I'm new to Aldi but just realised that there's one 8 miles away (I just have to brave the Botley interchange round Oxford, argh) and finding myself unexpectedly with only one DS (other one isn't lost or anything, he's just been whisked away by compliant grandparents) I wondered if I should take this opportunity to go shopping?
So, given that they had a load of camping stuff in on thursday, how likely are they to have anything left by now? And do all Aldis have non-food stock or is it just a few?
They all stock the same items. The camping stuff does go quickly. Ring the store, when I was there last week getting my camping gear the manager was on the phone to a customer putting stuff by for them. If you do go the chairs are really good.
Well, I gave them a call and blimey, they're helpful! He says there are loads of SIMs left at Oxford, and also the £8.99 lantern, but not chairs or the table. Still, SIMs and the lantern are enough to tempt me over, so I'll go in a bit! Thanks for suggesting I call ahead - I'm getting cynical with age and just assumed nobody would be able to tell me!
Returned, bearing what feel like very comfy SIMs and an LED lantern! Also a waterproof picnic mat, a gift pack of real ale as a father's day thingy from the DSs , some other beer, a £4.99 free range chicken, tinsoftomatoescheapgnocchipestocoffee. Ahem. Never used an Aldi before. Will be back (assuming the tinned tomatoes aren't all cores'n'skin).
