Another nice thing about Aldi is that a very high percentage of their store managers and upper management are veterans. Their employees are paid very well too.

All the stores we had contracts with had veterans as managers.

My buddy’s dad is a retired meat inspector. Said the only meat he will eat is from an animal he raised himself or Aldi. I love that place.

Take your own bag if you go to Aldi. Or buy them there.
They don't have bags.

Not directly related to food at Aldi's but I really like their shopping cart system. You have to pay .$0.25 to use a cart but you can get it back when you are done with it. Yeah, it's a little hassle but it is one of the things that contributes to their ability to offer low prices.

Might sound strange but I really have fun with it during Christmas. Instead of getting my $0.25 back I sometimes offer the "pre-paid" cart to somebody who is just walking in to the store and say "Merry Christmas". Amazing the smiles it brings to other folks' faces. I always figure that maybe, just maybe they will pass it on to someone else. Well worth a quarter to me.

With human nature being what it is, I've found carts left in the parking lot with the quarter left in it. Too lazy to take it back to the corral.

Most people at ours just take it back and leave the quarter and all for the next person and there’s never a cart left in the lot

At the store in South Asheville, it is rare to need a quarter for your cart. We all just pass out cart to someone else and they do the same.

Always thought that a den of cub scouts could offer to push carts to cars and unload groceries in exchange for keeping the quarters. Simple fun raiser for Cubs.

I tried once and short of just starting an all out fist flying fight with that stupid quarter thing on the cart I gave up and just let it sit there for the next fella. They gonna have to make the deposit like 10 bucks or more for me to feel like testing my intelligence on that cart set up.

A quarter wouldn't interest Scouts today....they were set up outside IGA Saturday so I felt obligated to support them. $25 for a box of 12 packets of microwave popcorn.

Yup, Susan had me stop and grab her "a few things" (read a YUGE list) and I didn't have any of her reusable bags. I got a couple of funny looks because I ended up packing it out in a Gander Mt duffle bag, a frame pack, and a gear bag that said Barstow Rodeo Gear in it LOL

Been using Aldi in 3 different States and every one of them were just as good if not better than other Grocers.

Aldi's is great! Keep a couple of Quarters handy in your vehicle for cart ransom, LOL, you get it back when you put the cart back. Outstanding return policy. Everything is top quality. You have to buy bags, bring your own, or collect boxes as you shop.

Had some steaks from there last week and were probably some of the best I’ve had anywhere in a while.

I have bought our Easter hams there for a couple of years now and you can't beat their price. I go once a week, I go to a city 25 miles away once a week and make it a point to shop there. Their house brand Burman is just as good as the big name brands and probably made by them. Their dairy products are cheaper than elsewhere as is their baking supplies. I always see several Mennonite ladys shopping there so that tells me something. And their Happy Harvest canned goods are as good as any. If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of Aldi's. I'll be shopping in one this afternoon.
