What Is Different About ALDI?

The goal of this grocery chain is to keep costs low. They also work very hard to make sure shoppers are satisfied. You do need to remember to bring a quarter to get a shopping cart. You will get that quarter back when you put the cart back in the race. This program helps to make sure the carts are not scattered all over the parking lot.

Bring Your Own Bags

You are also encouraged to bring your own shopping bags and you will bag your own groceries. The checker will scar your groceries and put them back in your cart. You will move to a bagging area and put your groceries in your own bags. You can buy bags when you check out.
