I make an Aldi run weekly, and was there last night.  They don't have everything I need, but shopping's fast and efficient with their relatively small store.  Many of their house brands are 50% cost of large supermarkets (i.e. Walmart).  Walmart's groceries are very expensive--except for their few house brand items.  Everyone's wanting the Publix to open, but they're really, really expensive.  Other than sale items and specialized deli items, I cannot afford Publix for "big groceries."

Aldi's does "inexpensive" better than anyone else in town, but Publix does "variety" better.

Right now no one in Florence carries pastrami except Wal-mart. And they don't always have it.

When Winn Dixie was here, I could always find a few "unusual" things to try.  That's where I got my first taste of Stilton cheese.  Now that Food World is in the same site, I'm lucky if I can find sliced Swiss cheese 1/3 of the times I visit.

Publix will have pastrami.  When Winn-Dixie was here, they had some excellent, very lean pastrami. The absence of a place where good pastrami can be dependably found is a certain sign of a decaying society! Zager's deli in Nashville used to have the best pastrami sandwiches in the universe. Don't know if they are still around.
