Holiday Party Shopping and Planning at ALDI

If you need delish munchies for your next holiday party, ALDI (the nation's leading low-price grocer) has got you more than covered.  Sparkling cider, check.  Festive tortilla chips, sweet potato chips and salsa, check. Holiday cookies, check. Stoneware baking dishes, mixing bowls, candles and decorations, check.

The store's helpful website provides yummy party appetizer recipes. And for your Christmas Day feast, ALDI also has a quality selection of poultry, dairy products and fresh produce.

At ALDI you pay .25 for a shopping cart and get it back when you return the cart. You can bring your own shopping bags or purchase ALDI's sturdy, reusable bags for a small fee.


Over Thanksgiving, I used a gift certificate from ALDI to shop at a market in my hometown of Baltimore City. Being the snack queen that I am, I was honestly impressed by all of the healthy and tasty options from ALDI-exclusive brands including SimplyNature (awesome soy milk), Clancy's (the chips are addictive), Nature's Nectar and Fit & Active. These brands are made by leading food producers, and more than 25 million savvy shoppers per month save without sacrificing quality thanks to the market's affordable and streamlined approach.

ALDI operates nearly 1,300 stores in 32 states.  And now that I've devoured a few of the market's top-notch snacks, I look forward to shopping at ALDI again… and again.


ALDI has a great selection of snacks and beverages, perfect for your next holiday party.

Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
