Aldi's is coming!

Went to the new Aldi today after reading this thread. Very nice store. A little larger than the one in Daytona. Right behind the Burger King on the left side of US 1 as you head north (just past Red Lobster). I'll definitely start going to this one from now on (unless we get one in Palm Coast).

We had went up to the Cracker Day at the St Johns Fairgrounds and took a side trip through St Aug on the way back and stopped at Staples to pick up a case of paper, right next door was the Aldi's so I took a walk in to check it out.

Most of the prices look great but not sure if I could take all the off brands, ended up not buying anything but maybe I'll stop there again for a better look.

The pictures of the produce look good...how does the price of the produce compare with other grocery stores?

Maybe Aldi's has changed from when I went there in Illinois. Everything was on the floor in boxes. You had to bring your own containers and pack everything yourself. They didn't take coupons then. No major brands

I just moved back here from living in Europe for a few years and am so happy to see that there are Aldi`s here. The pictures were great to see. I have to get to the one in Daytona, but in Germany, that`s where I shopped all the time!

i'm glad most everyone is against Aldi's.

Please stay far, far away.

I don't mind bringing my own bags, saving money on non-branded items, and spending a refundable quarter on my shopping cart.

Please go to WalMart. Don't forget your fuzzy pink slippers and skyblue hair curlers.

Thought you might find the prices at Aldis in Cordova Spain interesting. Prices in Euro , 1 euro equals 1.17 dollars and note price per is Kilos or 2.2 lbs
I think the food industry in the USA is ripping us off.

That was interesting...

Wonder if Aldi's will be coming my way anytime soon?

They kinda sound like a Walmart, only with a conscience.

Second Aldis coming near Kohls on PCP! Yeah, driving to 100 is like crossing the ocean I'll be thrilled to have a closer Aldis option.

Hope its really a fact, like Aldi's but maybe I'm lazy but driving down to 100 and then finding nothing I went for available. Kind of like Tractor Supply advertise something on and never any left even if you come in soon as they open, excuse, someone just left bought all we had, maybe but why have to drive down to get a rain check. Any I for one will be happy to see Aldi's nearbty, in that area at least once a week.

Really, too young to live in palm coast you know what it's like driving amongst PC residents and snow birds. Every mile is a risk , I wish I had an Ace hardware on this side of 95 . It's the desertphenomenon when you have to cross a river or any major Geo marker.

Palm coast is not so tiny anymore.
I just Googled it! I didn't realize that Palm Coast alone has 86k+ people, I suppose with the surrounding small communities the population exceeds 100k. I just assumed that Palm Coast was about the size of Conway. I don't know why, I just did.

It's my opinion that the PC store smells like a rotting vegetable garden every time I go in there. I try not to go there but they do have very few good things my husband likes. All Aldies I've been to smell like a rotting garden. I don't see much quality in 90% of what the carry. The 'off brands' they carry taste like old stale tasteless food! I buy ice cream, milk, popcorn, ice cream, chili, and very few other canned goods. I refuse to touch their veggies! And to top it off your groceries get piled into the cart like they were trash by the cashier( that is if you wish to pay for a cart). I learned quick and I bring my own cloth bags for them to put my stuff in respectfully. My husband refuses to set foot in that store after the one time they opened for their grand opening. He said he about puked. Heck, 7-11's are bigger than they are. I try not to go to that place more than once a month. I would say their priorities are not in the right order.

I would love to see a Joann fabrics in Palm Harbor
I am very pleased with the Hobby Lobby that went into the old publix but we hardly ever go to the new publix, prices are much higher, produce section now more resembles the old winn Dixie blah... too many employees layout is very annoying that you must go all. The way past like 5 isles of non grocery to get to dairy on the far side. I DESPISE THE NEW STORE.

We only shop Publix for certain BOGO items. Otherwise it's Aldi, Sam's, Costco, or Wally World.

I've never detected any foul odors at Aldi. But I have detected some nasty butt juice odors @ Wally World.

As would I, wrote to them about opening a store here when we moved here (1995) they said they don't consider any area under 30,000 well where are they we certainly have that now.

Agree with you, hate the layout of the remodeled store figured I'd get use to it, but it still takes me twice as long as it use to cannot figure out the reasoning in layout in some areas, and in the past month or so seen big jump in pricing for a lot of their items, much as I dislike Walmart as long as I can arrange to get there early I'm afraid a lot of our shopping is going to be from there, do shop at Publix and was most happy to hear about Aldi putting a store closer, mostly because its the type of store where what you see today may not be there next time and having one closer is more convienent my all time favorite was Albertsons, good food, good choices and prices not bad either however, Jax is to far to go for groceries.
