They just don’t have as dense of a national footprint as other chains but they are growing.

A lot of ppl just don’t have one near by

and it's crazy cuz, buying from Whole Foods is cheaper than some Canadian grocery stores

ngl I'm a grocery store snob. location and brand specific as well

every grocery store is different even if they carry the same shit
You’d love sprouts then. It’s in that same Whole Foods genre of grocery stores, but I think they offer better value.

They are building a sprouts one exit up from my house and I know I’m going to be in there every chance I get.

I’m kind of like this.. like I’ll only buy fruit from Publix or Whole Foods

Chicken & some other meet from Aldi or Lowe’s

Now I only get steaks from the local meet market butcher

Drinks, snacks, and stuff off the shelves I’ll go to Kroger or target since they are in walking distance to me

Yes I've heard about Sprouts, def check one of those out sooner or later

Canadian grocery stores are great.. the merchandising is amazing. like really just clean lines, and clean aisles everywhere. like beautiful rows of products

Yeah see when you said Aldi and Trader Joe’s were sister stores, I honestly thought you were gonna say it was Aldi and LIDL cuz to me they are just alike

I never been in a Trader Joe’s simply because it always looks packed with people

It’s German owned. It’s literally Trader Joe’s. It was two brothers that split the company in half and one is Trader Joe’s and the other is Aldi.

ahh ok, I was doing some research after you said - do they carry the same products?

i am fascinated by grocery stores
Just realized I didn’t answer this question.

There is some overlap with some of the products between the two stores, but I don’t think Aldi sells that famous cookie butter - but I could be wrong lol

Make sure to bring an American quarter so you can get a shopping cart. You get the quarter back when you’re done.
