Grab a quarter and your Aldi shopping bags. The popular grocery store chain is about to open up a new location in the Corridor.

If you're a fan of shopping at Aldi, then you know what makes the grocery store chain so popular. Low prices. And in this day and age of rising food costs, you need to save every penny you can. So how does Aldi do it? Food Republic reports that 90% of the products you find inside Aldi stores are private labels and much cheaper than big-name brands. You don't see many Aldi commercials on TV as the company produces very few ads. And finally, they hire a skeleton crew. Keeping a minimum number of associates is another way of keeping prices low.

Unlike other grocery stores, you always have to bag your own groceries at Aldi stores. You can purchase reusable shopping bags. And yes, a shopping cart will cost you a quarter or the kindness of a stranger who doesn't want theirs back. If you're a fan you'll soon have a new Aldi location to shop at in the Corridor!
