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 holiday hosting with barware / beverage accessories and other kitchen items, along with additional Advent calendars, Christmas decorations and related items, candles, houseplants, gift wrap and accessories, Christmas cards, toys and Christmas gifts, pet supplies, apparel, and various food highlights.
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.
