Exploring Aldi

For a little over a year now, Central Florida has seen German grocery store chain enter the market. (pun intended)

Yet, yours truly has to admit that, until this morning, he had never set foot inside of one.

Mostly, that's due to the fact that there isn't one nearby ye olde abode.

But, feeling more adventuresome than usual this morning, I decided to check out the location on West 50.

Coupla notes for ye socks who haven't yet enjoyed the Aldi experience:

1. Bring a quarter. They won't let you have a shopping cart unless you give them a quarter. The good news is, you get it back IF you return the cart instead of acting like a lazy bum and leaving it to roam the parking lot.

2. Bring your own bags/boxes. If you don't, they'll charge you a small fee per bag.

3. Bring CASH (or a debit card). They do not accept personal checks or credit cards.

I wish someone had clued me in to that last bit of information before I trucked it over to Pine Hills . . . unfortunately, this resulted in my Aldi visit being a fruitless effort. (again, pun intended) Publix got my money again this week!
