Usually good for a cheap bottle of good vino..... Or a crowd of youths hanging outside (in the uk!)
When did the SA law change to allow alcohol being sold in supermarkets? The price of wine in UK supermarkets is not relevant here.
if you all buy all the cheap imports, the government will get less GST, then the country suffers. I just hope those of you that hunt the cheap imports aren't the ones who complain that your services drop and roads etc aren't fixed.
Well it looks like we're all jumping the gun anyway. I contacted Aldi this morning and whilst they confirm they will be coming to SA in the "next few years", they have NO specific locations as yet :(

Regarding Aldi, we didn't use it regularly in the UK but did get a bit excited at the thought of wandering round one recently that was near to the Sydney apartment we stayed in (we have a low excitement threshold). Got to say we left it a bit deflated and headed to the Coles over the road ...
We use Aldi in Brisbane, though we do not do a whole shop there as we have preferences for certain products rather than Aldi's or other supermarkets brands. Basically we try something, if we like it we get it, but their stuff does change so we stop getting it, like their pork sausages, baked beans, and vintage cheese all changed taste, so out they've gone. Overall they are cheaper and have some good specials but we only buy what we need and never buy something that we don't need because its cheap or on special as that's not saving money really, is it!
They do lose a lot of income from the small shop (bread and milk brigade) because of how they man the tills, myself and other have just left stuff near the till and walked out, I have also, and most likely others have too, looked through the window saw the queues and then gone elsewhere.
Enjoy it when it gets there and support them as all their fruit, veg and meat is supposed to be Aussie.
They've been on their way here 'in the next few years' for at least the last five years that I'm aware of ...
You move country you move shopping experiences. If you like what you had you stay put!!
