Aldi is a discount grocery store originally from Germany and has been growing fast in the United States due to its excellent prices and inventory. Aldi's stores offer a variety of store-brand and name-brand goods all at a lower price.
Part of what makes Aldi so great is the fact that so much can be found in one place. That cuts down on both time and money spent shopping.
