    ALDI's in Johnstown Taking a Break

    As of tomorrow the 20th until Monday the 27th of March my favorite grocery store, ALDI’s in Johnstown will be closed for that whole week.  I’ve gotten to be pretty friendly with Steve the manager there and he tells me they will be revamping all the displays and coolers. 

    Now you know I go in every week to get fresh roses usually on Tuesday’s, but they come in fresh on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  I asked Steve at the Johnstown ALDI’s on what days does the Amsterdam ALDI’s store get their flower delivery.  He called down there and found out it is the same days as up here.  The Amsterdam ALDI’s is located on Route 30 almost across the street from Hannaford down there. 

    I have found some incredible deals at ALDI’s lately.  I’ve been getting this frozen Mexican dinner which consists of an enchilada, tamale, rice and beans.  I’ve gotten Herman and Terry liking them too.  Of course there is always good deals at ALDI’s.  They’ve recently been getting in extraordinary nice fruits.  I’m in the habit of having fresh fruit with my breakfast every day.  Specifically honey dew melon, cantaloupe, and watermelon.  Additionally I love strawberries to pieces and I’m happy to report they are carrying them too now. 

    So I hope it won’t be too weird to go to the new ALDI’s in Amsterdam.  I honestly don’t think it will be.  But you know how it is trying new things. 

    I’m really curious to check out the face lift the ALDI’s in Johnstown will get.  Fortunately I won’t have to wait too long to find out.  According to Steve the Amsterdam ALDI’s may be getting some of the Johnstown ALDI’s help for that week. 

    I was speaking to my Mom last week on a day I was going to get roses. 

    She said there is an ALDI’s near her in Cleveland, Ohio, but she had never been to it.  And do I recommend it?  Well I couldn’t recommend it enough.  So hopefully she’ll go there.  I sure hope they have roses too!  I think I might have gotten my love of roses from my Mom.
