Aldi prices are excellent and its well worth trying their own brands-I have a list of items I actually prefer from Aldi but there are some items I wouldn't try again.... it's trial and error but worth the effort. Although there are fewer staff in Aldi, customer service is very good. I have returned items and received refund immediately with no issues. There are often good ideas and bargains to be had in the 'Middle Aisle' weekly specials. We have bought garden, clothes, kitchen items and all are decent quality but just don't get carried away by the prospect of a bargain. It's important to be aware of what you really do want and need! Wednesday mornings are generally a quiet time to visit. Their delivery is excellent if the item is available for that service. We have ordered bedding, clothes and, frequently, wine. Returns and refunds via store are simple for online items too.
