This Week at Aldi

This week’s theme is German week with a variety of German and German-inspired foods, along with assorted home goods, kitchen products, houseplants and cut flowers for Mother’s Day, gardening supplies, patio accessories and outdoor decor, apparel and accessories, kids’ toys and gear including outdoor playthings, and various food and drink highlights.
