I waxed poetic about the new Goodwill in Tosa last month.. now it's ALDI's turn.
Both of these stores opened within months of one another. Was this by design? Whatever stars were aligned to make this happen, I don't care. All I know is that my food bill just went down by half.
Last weekend, after the grand opening, I buzzed over there to find bottles of Argentinian Malbec for $3.99, milk for $1.89 a gallon, and chocolate flavored wafter cookies for $.2.50 a can. It's not that I hadn't been to an ALDI's before, but they were always so FAR away so it didn't seem worth the drive many weekends.
Not any more. Up and down the aisles I strolled and the deals just got better and better! I never seem to have enough bags or boxes when I go though.. the other day someone "loaned" me a quarter. Last week, an old gentleman gave me a nice big box wth a smile to go with it. I was humbled.
It took Tosa a LONG, LONG, LONG time to get this store here, or so it seems, but aren't you all glad it's here now? As for the naysayers, I'm sure they'll be swayed to shop there once in a while at least, once the secret is out:
You get what you pay for and you only pay for what you can carry out the door.
