It's in Penn Hills Shopping Center under Big Lots which was also previously a bowling alley.
