Plenty of supermarkets now are overpriced, understaffed, or just do not have products of the quality that is expected from brand stores that are reputable.  

ALDI is a famous supermarket brand that, like many European brands, has found its way to the United States. The brand was created in 1946 with ALDI’s first store opening in Essen, Germany, by two brothers, so it is an older brand. ALDI sells a variety of products but most of what they sell are foods, but they also sell other products like tupperware and outdoor decorations. 

ALDI is a very affordable store. Many of the products are of high quality for the price that they are set at. All of the items that are available at ALDI are expected to be of higher quality for a cheaper price than anywhere else you would go. One of the reasons they are able to do this is because the stores are smaller and do not have as much staff, unlike other popular brand supermarkets. 

Although ALDI has better prices and products of higher quality than other brand supermarkets, the small size of the stores and the lack of staff can make the store feel crowded and understaffed. The little amount of staff can also cause the waiting time at checkout to be much longer than it would at other stores. Especially in a time of pandemic, you would not want to be shopping in a store that is crowded and cramped, although ALDI, and many stores like, it have come up with solutions to these problems that COVID-19 has caused. 

ALDI is a store that will not disappoint, with its cheap products and high quality products, it is a one-of-a-kind supermarket. If you are willing to wait the extra minute to get your goods, then ALDI is the store for you. It is a store that is reputable and one you can count on, whether it be last-minute shopping for dinner, or just grabbing a dessert for later, ALDI has it all. Since ALDI has its roots in Germany, you will also find some European goods in the store, which are mostly German confectionaries.
