Shopping at Aldis’ is something I do on a regular basis. I like the Maplewood location. Between Big Bend and Hanley, parking is plenteous.
I shop at Aldis’ because of the low prices compared to Schnucks and Dierbergs. They offer a wide variety of products fresh produce, fresh meat at low prices. They carry a large selection of canned goods, and dry goods. Aldis even sale award winning wines and beer. Let not forget the everyday staples; they even have a specialty section. That has some of everything in it from house hold tools to vacuum cleaners.
I enjoy friendly conversation with the employees, and they are very helpful. Even if it is only a hand full. Based on my observation, I noticed that Aldis only have four checkout lanes. That mean it is only for employees plus the stock person. Usually all the lanes are not open; unless they get crowed or backed up. The store was designed in a box style. A person enters the store, keep straight then turn left. Keep straight then turn left, they are back at the front. Of course, the store has some middle lanes.
