Aldi can be pretty dire or pretty good.

There is one north of me (Uptown area of Chicawgo) that is like a _Twilight
Zone_ set. Of course it doesn't help that it's across the street from a
Salvation Army homeless mission...

Pretty rotten produce from what I've seen. From the condition of the store
I sure wouldn't buy meat there...

Friends though have gone to some of the nicer ones in the 'burbs and have
gotten some real deals on electronics and stuff, e.g. a DVD recorder for a
hundred bux...and the food is okay they say.

IIRC doesn't Aldi's parent company also own Trader Joe's...???
