Why doesn't Vero Beach have an Aldi Store? Love that store, miss having one since moving out of Brevard County.

I agree. Seems there's enough population to support one. I go to the one in Melbourne whenever I have business there. Don't forget Downtown Produce. Love it. I think that would do well here too.

Yes, I agree. We definitely need one down here. Either in PSL, Stuart, or Vero, I don't care where!

I expect one will pop up soon. They are building a huge distribution center in royal palm beach.

Someone will have to explain the fuss to me though. I stopped briefly at the newish store on Okeechobee Blvd and saw nothing but unknown brands and the prices didn't seem all that great. Reminded me id a save a lot, or stuff you'd find at a dollar store. Haven't been back since then.

The difference is the quality of their goods. They are equal to, and in some cases superior, to national brands.

Even though we have had one here for years, I only went once and thought the same thing. I did pick up a couple name brand items as well as trying the off brand, but the store brand seemed way inferior to Publix store brand.

Their website says you have to pay a quarter for the cart, buy or bring your own bags, are only open limited hours, don't accept credit cards, and carry 14,000 items compared to 30,000 of most grocery stores. AND mostly carry their own brands.

Considering this is a German company and 24 hour Walmart + Sam's is centrally located, I wouldn't expect any demand here for this store.

And I'm too much of a brand loyalist to start fooling around wasting money with brands I don't know. I just opened a box of glass "Store" & Lock containers (no name brand)...and one broke just removing the packing paper. Now I have to drive over and return it at Bed Bath, wasting an hour for nothing. The only reason I bought them was because the name brands are all color lids and I don't like all that in my fridge.

I'd have to disagree. I shop both places and see little difference in the store brands. As a matter of fact, aldi's yogurt, canned new potatoes, queso fresco, cherry preserves,frozen fish and many other items are better. I'm not saying they don't have some items I don't like, just that many are quite good.

The quarter for the cart is returned to you when you return the cart . Yes it's bring your own bags as well... There was an Aldi in NY where I lived and I thought it was a great store, no frills , low cost , kind of a save a lot type but a bit better . Most of their private label stuff was pretty good, if you don't like it , it's double your money back if you return it...... Nice prices on Milk and eggs too, would very much like on here in Port st Lucie

No credit cards? Seriously? If that includes bank debit cards I will never be shopping there, I don't carry cash. I'd be hard pressed to come up with a quarter for the cart.
