If you have a friend etc who uses Lidl on a regular basis, you could
perhaps ask him to see if his local branch still has some left. My
local one did yesterday.
No such person! Lidl and Aldi are not big here. We have just had our
first Aldi open up, replacing a Co-op, and it is filled with cheap
horrid crap. The car park is almost empty now, far emptier than when
it was the Co-op.
Crikey. Doesn't sound like Aldi. A Co-op, sadly, yes. I'm old enough to
remember when they were the best value stores around.
But I don't have an Aldi close. Have only gone to one if they have
something I want.
Lidl, on the other hand, are very active in this part of London. For lots
of things they beat the supermarkets hands down. With no silly BOGOF
and/or money off your next purchase rubbish.
But more on topic for here, their 'special offers' of tools etc are second
to none value wise. Much better quality than a shed own brand stuff and
I got some wiper blades for the SD1 the other week. Had to know what I was
buying as they weren't listed for it, obviously. Got two front blades and
two rear blades for under a tenner the lot - and they appear to be as well
made as Bosch. Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if they were made by them.
