At the end of July, Old Town got a new option for grocery shopping when Aldi opened on West Division. Just a couple of blocks from Clark/Division’s Red Line station, the grocery store is conveniently located if you’re hopping back on the L—and has ample parking in an underground parking garage if you’re driving.
The grocery store is fully stocked with everything you need to fill your fridge, freezer, and pantry, and it has plans to add wine and beer to the mix in the coming weeks. What’s more, this popular chain of supermarkets is known for its impressively low prices on everything from fresh produce to packaged lunch meats. Start in the snack section and grab everything from pretzels to dried fruit, then move onto the fruits and veggies—where organic options abound. Don’t miss the specialty items in the seasonally changing aisle of Aldi Finds, and stock up on staples like eggs, milk, and frozen veggies, as well.
