no. 11 – The ALDI Episode

Heard about ALDI but aren't really sure if it's a store for you? Find out why folks are flocking to this low-price retailer.

If there’s one shopping habit that seems to separate millennials from other generations, it’s the amount of money spent on groceries. In fact, some estimates put the number that millennials spend on groceries beyond their older counterparts at nearly $2500 more per year.

While unmillennials are apparently already doing a pretty good job of cutting grocery bills in comparison, is there room for more savings? If you’ve ever shopped at an ALDI grocery store, you know the answer is yes!

In today’s episode, we’re discussing all things ALDI and taking a look at what makes this low-cost leader a nationwide grocery store success. 

In the show I interview self-proclaimed “ALDI super fan” Sally of Real Mom Nutrition. (Note: While Sally is on the advisory board for ALDI, she was not compensated for this interview.) We discuss:

    • How Sally got hooked on ALDI
    • How ALDI gives shoppers a chance to buy high-end items at low-cost prices
    • What type of quality shoppers can expect from ALDI products
  • The subtle differences shoppers need to know before they go

I close out this week’s show with a preview of an upcoming show I’ll be doing on “athleisure” clothing and specifically sharing feedback I received via Facebook on the uber popular, millennial-targeted brand, lululemon

    I’ve been hooked on them since I was a kid. My mom shopped there over 27 years ago. I grew up in Dubuque, Iowa a town filled with Germany descendants. It’s the best place!

      Wow! That’s quite a long history with ALDI. I’m jealous that I only got a chance to shop there in the last few years 🙂
