    So they are like IGAs? Smaller and bigger stores? I thought they were big warehouse places.

    I just wanna try their nappies. Everyone raves about them and I'm willing to try anything to stop over night leaks lol.
    Doubt it'll happen any time soon though.

    They're nothing like IGA.

    They are not huge because they don't have a lot of range - it's about 95% house brand. So imagine a coles store that only sold coles brand, eg. Remove all the Kelloggs, etc and think how much shelf space. They do a generic version of most popular items. They do have some door busting non-food bargains at times but generally you have to get there the day they get them in or miss out.

    Considering how much coles and wolies are pushing their home brands I think it will be all good for IGA's as they're increasingly becoming the only place you can get some brands.

    The best description I heard of Aldi was that they stock 20% of the products (compared to woollies, iga)because that's where 80% of the profit is.
    Nappies are ok but no better than any other IMO.
    Most products are cheap imports and profits go OS. All the bargain variety products are 'get what you pay for' quality but as long as you know that and are fine with it.
    Oh and you pay for each bag/bring your own and pack your own bags. Pay a surcharge for using cards. Pay deposit for trolley and return it yourself.

    I will get a full description of what it is from a friend who knows a lot about the stores. From what I know you can get things like TVs from the store too.
