Countries within the European Union trend more towards non-GMO foods, when compared with the US.
I picked up a cup of Icelandic yogurt. I saw Irish beef, Italian pasta & pasta sauce. . . mostly the food was made in the USA.

Lidl not charging a fee to use a shopping cart could be bad. If shopping carts leave the premises permanently, the store has expenses to replace them. Raising prices recoups costs.
I noticed the cart handles looked like they could possibly be retro fitted with coin slots. Like the coin slot are was there but kind of molded over.

I've been twice. It is like a bigger Aldi with a fresh bakery and slightly bigger selection, the specialty cheeses and produce specifically. The fresh bakery is a nice addition. Seems like many items have similar packaging and identical shapes to Aldi so I'm guessing they are coming from the same place. The prices are slightly higher than Aldi, $.10 to $.25 higher on items I am familiar with although their sale prices are sometimes better. Based on my normal weekly shopping I would estimate Lidl (not counting sales or coupons) would be about $10-$15 higher overall than Aldi.

My verdict is that it is nice and but I'm going to stick with Aldi for my main store, especially since they changed their opening time to 8 AM which was the one HUGE advantage Lidl had for me. I think those people who never gave Aldi a shot or didn't like the setup or thought they were too good to shop there will be amazed at Lidl's prices compared to traditional grocery stores in the area and will flock there.
