Why? Have you ever been to an Aldi?

Well, they're probably not shaking in their boots, but if HEB doesn't get their sh*t in one sock and start playing at home like they do for away games then yeah, they're just opening themselves up for someone better to come along here.

Walmart is a threat to HEB, not Alidi.

Aldi, ha. HEB has nothing to worry about. If Albertsons couldnt shake them, I don't see Aldi as being the one who does. (and YES, I have been to all of them)

Aldi is a novelty shop...extremely limited assortment with an extremely heavy presence in Private Label items. If there is already complaints about the amount of Own Brand products at H-E-B, you'll absolutely hate Aldi.

I agree with PR...Wal-Mart is H-E-B's competitor, not an Aldi type store...

I've never heard of them, but they are apparently pretty wide spread. Here's the link to their new site dealing with the move into Tejas:

Aldi Texas

Any competition is good, even if short-lived.

Walmart isn't a threat as far as I am concerned because I dread any trip into their store. Besides the inconvenience, the likelihood of walking into the parking lot to discover a shopping cart trying to mate with your car is quite high.

In reviewing their site, apparently private labeled products make up a large portion of their selection. That's not a good thing. But, in reference to my post above, they require you to "check out" a shopping cart for a quarter. Which is returned when you return the cart. Inconvenient, but I'd gladly suffer the mild inconvenience to encourage all those who normally just park their cart wherever handy.

I always grab a cart, or two, when going into a store to save someone from a "drifter".

What do you mean by that? I think that you mean that the stores in other cities are newer, ritzier than the ones that are here in SA. I've not seen the ones the ones in DAllas, but I've heard that they're high fallutiin. HEB used to provide excellent customer service back in the 80s. I worked there as a sacker and we were required to do much more than the ones do now.
