"Aldi used to be a great company to work for but they are starting to make Walmart look good and I refuse to shop at Walmart."
I hardly use Aldi or Lidl any more after I saw their disgusting overpricing on the Continent (their profiteering in Portugal, in particular, is despicable).
Don't-let-them-kill-off-the-competition! Seriously, they will run prices up and loot and pillage you at any opportunity!
Depending upon how things go, I plan to open up a wholesalers post SHTF when business reality returns (should it be possible to do so), so that small shops can get fair prices to get established.
Sorry to rain on the parade, but make no mistake, outfits like Aldi and Lidl, are very much a significant part of the problem, and I really wish they weren't.
"If we consider the mistakes in men’s disputes and notions, how great a part is owing to words, and their uncertain or mistaken significations: this we are the more carefully to be warned of, because the arts of improving it have been made the business of men’s study." John Locke.
