I went to an Aldi grand opening at the crack of dawn! My girls and I love Aldi and I was so excited to hear there was a new one opening up near me...and by the way I am in no way affiliated with Aldi aside from being a customer...this is not a paid post or anything like that, but if you are an Aldi fan then you already know they have a cult-like following of loyal fans. (Check out the Aldi Reddit to see what I mean!) So I thought I would just share the experience because #1 it was a lot of fun, and #2 to document that I actually can get up early in the morning if the right motivation is there!
About a month or so after finding out about the new store there was a small announcement of a Grand Opening celebration in our small, local new outlet. If it would have been a widespread announcement I probably would not have gone, since I'm not a big fan of giant crowds and waiting outside in the cold for long periods of time.
But I figured that not many people would have heard about the grand opening so that put the odds in my favor! My daughter and I arrived around 7am on a cold November morning to find ten to fifteen people milling around the new Aldi's front doors.
