The Sunday afternoon that we drove into Columbia, Louise got all excited when she saw one of her favorite grocery stores from Europe…”ALDI”. “Aldi is here !!!” Unfortunately it took a week before we got back there. This is one of the stores that in order to get a shopping cart, you have to insert a quarter. In Europe we had to insert a Euro (approx: $1.35). One of the advantages for the store is that in order to get your deposit back you have to take your cart back up to the store and not leave it someplace in the parking lot. We always found good values at Aldi Europe, and again we found values we couldn’t pass here as well.
