A tiny Aldi trip: What you’ll find
I’ve been shopping at Aldi for a few years now, ever since they did a big expansion and added a ton of stores. Now, I’m wondering why more people aren’t shopping there all the time!
You will see more popular brands here, but also quality German brands (especially in the bakery area), as their parent company is German and also owns Trader Joe’s.
- Bring a quarter: It’s how you get a shopping cart. Don’t worry, you’ll get it back and they don’t have to hire cart wranglers.
- Bring your own bags: Chicagoans are used to this now, but you’ll pay for bags. Just bring your own, or find an empty box in the store to carry your goods. Note: It’s not fair to just empty a full box of products.
I snapped some photos from my trip yesterday to the LZ location; I’ll add a trip to the Lincoln Park one soon to give some comparison.
What are your great Aldi finds?
