Aldi's produce is good quality as well as being very good value.  They may not stock as many lines as the big stores but it's fantastic for basic shopping. Those who won't shop at Aldi because it's "too down market" don't know what they're missing!

We need an Aldi in Marple.  I'd use it all the time.

Their raw meat isn't very good so they wouldn't be a threat to L'woods or Whites but a lot of their other stuff is excellent. As supermarket fruit and veg goes, Aldi is reasonably good - not my first port of call as I prefer specialist greengrocers where the choice is wider and the goods fresher, but in an emergency it's fine.

Hazel Grove and some other Aldi sites have decent sized car parks but the Glossop site is a nightmare. On Saturday you can forget it as the car park has very few spaces and the access and egress is very tight and shared with their delivery wagons at all times of the day. So as for space is concerned Chadwick Street would probably be within their footage.
Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

If iceland in marple relocated to a unit of similar size to the woodley one and had the same product range  there would be no need for another budget supermarket.

Good point but where do they go . Not in favour Alldi in marple can't see them developing Chadwick street
To expensive to do .

An Aldi in Marple would be excellent. We have started to go the store in Romiley and have been impressed by the quality and value of many of the goods on offer (although they also sell their fair share of cheap, horrible processed foods for those who can't be bothered to cook). Doubt if we would ever want to do a "full shop" at Aldi but would welcome a store that I could walk to.

A very interesting linlk - thanks Lily.  So Aldi are actively looking to open in Marple.  But as bluezorro pointed out, Aldi would probably not be interested in Chadwick Street:
the cost per sqft of the chadwick st build looks again silly.

Quite right about Aldi - their range is smaller but quality is excellent - I often shop in the Stockport store which I pass regularly. For example - Tesco posh bacon has 10% added water, Aldi posh bacon has no added water and is cheaper. For electrical goods, Aldi / Lidl have always given 2 year or even 3 year guarantees as you get in other E.E.C countries. Things are good value because Aldi don't waste money duplicating products, on Nectar / Clubcard points, OTT advertising etc.

An Aldi would hit the co-op, but possibly not other shops as their range is relatively small. You could always get some Waitrose bags from Poynton and use them in Aldi so no-one knew..

We shop at CostCo a few times a year for items like toilet paper; tin, most basic shopping that will last comes from CostCo.   Then most weeks we have a Tesco delivery – we found that the cost of our food shopping went down when we started a weakly delivery as we plan meals better.

We make our own “everyday” bread in a bread maker; milk etc lasts for a week.

Our “top up” shopping tends to be salad if we have run out and nice bread with drips for lunch at the weekend.

I have found that Aldi tends to only sell “plastic” bread and is also limited on nice dips.   I do like some of their wines and cold meats.  Also it never seems to be very pleasant with lots of children running about and long queue,   but I may have just picked bad times.

So if we are passing a Tesco we will do the “top up” there, or if we are passing a Waitrose we will shop there, otherwise we use the CoOp in Marple.    Waitrose always seems expensive, but we don’t need to buy much when we go there.   

Whenever I have an Amazon order to pickup from the CoOp I land up buying something from the CoOp.

Some people have little money so are forced to shop at the cheaper supermarket there are also forced to live in the cheaper housing.  Along with most people in Marple we have the option to choose where we shop.

Before we started to use CostCo we used to buy a lot from Tesco when it was on offer, stocking up enough to last until the next offer, with CostCo we do not have to play these games.

Where do you shop ringi?

Does the supermarket you go to reflect who you are or where your house is?

This is so true.  I would love one in Marple as well.

Me too, we do 98% of our shopping in Aldi and have done so since the first one opened nearby. Our dog won't eat their dog food but then she is a very fussy dog, I seem to remember somebody saying their cat does not like their cat food either.

I don’t know, I think the housing may be too up market for Aldi’s target customers.

How can you suggest that certain housing areas are too upmarket for aldi?
Have you not seen the customers that use them?

Came past the site where the Dialstone Centre is being demolished and was amazed how large it is.  If this site is scheduled for housing, then Aldi have made a good move as there will be hundreds of people within walking distance of this new store.

I don’t know, I think the housing may be too up market for Aldi’s target customers, but they will get some trade from there.
