Very pleased to hear Aldi is coming to Adelaide. Whilst I make a real effort to buy locally (all my fruit, veg, meat, dairy comes from farmers markets/central markets/local grocers etc) I welcome the competition Aldi will bring to Coles and Woolworths, which in my opinion, are expensive in relation to the pretty average quality they offer.
We visit Aldi in Victoria a couple of times a year when visiting my partner's family and find it great to stock up on certain items for the pantry that are often half price or less than you'd pay in Coles/Woolies. I plan on continuing to buy fresh produce locally, but if a product is imported regardless of where I buy it, I'd rather get it much cheaper from Aldi than support the duopoly.
In todays community newspaper it reports that Aldi have revealed plans to build four stores in the southern suburbs.
The sites identified this side of the world are Seaford heights, Woodcroft, Hallett Cove and Port Noarlunga. I can't see Port Noarlunga getting one but maybe they mean Noarlunga?
They also say that the north is going to get 7 stores.
Maybe someone can list the location of these stores as the community newspaper doesn't state where they are?
It reports that the stores will create more than 1000 jobs so that's good news for South Australia.

Can't wait to see Aldi in Adelaide! Loved it back in Europe/Germany. Cheap prices, very competitive and bringing these kind of arrogant and overprized Australian supermarket chains to an end! We do it like soo_the_panda, pit stop in Melbourne & Sydney and all that fabulous chocolate etc. in our luggage.

While it will be interesting to have a look around an Aldi and see what's what I'm not sure it would become one of my regular haunts.
Woolies is US owned, Aldi is German owned, Coles is Australian owned and Foodland is South Australian owned. A such Foodies gets my business wherever possible.
