Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi weekly ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.
This week’s theme is exercise equipment, Easter brunch highlights, stuff for kids (including plenty of Easter basket fillers), spring décor, assorted home goods and decorations, school and office supplies, kitchenware, apparel, and gardening supplies.
Aldi may still be stealth releasing some products, placing them on shelves without advertising them. This is most likely because of continuing supply chain snarls. Also, keep in mind that if you don’t see an advertised product in your local store, don’t assume your store won’t get it; it may simply be delayed.
