This Week at Aldi: The Aldi Weekly Ad for November 16, 2022

This Week at Aldi

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 Sunday.

This week’s theme is Christmas decorations, electronics, candles and wax melts, live plants, Christmas gifts and children’s toys, kitchen gear, home goods, home improvement items, health and fitness gear, apparel, pet products, and Thanksgiving turkeys.

If you don’t see a product in your local store during the week it was advertised to hit shelves, it may simply be delayed. In our experience, delayed products usually show up by the following week.

The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:

Merry Moments Holiday Village House


  • Merry Moments Holiday Village House, $14.99 each. Choose from three buildings in this collection, including a miniature Aldi market all decorated for Christmas with a wreath on the doors, garland trim around the roof, and snow. Other buildings include an Outdoor Tree Shop and a Toy Store. These require 2 AA batteries (batteries included) and include a 6-hour on/18-hour off timer function. They’re for indoor use only, and dimensions vary. These look like they could go along with the ceramic Christmas villages many people set out every holiday season. It’s the first time we’ve seen Aldi sell something like this, but Aldi is no stranger to selling other fan merchandise such as Aldi-branded pajamas, socks, water bottles, and even play grocery stores.
