I go to one in Maribyrnong and they always charge the credit card fee. I think they also charge for the plastic bags, too. I usually go with my own bags though. I used to work as a check out chick, too, so packing them myself takes me back... :lol:

i know the aldis up here charge for the bags cos my parents sometimes shop there and so does a friend of mine. we have heaps of calico bags we just use at shopping and woolies have the cooler bags so that you can put your cold stuff in it and its still cold when you get home. and you have to put money in for the trolleys too :P

yeah thats right about the bags and the trolleys :) I bought a little chip from there a few months ago that clips onto your keys, and I use that (which is given back after each shop) instead of a $2 coin, so that comes in handy! (lol it doesnt work in the coles trolleys though I discovered doh lol) not sure if u can still buy them....I have about 90 million calico bags too kate :) They're great

i'm obviously a bit late too this discussion but anyway i'm glad i'm not the only one totally frustrated by the price of zucchini and other vegetables.. the prices have not come down here although i really hope they do.. for weeks my main vegetable was pumpkin (fried with garlic) which was just too much until i went to a bigger supermarket and got some eggplant and beans.. am really missing the staple items of broccoli etc.. hope they come down in price..

its terrible how food have been rising.. I think I've read somewhere that food generally has risen by over 10% which is way more than cpi.. plus i read in the papers that dairy products are set to go up another 25% in the next six months (unfortunately i don't think much of that price rise is going to reach the farmers)...

mandarins have been cheap at least lately and are just gorgeous!

They are I paid $1.25 for 1kg of mandarins last week. Bannanas have gone up again to 8.99Kg so i'm not buying any atm, strawberry's are 6 kg prices are still to dear.

I love Aldi I buy my milk there $2.99 for 3lt's since my family go through 4 - 5 bottle's of a cow a week, & some meat like ckn tenderloin's & breast.
