Haha. I would shop there for myself. But i am a bit of a pig.
Gonna have to try the wagyu at some point!
the two bags of bagels i bought are pretty frigging awesome though. i'll need to go there sometime when its less busy (read: never) and have a proper suss-out of whats good there.
i was seriously disappointed to find no doctor pepper.
Unless they have some long use by/best before dates.
Or you have a big freezer.
Sure, but some food just does not really keep, even in a freezer.
Costco reminds me of Walmart except at Walmart you don't get the 'Greeter' chasing you and yelling 'You can't shop here if you're not a member!!!"
A simple, "feel free to browse around but if you want to buy anything, you must become a member" would have come off a lot more welcoming.
Their hot dog & bottomless soda combo is pretty decent at $1.99 & their pizza slice for $2.99 is about half the size of a whole Dominos pizza
Are you allowed to browse for free though? I don't know. I know apparently they let people in to look after they opened. But i don't know if that's a permanent thing or not?
I don't know either. I didn't ask about the browsing restrictions as I wanted to get away from the Nazi at the entrance.
I've only been once and that was just for a browse and to buy from the restaurant (they didn't ask for your membership card etc).
I didn't really see much value in getting membership due to the location but will once they open up one of the other stores they're planning. Also, the membership lady was pretty rude too. I simply asked her, besides the $5 per year saving, is there any difference in memberships (business or personal). She then went on a rant about how I must only buy pallett loads of goods as a business and I must have business identification on hand so I can save $5 per year. The MOQ I'm not so sure about, a quick skim over their website says bulk orders are optional.
I wonder how long it'll take for Lidl to make its way over here?
Hopefully not the ~15 years it's taken Aldi...
SMH apparently reporting that Lidl actually have no plans to enter Australia anyway, Herald Sun jumping the gun a bit
utterly ridiculous that Aldi still haven't opened up shop here - toured three of them on the drive back from Melbourne over the Queens Birthday long weekend
Went to TTP the other day and they'd turned the car park ramp I intended to use in to a construction site!
But all was forgiven when I saw why.
Was surprised to come back from holiday and find that too. Looks like there's going to be no effort made to integrate it with the existing shopping centre.
So long as the entrance is on the same side as the Coles it'll be OK.
Shame the GFC nixed the TTP upgrade Westfield had planned.
Agreed. Could've used a makeover on the outside - it's a depressingly ugly building.
Pffft, TTP.....they may as well have put it at Whyalla.
Is that really where their target demographic is?
Er, yes? Where were you expecting them to put it, Burnside?They're putting them in at Gilles Plains, TTP, St Agnes and Golden Grove, which are all relatively close - especially TTP and St Agnes, which aren't even 3km apart.
welcome to every suburban shopping mall ever.
bit of a dumb question - of course their target market is in the outer suburbs. same reason why rite price have most of their shops further out from the CBD (notable exception is the prospect store - which is so close to my house, for which I am incredibly grateful).
closest Aldis to the city are apparently going to be in Kilburn (most likely in that new development being wedged between the bunnings and Churchill centre on Churchill road) and somewhere in hawthorn (which is more of a hoity-toity suburb, maybe more to your liking Chilled).
Yeah that would be better
Actually, just thinking about it... not convinced. There isn't much parking left now in that central section, so it'll have to go through a pedestrian crossing to the section closer to North East Rd which is usually full of idiots who just use it as private parking so they can get on the O-Bahn and go to the city.
