I heard this on the news and thought there may be a few people interested in this.

There is also a facebook group that may have some more information.  Even if we do need to take it with a grain of salt.  wink.gif  It's called Join if you want ALDI in PERTH!!!

Nope they didn't mention where on the radio, just that they may open 60 in WA. I would assume they will be placed near current Coles/Woolies stores in high traffic areas, to provide the best value opposition. If they are as good as everyone says, then I'm stoked! Bring it on biggrin.gif

I just read this

But does that marketing guy seem completely off the mark? I would of thought more the burbs and more big shops not inner city call ins.

He's right about the typical shopper though. In the UK, I'd never go for a full shop, but just bits and bobs that I knew were good value there. Then supplement with familiar brands from Sainsburys. And I think it'll be a bit of a shock for customers who don't know the layout of a store - it's not pretty.
