Love ALDI. Mine is very close to a large fresh food market, and while the market can be better quality and slightly cheaper at the markets I'm happy to go to Aldi to get everything in one hit in under 30 minutes. The market plus going to a supermarket for the extras took me 2 or 3 times that long. Most of the time I find the quality more than acceptable. Not A+ grade but pretty damn good. Yes, these are a few things that you just can't get there, or that I prefer other brands for, but the vast bulk of our weekly shop I'll do at Aldi and as PP said, it saves me up to $100 on shopping at Coles or Woolies. When I was shopping at the markets I'd save even more than that, but the convenience of getting almost everything in one hit won me over.
I love the checkout- it's like an extreme sport! 😂
