I love Aldi and I am so happy to be getting one about 5 minutes from my house. I have no issues with anything I've ever bought there and I personally find their produce to last longer than other stores, especially Walmart.
I think NETTO is gone from the UK, but I remember that being a horrible shop. Like stories of rats in tins of beans and a mouse being in a lettuce and nettos refunding the lettuce and giving the person a new one.
This reminds me of Eurospin around here
I think that’s pretty common line of thought here in the states. I always thought that until I met my Wife. She set me straight and I love it now. Friends still won’t go because they think it’s lower tier.Love Aldi.
It's interesting that people will label their merchandise as lower grade considering time and time again it's been proven that they have a higher quality at cheaper prices.
The wine test done recently (past year) that revealed Wine Tasters ranked some of Aldis $4 wines were as good as upscale $50+ Wines.
Edit: it was at a show https://www.newideafood.com.au/this-699-aldi-wine-has-just-been-named-the-best-in-australia
right now it's staples -> aldi, discount produce and meats: harris farms, fresh fish and very specific brands (or deli, like olives or rotissery chicken etc) coles.Totally disagree with this, and I feel like anyone who is still saying this hasn't given Aldi a proper go. Currently I'd argue Aldi, Coles and Woolies are all pretty much neck-and-neck insofar as quality, which annoyingly means if you want to get the best quality you ideally need to shop at more than one supermarket e.g. I get my dairy from Coles/Woolies, and most of my carbs and sweets from Aldi.
I mean, suppliers I know, but here they actually have a reputation to be by far the best paying employer of all the supermarket chains. Although a job there is rather stressful.
not here. Intimidation, high workpressure with entire shops only run by 2 people at times, personel reduction and increased opening hours, the list goes on.
What do they do as a company to be shitty to their employees? Compared to other retail they seem to be somewhat well paid and have good benefits. I've shopped at Aldi weekly for the past 2 years and the store I go to seems to have very little employee turnover. But maybe I've had the wrong impression.
Aldi and TJ's together constitute almost all of my family's grocery shopping; if I had to choose one, I'd go with TJ's because of their produce, dips/sauces/dressings, snacks, and frozen products, but those Aldi prices are so good.
Honestly, could be the difference between Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd. Here in Austria it's Hofer, which belongs to Aldi Süd
