Why is Aldi grocery so inexpensive? I live by one and looking at the prices left me shocked today..

They operate on a reduced staffing, no frills, self serve model. Less employees means cheaper prices. Aldi & Lidl are both very common in Europe. I used to live beside a Lidl - loved the fruit & vegetable offering. Now my local is a Safeway - the smell of sugar & processed goods when you walk down the bread aisle is wild.


I love that smell 🥺🥖

It’s all leftovers and repackaged sub-quality food that didn’t make the cut for whole foods


Not true.

What M1 said and also I forget the exact percentage but something like 80% of their products are Aldi brands. So they have a lot of power and control over the supply chain. The assortment is much more limited compared to a normal grocery store so they don’t have a lot of spoilage costs or inventory problems that add a lot of cost


Fist time going to one?



Pick up some wine. Under $10 and decent!!
