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 various home goods, Easter food highlights, frozen food, children’s toys and accessories (with plenty of goodies for filling Easter baskets), gardening supplies, bedding, kitchen products, exercise gear and products for a home gym, personal care items, apparel, pet supplies, and automotive accessories.
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.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- SOHL Furniture Accent Bench, $129.99. Back in 2019, Aldi made a splash when it introduced a limited-time two-door accent cabinet. Aldi fans everywhere swooped up the small piece of furniture. Aldi brought the cabinet back a few times in different colors, and the grocer also introduced a matching accent table and a single-door accent cabinet at different times. The latest piece in this furniture collection is an accent bench, which is new to the Aldi furniture line. Read more about the bench here.
