The new Aldi
There is a glitch with the system tonight and it would not let me upload the pictures I wanted to upload. The only thing I could get to work was "Upload pictures from blog." So I did that and I saw the picture up above and I posted it.
On account of you cannot have a blog post without a picture!
What I wanted to report on was, our new Albrecht Discount reopened after its remodeling. And I went to it!
It is still a work in progress. It still managed to be a bit woebegone even with its remodeling. I think it needs to fill out a bit more. I have been to Aldis in worse neighborhoods than mine and they have looked better.
Also I could not find what I was looking for. It took me forever to find coffee and when I did, they were out of the Beaumont brand, the cheap brand, that I always buy. I had to settle for the 100 Percent Colombian. Which, I do not mind trying it, because I might like it. But still.
There were no good markdowns.
The checkout was slow. Lots of people in line. O look! The blog is letting me post a picture I took.
What other pictures can I post?
I guess I was not in a big enough hurry to catch these limited-time specials.
The view across the store. You see what I mean? It still looks kind of lackluster.
Another picture I took. Photography is sure easier than sketching!
I should have taken more pictures. But once in Price-Rite I was reprimanded for taking pictures. That was funny because I was taking admiring pictures of their spice department. I love their spice department and I wanted to tell the world. Plus, how can a store tell you not to take pictures? You are allowed to take pictures.
Ever since then I err on the side of caution. I do not like conflict.
But next time I go to this Aldi I will be bold and I will take more pictures. Perhaps it will have changed!
Perhaps the Limited Time Better Hurry case will be better stocked. Either that or perhaps I will be earlier.
Perhaps the Beaumont Coffee will be in stock.
Perhaps the checkout lines will be shorter.
I cannot wait to find out!
