I went to my local ALDI opening here in California and let me tell you, my shopping experience will never be the same. I’m use to having to decide which brand of foods will be a good choice for myself and family but after shopping at ALDI, they already figured that out for me. I have so many AWESOME things about ALDI to tell you guys and I’m so excited to share my experience.
ALDI operates more than 1,500 US stores in 34 states. More than 32 million customers each month save up to 50% on their grocery bills (Based upon a price comparison of comparable products sold at leading national retail grocery stores).
ALDI is so confident in the quality of its products, the company offers a Double Guarantee: If for any reason a customer is not 100 percent satisfied with any ALDI food product, ALDI will gladly replace the product and refund the purchase price.
ALDI was honored with 2015 Supermarket News Retail Achievement Award, recognizing the company for its ongoing business expansion and product evolution.
I LOVED it. I needed to get a few things for my kid’s school trip they were going on in a few days, So, this was a perfect time to check out the new ALDI that was opening up in my area. When my kids and I arrived, I’m used to seeing shopping carts in the parking lot, blocking parking space and hanging around the area, but, When we arrived at ALDI, I noticed I had to put a quarter into the shopping cart corral to get one and was so happy to do so because it kept the parking lot clear of shopping carts, no more shopping carts bumping into my car. Then once I was done, I can get my quarter returned once I replaced the shopping cart, I thought this was brilliant!
When we made it inside, I was expecting to see many aisles of food stocked with all kinds of different brands to choose from, but when I got there, it was a small, aisle supermarket, something I’m not used to but at the same time, was VERY happy to see, with my usual shopping time of 2 hours, I was out of their in 30 minutes! Here’s what you can expect at your local ALDI:

What to know before you go:
ALDI stores are smaller than traditional supermarkets. This gives them the opportunity to choose and test, in their ALDI Test Kitchen to make sure the food quality and taste is just as good, if not better, than the national brands. Shoppers will find fresh meat, bread, diary, produce and household items priced up to 50% less than other traditional grocery stores.
ALDI also cut down on labor costs by not paying someone to bag groceries, you can bring your own bag or you can purchase theirs.
ALDI offers its SimplyNature® line which includes USDA Certified organic and Non-GMO verified items, liveGfree gluten-free products, USDA Choice meats and NeverAny! products that are free from added antibiotics, hormones and animal by-products.
When I continued my shopping after being blown away at the small aisles, the low prices, the friendly customers service and the ALDI bags had for sell says: “This bag has skills! Used to be a water bottle, now carries food from ALDI!” It’s 60% Recycled Material and 100% Recyclable! I LOVE how customer focused ALDI is, as a company. The produce was VERY Affordable and I stocked up!!!
