    Default Anyone shop at Food Depot?

    Does anyone in Georgia shop at Food Depot? I have been shopping at Aldi, wonder if Food Depot would be better? I went grocery shopping today at Kroger because unfortunately, Aldi was closed for the New Year holiday. Probably spent more than I would had I shopped Aldi, but I was already out and wasn't going to come home empty handed.

    Default Anyone shop at Food Depot?

    I have shopped at both places. They are about equal as far as price goes, to me the meat is better at Aldi but Food Depot has a greater selection of product.

    thanks. Maybe next time I need a grocery shop day I can go to FD first and then shop Aldi for the meat.

    I realize this is an older thread, but I'm curious - I don't understand Food Depot.

    Is everything 10% more at check out? Or just the items labeled that it's 10% more??

    Why is it 10% at checkout and not just that price on the shelf??

    I ran into a new one to pick up a box of sandwich bags. That's all I've gotten so far - it was weird. I didn't get it.

    its supposed to be "cost plus ten percent" which is added at the checkout. This applies to all items. I agree, they should just raise the price ten percent from the start. It tricks you into thinking their prices are cheaper.
    I have found that they do not have as varied a selection as some of the other stores, so I do not shop there.
