I can genuinely say that Aldi is my favourite supermarket, and disappointingly say I'm not being paid to write that.
That said, Aldi, my Twitter handle's at the bottom if you fancy sending a DM.
I also live half a mile away from one, which is apparently pretty bloody excellent because it actually increases the price of your house. (Though it doesn't really help me, cos can I fuck afford to buy a flat or house in central Manchester, so I'm pissing money down the drain on rent).
Yes, living near an Aldi makes you richer. Not Lidl, not Netto, not Fultons Foods, not even a bloody Waitrose. Nope, it's an Aldi that we all want to live near.
My Home Move has stated that houses where an Aldi that has opened up between February and August have zoomed in price in comparison to the rest of the country, to the tune of around 5k.
Chief exec. of My Home Move, Doug Crawford, had this to say: "Our research has shown a third of home movers chose their new property based on its proximity to shops and local amenities.
"As such we are not surprised that the recent popularity of Aldi, with its cheaper lines and award-winning products, has had a positive effect on the value of local homes." (Sounds like he's out for freebies, too).
"A few years ago people talked about the Waitrose effect, but today it seems home buyers are choosing to take Aldi's Swap And Save Challenge to heart."
Cheers Doug lad.
Is this proof that Aldi is not only good for your pocket when she shop there but also in general? Possibly, or perhaps other factors have come into play.
More importantly, let's all just appreciate Aldi right now in all its beauty.
