Here's the reason you should always go to Aldi on these two specific days
Ah, Aldi. What else I can I say about Aldi that hasn't already been said before? Delicious food, great prices, all just a short car or bus ride away. What's not to like? But in every enjoyable activity, there is - of course - room for improvement, even if that improvement is just a way of squeezing every drop of enjoyment out of it.
So while Aldi is amazing, there's ways to hack your experience to get the absolute utmost out of it. Interested? Well, why don't we dive in? If you are anything like me, you have certain days where you like to hit up the grocery store.
Some people will go after a long day at work, acutely aware they've got nothing in the fridge for dinner. Others will rock up on a Saturday or Sunday morning, braving the long lines and traffic to ensure they've got enough food to last them through the week. At Aldi, though, there remains a special day to get your shopping done, and a special reason why.
I am unsure how many of you knew this, but Aldi's main headquarters are located in Batavia, Illinois, and were you to take a trip there, you might benefit from some local knowledge from the head honchos up there. While they were more than happy to point out things like Girl Scout-esque cookies and an honest-to-God 7UP cake, it might also be interesting to learn that you should try and head to an Aldi on a Wednesday.
Why's that, you ask? Well, apparently, all those weird and wonderful innovations you all so love are, in fact, first debuted on a Wednesday. On the whole, Aldi's shelves get a nice little refresh during the middle of the week, so the mad scientists thinking up new Aldi products get to see the fruits of their labour on shelves usually on that day.
On any given Wednesday, you're likely to see around 40 to 50 additions at your local Aldi, and this weekly shelf refresh is especially important for seasonal items - like, say, back-to-school items like college dorm room decor, or lunchboxes for the little'uns. It's also when you're most likely to see test items like the organic fruit juices. What's not to like?
It's important to note, though, that like the random sporting gear you can occasionally pick up, this isn't one-size-fits all: depending on where you go, the date of this Aldi refresh may change. Legend has it that some locations will instead put out new product on Sundays instead.
So how is this poor Aldi lover to know which day to come in on? That's simple, my friends: just ask a member of Aldi staff when the Aldi Insider weekly ad comes out; that day's likely to correspond to the day when new Aldi products arrive. To that end, friends: good luck in your Aldi travails. Whether you need to make some time during the week or wake up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday, be sure to head to your local Aldi.
I guarantee you will not regret it.
