    Is anyone stigmatised for carrying ALDA/LIDL shopping bags, especially in school, by your mates or people who give you weird stares.

    People in my area, and in many other NW areas, are ALDI/LIDLphobic.

    Weird. But why?

    Lidl is fantastic. Those who stigmatise Lidl have more money than sense.

    Aldi is better than Lidl, as they make up random english brandnames for their German products, whilst Lidl don' bother!

    When I was younger it would have bothered me, now, as a student, cheaper = better.

    Lidl/Aldiphobics have obviously never tried their chocolate or ice cream. They are SO missing out.. but hey, all the more for me.

    No way, in fact most people I know would wonder why you were bothering with the Tesco metro near uni, which is fairly expensive in comparison to the lidl almost next door

    The beauty of the free market my friend.

    But anyway, most ALDI/LIDLphobes in my area used to be aged around fourteen or under, and pick on other children for the sake of it.

    People think that quality and price are directly proportional. In some cases, this may be true, but in Lidl's case, it certainly is not. I have never been to Aldi so don't know about it.

    Lidl has many interesting foods that you don't get in normal supermarkets.

    Also, lidl is not laid out like a normal supermarket. Stuff is just piled on top of each other, the stores are smaller, you don't get 50 types of cheddar cheese, you get one. The ailses are narrower.

    The staff in Lidl are none existant. Their are no hand baskets, I believe this is company policy. And it's german, and some people still have racist ideas about german = nazi.

    I can cope with no baskets and no staff because of the low price. I think lidl is great.

    Not that I've noticed. Their anti-pasta stuff is amazing and a 1/3 of the price of the other supermarkets.

    It was the same when I was at school (cheshire). If you went to school with an aldi/lidl/asda/tesco/safeway bag you got laughed at and teased. Sainsburys was the only acceptable bag to have (as there was no waitrose nearby!).

    Very mad. But I have still never been to aldi or lidl. I used to like the netto adverts, but never went there, and all the local branches (when I lived in yorkshire) were closed down
