Yes. I would rather go to the most expensive supers and get decent service and foods than walk into that store ever again.

Not sure how the ones in other countries are, but the Aldis in Germany are fantastic. There is a reason why they are hugely successful and the Aldi brothers are near the top of the richest list.

The quality is generally very good (ranging from the meat to the vegetables to packaged stuff etc etc.). As previously mentioned, they tend to have weekly deals where you get high quality items for far less than you would elsewhere. In the past in Germany this has included laptop/computers, phones, ******* appliances and so on.

The best thing about the Aldi in Germany is that these 'cheap' brands are actually the exact same products as some high quality brands, just rebranded and different packaging. There are websites that have lists of the cheap Aldi brands and the equivalent 'well-known' products that people tend to rate higher (though it is the same thing!). Might be worth a look if they do the same in your country.

Overall, except for maybe wrongfully accusing it of having low quality items, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. And yeah, the checkout people are so fast, I always feel like I have to get my wallet out and pack extra fast as well.

Some of their stuff is pretty bad, but there are lots of things they do well. And for when you can't be arsed cooking, their pizza is pretty damn tasty.

I once made a comparison between tomatoes and cucumbers from Aldi, Lidl, Real, Tegut and Rewe (the main shops over here). Tegut, Real and Rewe are a bit more expensive, have decorations and whatever stores need to have to be up to NeoEvil's standards, and everything tasted and looked exactly the same.

Now Penny, THAT'S a shitty store.

Your comparison is wrong. Aldi's tomatoes aren't fresh.

There's one about 15 minutes from me. As far as I know, they're just a cheap supermarket with a lot of generic brands. I bought an Aldi brand Twix bar thing once. It was gross.

I was about to start defending Aldi.

Then I realised that I've never been to one, I'm thinking of Lidl.

YES! I hate Penny. You pay low prices and it still feels like you are being ripped off.

Seriously Neo, if you think Aldi is bad, avoid Penny at all costs.

Aldi's great, they're cheap and the stuff's easily as good as Tesco or similar supermarkets. I'd stay away from red meat, that can be a little iffy, but otherwise they're a good cheap store.

He's Dutch, I think it's the fact that Aldi's German that pisses him off most.
