They’re exactly the same

I’m never sure which is which


#3

Lidl’s have less lighting for some reason (a good thing)


#4

neither.


#5

The shopping experience at Aldi is generally miserable but you can’t deny that they are cheap and the food is quite decent


#6

Aldi is objectively worse, but OK.


#7

I wouldn’t know. As soon as I’m inside I’ve forgotten which one Im in

Been into the one on market street in Manchester hundreds of times. No idea which one it is


#8

Lidl’s meat always looks much more appealing to me…just in general as well they have most food essentials whereas Aldi has several aisles of useless tat


#9

Loads of things I prefer in Aldi: falafel, better booze, proper Greek yogurt, those lil packets of fruit and nuts. The one in Catford is always in a terrible state though, and obviously the experience of going through the till is dreadful, but I still shop there.

For some reason I always seem to find myself in close proximity to a Lidl but never an Aldi. Think I’ve only been in the latter once. Lidl, hundreds of times.

Lidl have discontinued a couple of product lines which I always bought as well which has been an acute displeasure.

Aldi is the better store, however my local one is a Lidl. Also, I’m pretty sure the Aldis in town don’t have self service, which was somewhat of a game changer in Lidl, given the fact they only ever seem to have 4 staff in the whole store.

The Aldi on Lea Bridge Road is opening today!


#13

and they sell cycling gear


#14

Lidl is much better. Used to go to both, Aldi is shite though


#15

Yeah Aldi always have a much bigger non-food bit, nobody needs a whole aisle of drills.

Lidl is better in general because they do the world food weeks.


#16

Where?! I’ve been down Lea Bridge 3 times in the last week and haven’t seen it being built!


#17

Yep! So do Lidl I think? But their stuff ain’t quite as good.

Aldi often have massive pots of Swarfega.


#18

It’s in the old B&Q. There have been signs up for ages trumpeting today.

Ah yes next to good old Kwik Fit. Cheers for the tip off. I can only assume I missed all of those signs because I am such a conscious road user and that would’ve been rubbernecking.
