I stopped by for a few items to check it out. Supposedly, their prices are so much lower because of how they operate. Bring your own bags or buy theirs. Bag it yourself. Deposit a quarter for a cart. Return cart for refund of quarter. Some prices do seem lower, but some aren't. Maybe if I go there enough I'll get used to the layout, but it will take awhile. Some brands are different from any I've heard of. Aldi is the name of the store. It's near Walmart.

Several new stores have opened here recently in the general vicinity of Walmart. Those who are first in line to mention this town looks run down can't say it about the area in question.

I'd be leery of off-brand foods. A can of green beans made in China could be bad news.

I didn't look at canned goods, so don't know if there were off-brands or not.

I shopped in Aldi in NC when we lived there. Just like any other supermarket you have to check the labels. Aldi has their own distribution, I believe in the Midwest, & all the canned goods are Aldi brand. I saved between $25-$30 on their brands each time I shopped there. Their Dairy & frozen food prices were the best around. Produce is hit or miss. I did not buy their meats so I can't comment on them.

The money that I saved shopping in Aldi, I was able to purchase our meats and fish at The Fresh Market.

I was told that Trader Joe's and Aldi are owned by the same family. TJ is higher end than Aldi.

TJ's more a specialty grocer than a full service one. The items they have are good and good value to me but I only do the grocery shopping when TJ's has what we are looking to buy. TJ's has been in the DFW area for around 3 or 4 years with the first one in Dallas side of metroplex located in Plano, Texas

Items I bought include cream cheese, brie, a packet of ranch dip mix and sour cream, all were made in the USA, not China. Will check out canned goods next time.

To the bold, it is true. I believe the distribution is in Illinois somewhere.

The wife shops at Aldi. I'm all for it....any place that can undercut HellMart and cut into its market share is a good thing.
