What’s the hype with Aldi? Just went for the first time and don’t get it...cheap yes but quality was awful.

What’s y’all’s beef with Aldi’s? If you’re buying store brands, they’re better than Walmart’s great value or any of the other basic generic brands out there. I go there at least once a week to stock up my pantry.


Pwc1, Aldi and Trader Joe are two different companies own by different companies


They are cousins but operate distinctly: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldi

The quality of the Aldi near me is top tier maybe it’s your specific location


Went once, never again


Same. I went once. Quality seemed sub par. Never went back.


suburbs have way better produce than city aldi


Never been, not recommended?

All I know is they are owned by the same parent company that owns Trader Joe’s. I went there the day before lockdown right after getting back from travel because the sties were closed and there wasn’t a lot going on there

See my reply below, they are not own by same parent.


European model. You pack your stuff, no bags, limited brands, lot of their own brand products …. with this they are able to control the cost.

Cheap wine and cheese.

You had me at wine and cheese

Yeah, not to knock on Aldi but six figure income customers is not really the segment they’re going for.

I loved Aldi when I was making $4.25/hr, and I love Aldi now. Their organic produce selection is a great value.

Same for me. I hear quality varies a lot from store to store so maybe try a different location? I think the only thing I ever got there was prosciutto and it was tasty and cheap

Cheaper for basic staples. We get fruits veggies rice etc there but Whole Foods, Trader joes or giant eagle for meat and other speciality items

Their half gallon organic milk is almost half the price of the organic milk at the mainstream supermarkets. Some of their other stuff is questionable, I really only go once in a blue moon, but you can definitely save a lot if you can get over the brands. Also since the pandemic, I’m spending way more on groceries by using Shipt… I rarely step foot inside a supermarket now 😬

We don't have published comp bands and I know there is some pay disparity between the two locations.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
