I would imagine by now that some of my followers know how obsessed I have become with my soon-to-open Aldi.
I have been driving by the store just looking at if for months. (I drove by it yesterday!) I have been on its Facebook page almost every day. Heck, I have been bloggin about it more than anyone wants to read. LOL!
As soon as I heard that MY Aldi would be opening this Thursday, April 11, I schedule off work for that day and Friday. Thursday....just because Aldi was opening. Friday to make it a long weekend.
Then, this weekend.....heartbreak!
My Aldi's grand opening is on April 10....yes, April 10! From 11-6.
I am so sad!
What about us potential shoppers that work outside the home, Aldi? Don't you think WE would like to attend your grand opening?
I COULD take off Wednesday, too, but I try to be a good employee and give my boss at least a week's notice when I am taking off. (Unless, of course, in the case of illness.) Plus, I am really busy at work.
So, I would be taking off.
I will be missing the grand opening.
I am heartbroken.
(But I will go shopping there on Thursday! And on a positive note, I did get my invitation that includes a $5 coupon.)
