I have nothing but praise for Aldis. No I am not an employee but an old WWII veteran who was raised by the old school teachings.--ie., be conservative and spend wisely.
Learned these traits during the Greart Depression. I have never had a bad buy at Aldis. I'm very pleased to deposit a quarter, this very much assures me that customers will return their carts and not have them banging into my car.
You can't beat their chocolate candy selections, most are imported from Austria and Belgium. My only complaint is they do not have enough cashiers.
