WACO (February 27, 2013)—Waco’s first ALDI grocery store will open to the public Thursday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Wednesday to welcome the store whose managers say they don’t match other store’s prices because that would mean raising theirs.
Many shoppers are familiar with their unique store practices that help keep their prices low.
“We keep our carts in one convenient place. You put a quarter in the cart, shop and then return the cart to get your quarter back. This helps to keep prices low because we don’t spend time retrieving carts. Also, by only accepting cash, debit and EBT cards, it helps keep our prices low,” the company’s website states.
Other ways the store cuts on costs is by allowing customers to use empty food boxes or bring their own so that the company does not spend money on bags.
The store at 1220 N. Valley Mills Drive will open Thursday at 9 a.m.
