Aldi's Main St
« on: October 04, 2021, 12:18:43 PM »
Hey gang, curious if anyone here shops there. I've been going to either that one or the one in Lodi and personally I like Hackensack better.
The cashiers are always super fast and efficient, prices are good too. It's a little disappointing though when I think that if on a Saturday I needed to go food shopping and maybe pickup something from Sears you can't anymore....anyway  :(

I went to the Lodi one once, didn't like it, so never bothered with the Hackensack one...............first impressions and all that.

It's too bad because it's only 3 or 4 blocks away from me.

Just curious Bob what you didn't like about it..their meat is really good and priced right. Nice big salmon filets, coffee pods pretty good too.

It was a LONG time ago. I recall not liking the whole setup and they didn't seem to have much.

It might be a whole lot better now, but nothing's pushing me there (or past those first impressions).

Yeah they didn't have a lot when they first opened (and there still is lots of items you have to go to a different place for) but as a whole I like their products and prices.

I stop at the Aldi in Hackensack, a few blocks from my home, once in a while, but don't do any serious food shopping there.

There is a limited selection, but I occasionally buy some organic produce, a salad dressing with garlic cloves in it, string cheese and Norwegian crispbread, among other items.

An example of the limited selection is organic pasta, only available in whole wheat, which is harder to cook al dente. Prices are good, but when it comes to something like maple syrup, there are no deals. From the looks of the carts I see, some families shop only at Aldi.
