It has been a few weeks since I have participated in Wordless Wednesday but it has been a seriously crazy few weeks for me. A few weeks ago, I did something a little different....
ALDI Grand Opening in Georgia
Just a few days ago, several new ALDI stores opened here in Georgia. The new locations are in Roswell, Woodstock and Sandy Springs.
Have you ever been to a store opening? It is actually pretty exciting. Customers were lined up early. There were balloons and ALDI employees everywhere. Carts were free. Samples were plentiful and people were just generally excited to be there. All customers were given a reusable bag with a few samples as they left the store.
The mayor of Roswell was there to cut the ribbon:
Now let's take a look inside to see even more exciting things. The produce alone is worth coming to ALDI for but there is so much more that you will want to stay for.
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
I have some favorite foods. They are things that I buy every single time I go to the store. Chocolate is one of those things. Look at this chocolate display:
I tried the Choceur individually wrapped chocolates and YUM! We also tried the Moser-Roth chocolate bars ($1.89 per package) and for my husband who is a huge chocolate snob, this was a total win!! This is his new, favorite chocolate bar.
This is always one of my favorite parts about shopping at ALDI. The Special Buys are great deals on things that you might need for your home. For instance, I could definitely use this 4-piece outdoor furniture set from Gardenline ($189.99!).
They had many other special buys of garden stuff that I could definitely use as well. There were pots and pans. They even had a really nice looking grill and camping gear.
Check out the Special Buys on every visit!
SWITCH AND SAVE
While in the store, I had the chance to try the Clancy's Original Kettle Chips. They were being sampled on the Switch & Save table and they are over $1.20 less than their national competitor. They were delicious. I know that my family would not have known the difference and I would have saved a lot of money.
WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ALDI
They source the freshest foods from local farmers. Those tomatoes? They might have just come from the farmer right down the road.
That Greek yogurt that I eat every morning for breakfast? I just discovered it was much less expensive at ALDI as were all the dairy items I buy on a regular basis.
The cheeses….ooooh…cheese. My favorite. I found my daughter’s beloved string cheese for much cheaper and she didn't know the difference.
The meat is fresh, delicious and the best cuts. They are in leak-proof packaging and backed by that great double guarantee that says if for any reason a customer is not 100 percent satisfied with an ALDI food product, ALDI will gladly replace the product and refund the purchase price.
WHAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT ALDI
Besides all of the above, if you haven't checked ALDI out yet, you should. You just might be surprised at how much money you can save without sacrificing quality. And if you are like me, you will find some new favorites every time you go.
I was compensated for this post but the views are my own.
