Sadly.. None here in S.E.GA

ALDI is a German company.

Another way ALDI saves us money is they do not bag,,As the cashier rings up your purchases she (or he) transfers the goods to a different cart (Already with a quarter in the lock) you bag, or box yourself (normally) Wife and I would take the Motor Home when we went shopping and simply push the cart "home" she went in and I out..Overroad door switch and handed groceries inside..Finally returning cart to store to recover a quarter...... The next customer in line got your quarter.. You got the one from the customer before you.

Really like those stores.
Yep, they were Aldi's. Now if I were a young 12-13 year old entrepreneur I'd stand outside by the cars and ask If I could help by returning the carts. I'd have been a half millionaire today.

Have you ever noticed that the cart return area is halfway across the parking lot from the handicapped parking?
They have cart corrals! Oh, wait, yes the do but so many people do not sue them. I have seen cars parked right beside a cart corral and still put the cart in front of their car. We both always push one back into the store.

Most of the folks shopping Walmart are Nascar fans. Go fast, turn left. The pit crews just cannot seem to get a new set of tires on.

Try getting knocked down by some kid running undisciplined in a store. The floors are not padded and an apology really is inadequate to an elderly person who has been injured by being knocked down.
There are known instances where an injury to an elderly person has triggered dementia. Bet an apology doesn't fix that either.

Been there--seen that.
My 90 year old father in law used to do his own shopping at the local Publix store. He couldn't walk too well so he used the motorized carts. The problem was that he is in the beginning stages of dementia and his judgment and "filters" we're impaired.
He would tear through the store yelling at little children to get out of the way! My poor niece who accompanied him could not control him.
Publix lived up to their reputation for excellent customer service. When they saw him coming in the door, one of their employees would help him do his shopping!
Now that is customer service. And yes, he doesn't drive any more.
