So, I must make another recommendation. This time it is for a store, a grocery store. This particular grocery store is called ALDI and is my favorite place to shop!! ALDI just opened in Charles Town and it is a very unique grocery store. First off you rent a cart, you stick a quarter in it and when you are done you return it and get your quarter back. Next, you bring your own bags, they have plastic and paper bags there but you have to pay like 6 cents for them. Next, you bag your own groceries. For payment they only take cash or debit cards, no checks or credit cards. And finally about 90% of what they carry is their own generic brand of food, occasionally you will see "rice crispy treats" or "colgate" toothpaste, but really EVRYTHING is generic. But they have a double money back garantee that if you don't like something they will give you your money back and replace the item (if you want). They also have weekly specials on other things, right now it is a lot of toys and some clothes, but other times it is kitchen stuff or other household items. But basically the idea is that they cut ALL overhead, so that they can give you the cheapest price on everything. Milk there is $2.29 a gallon, at Weis it is $2.99 a gallon, and all their canned goods are $o.50. I did my weekly shopping there last saturday and only spent about $60, and only had to run to walmart to get chicken and a few incidental things. Total I spent about $80 for a weeks worth of groceries. I LOVE THIS STORE!!! If you have one near you, go to it, shop it, love it!! :-)
