I’m sure many of you have already heard by now, there’s a new kid in town. Please join me in welcoming the grocery store, ALDI, to Southern California! I’m so excited for this new addition to Orange County because I’ve heard so many wonderful things and I strongly feel it is important to use only the best, high quality foods when preparing meals for the ones we love. ALDI makes it possible for families to enjoy the benefits of affordable high-quality, organic, fresh produce, and natural top choice meats and dairy with their meals.
Greetings from ALDI
One of the very first things I noticed on my maiden voyage to our new ALDI store in Anaheim was how the innovative style ALDI compared to traditional grocery shopping. Majority of the items were their own exclusive brand allowing me to save up to 50%* on some items based on price comparisons of comparable products sold at other neighboring grocery stores. The fact that premium, natural, and organic food made affordable for all enjoy is something ALDI should be very proud of accomplishing. What an amazing gift to give to our communities and families.
The layout was great, the store was clean and the service was warm and friendly. I can now see why people enjoy shopping at ALDI so much.

What to Know Before You Go…
- Bring a quarter! In order to keep costs down, ALDI does not employ staff members to retrieve grocery carts around the parking lot. Instead, you pay $0.25 for a cart, and once you load your trunk up and return the cart, you are reimbursed your quarter.
- Don’t forget your shopping bags! You can either purchase grocery bags directly from the cashier at ALDI or bring your own re-usable shopping totes.
- Cash or Plastic! It’s 2016, leave your checkbook at home.
Let’s face it, these new ALDI stores in Southern California make my quest for menu prepping a cinch with fresh, high quality, healthy and organic products. The in-store shopping experience was overall enjoyable and I’m thrilled I have somewhere to purchase high quality products at a great value! I am excited to share that ALDI has opened approximately 25 stores in the southland by July.
