Rare to find maple walnut, these days!

That means the on-sale Publix price per ounce (under 3 cents) is less than half of Wal-Mart's cheapest stuff.

Their frozen yogurt taste like ice cream, with much less fat content.
Understood, but my favorite is Turkey Hill. Can't find that cheaper than what FL sells it for.

Turkey Hill Natural is on sale for $2.77 at Harris Teeter this week if you are an e-VIC customer. Limit is 4. I just came home from HT, and bought some, which is how I know! It's just the Natural, not the regular Turkey Hill.

Walmart is cheaper than most anywhere else except Amazon. However, in the one near me in Brier Creek, getting through the checkout is so frustrating. Just yesterday, I had about 12 items, so I went to the self checkout. Waited a bit because 2 of the eight units were not operating properly. Got to an open checkout, and everytime I run something over the scanner it records it twice. Then it refuses to recognize the item has been bagged. After flagging down help twice and not finding someone the third time, I gave up. Looked for an express line, which was non existent. Six lines open, all of which had at least 3 cutomers with full baskets. At Costco, kroger or HT, that would be fine - why the checkout people in walmart are so slow mystify me. I returned to self checkout and handed over my basket explaining that I have neither the time or patience to deal with this. To save two bucks is so not worth the aggravation (and I'm a notorious cheapskate). /walmart rant.
Haven't tasted the spicy cocktail sauce at Food Lion. When I said there's no reason to go there other than convenience, there really isn't anything that makes them stand out to me (lack of amenities, prices a little higher than some other places, etc.) It's not the last place I would shop, but it isn't the first either.

With Aldi here and Lidl coming, I think Food Lion's days of being a low price leader are pretty much over.

It's a done deal already. The Aldis in proximity to Lidls are undergoing remodels. My closest Aldi is being remodeled this month so I went to the next nearest, which has been remodeled. There's about 1/3 more inventory now. Lidl starts opening stores in Virginia, North Carolina, & South Carolina this summer.

My father is on a very limited income so I take him to Aldi's to shop (his choice) when I visit. I don't get the Aldi thing at all. Not impressed with the quality of the stuff he buys. Maybe I'm missing something about the place but I don't see me shopping there.

A lot of the Aldi products are put up by name brands. It's usually easy to figure out which. Others are put up by the same places that put up store brands for more expensive chains. Again, it's easy enough to figure that out.

I don't think that Aldi & Lidl will effect the Wegmans expansion. They can always put more emphasis on the readymade food.

They're not waiting to open up a Triangle store before searching for sites in Mecklenburg County.

Aggressive proposal...I like it. This is exactly where density should be.

Well I hope they are also looking at the Charlotte area. But Raleigh is a bit closer to their Richmond stores, and moving further south to Charlotte would stretch their distribution network. But still hoping.
