    Hi there, Im not sure if this is a silly, but. I live. In Canada I think I have to live in the states to get my groceries that cheap

    • Julie says:

      Canada and US dollars have different value, too. Many or most US stores are more expensive than Aldi. They have a lot of factors that keep prices low.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      I think you’re probably right. I’ve visited Canada a couple of times, and bought groceries there. They were much more expensive! However, I’ve only been to big cities in Canada, and in the States, the big cities are generally much more expensive. If I didn’t have Aldi, I would be paying a LOT more for these same groceries.

      Also, of course, you’d have to convert these prices into Canadian currency to make a fair comparison – and I’m sure you are much more skilled at that than me.?
