    I was out of town during the soft opening, but stopped in after the rain stopped on Saturday. Got broccoli, stoplight peppers, hearts of romain lettuce, english cucumbers, and 10lbs of potatoes for less than $8! It is a really nice store; much bigger and brighter than the one at US 1/401 split.

    WooHoo, just love those Aldi produce prices!! Was there for the "soft" grand opening and just saw myself on your video :-) - didn't realize it at the time, but did see that someone (didn't know who) was videoing after I had about finished my shopping. I basically go just for the produce, but did pick up 5 beautiful tea roses for $4.99 ea. So glad they're in WF!!

    My thanks to Belinda for agreeing to be interviewsd! She did a great job!

    Mom2two - I spoke with the Aldi District folks at the Wake Forest opening and they indicated that they have looked at Garner more than once and can't seem to find the right property. I encouraged them to come to the 40/42 area across from the Lowes Foods at 42 and 50, but the Fuquay Aldi manager was not happy about that one - she said it was too close to her store.

    I agree with you. It is absolutely time that Harris Teeter and Aldi consider the Garner and 404/42 areas.

    I love their milk price! It was 2.89! It is actually good and the one I bought said it had no hormones in it

    I was so happy to find sugar-free french vanilla coffee creamer here for $1.99 each. Even store brand at the other stores and on sale is at least $2.99. So happy! Love Aldi's.

    boo hoo hoo. Once again, Garner is neglected. Happy for Wake Forest, but sure wish Garner would fit on Aldi's radar.
