    Aldi = Annoying 29th Jul 19 at 1:57 PM
    Been shopping at Aldi for a couple of years now as it is about 30 - 50 % cheaper than my local Sainsbury's.
    However the Missus is getting a bit p*ssed of with their out of stocks.
    Own brand moisturising cream not being in stock for about 2 months & NO other brands available.
    Frozen Steak & Merlot meat pies 2 in a pack not stock for several months.
    Is it just my local Aldi or are they all as bad ??

    Think it's happening more and more at all the supermarkets (I'm well served locally so I visit several fairly regularly).

    Last few months I've noticed from my usual shopping routine

    Lidl - Own Brand squash always out of stock except a handful of barley water occasionally. Own Brand Condiments like Tartare Sauce have disappeared
    Tesco - Cheap plain Yoghurt has gone. Plain Pizza bases have gone.
    Aldi - Arborio Rice has gone.
    Asda - Large packs of dried pulses from Asian suppliers have gone and reduced range in smaller packs.
    Sainsburys - own brand bread has gone - except for in store bakery loaves - which are all white - no wholemeal. Meat range vastly reduced.

    I suspect it's a combination of supply problems (shelve space there and empty) and making space for other lines by removing the least profitable lines. The cynic in me notices that it's usually the cheaper options that disappear.

    The Sainsburys near my work still stocks own label bread and all instore bakery bread. It;s probably your own local store that has issues.
