On a regular basis I buy at the local ALDI:
Bread / Toast (Daily fresh)
Beer (Maternus Pilsener)
Frozen Fish & Seafood
Irish salted Butter
Frozen Chicken Wings
Dutch Gouda Cheese
Sometimes Non-Food (Digital Pocket Camera 10MP, Kitchen-Hardware, etc...)
Never fresh Eggs, Fruits, Vegetables... (Weekly Market)
ALDI Germany North: http://www.aldi-essen.de/
P.S. The local ALDI is located in the middle of our town, no crime area here, sometimes 1-2 winos near the trolly stand, but they are harmless, waiting for a little donation, or a bottle of beer, pitiful folks...
50 % of the ALDI customers come with their bicycles, like me, using the car for short distances, for a small purchase, is not very popular here in Germany, its bicycle area here...
