Want to argue about politics? Healthcare reform? Taxes? Governments? You've come to the right place!

Try to keep it civil though. The rules still apply here.

    Dairy is almost always in the back corner furthest from the entrance. They want to make people who came in for just some milk go through the whole store first.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      One of the reasons I prefer Aldi to any other store, besides their low(er) prices, is they are small and have a very limited selection of items, so you're not having to hunt through a dozen different brands of the same product to find the best price. My shopping trips are often less than 15 minutes, including checkout.

        I've been hitting the dollar stores for more and more groceries. I can get bread that's between three and five dollars at Kroger and Walmart for a $1.25. Generally, you only have a week on the sell by date instead of the usual two, but I tend to be done before then anyway.

              (But it varies slightly in any particular county, city, or other entities - State Sales tax is 6.25%, but those other agencies can add as much as 2% more)
              A bit higher than mine (7%). I have never heard of being charged county or city sales tax on items. We only get charged the state sales tax. Except on groceries, there is no sales tax on groceries.

                It used to be that stores would honor the price (within reason) but not so much anymore.

                  That's what I've traditionally liked about them; in most cases, I just buy the store brand anyway, so it just simplifies the process. However, Aldi has become a lot less competitive price-wise in the last couple of years so we've been going with Lidl, the other German company.

                    Wait! You want Limited Selection in your grocery store? What are you a socialist? What did you do with Mountain Man? How did you hack his account? Go back to Venezuela, commie!!

                      I wasn't aware that only socialists shop on Aldi. I'm going to have to change my buying habits.

                        I don't know who else does this besides Wal-Mart and Food Lion (southeast only AFAIK), but I appreciate stores that print calculations of the per unit cost, which saves me from having to do math on the spot.

                          I do like that, though it's annoying when similar items have incompatible units.

                            It's all rolled into one "sales tax", printed on the receipt as "sales tax". But it does, indeed, vary.
                            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                              Kroger does it. And I think Ingles as well.
