Saving money is always a great thing, especially when the cost of food continues to rise. Last year, ALDI announced price drops to help customers save money as summer approached and they've done it again this year while upping the ante.

ALDI has a goal to pass along $100 million in savings to its customers through Labor Day, so this year they are further dropping its prices on more than 250 items. They add that the price drops will nearly double the savings from last year.

“ALDI is always looking for ways to help customers save money, but with more experts warning of persistent inflation, the time was right to deliver even greater discounts on our already low prices for the second year in a row,” said Dave Rinaldo, President at ALDI U.S.

Minnesota currently has 77 ALDI stores and Wisconsin has 83, so this will certainly come as good news to a lot of people in both states.

On Which Items Have The Prices Been Reduced?

With over 250 items enjoying price reductions, it should be easy to find price drops inside an ALDI store. However, they did provide a sample of the items included, separating them into 4 categories.
