  1. I've always heard Aldis has a great price on their canned veggies. How much does their canned vegetables run?

    1. I buy their canned tomatoes...usually 59 cents for diced. 89 or 99 for large cans of crushed tomato. I don't know about their peas, corn, beans, etc since I buy frozen.

  2. The latter is a very fancy version of Ace Hardware in the US. The one I have been to is a short of combination of Ace, Walmart, and Target. Marc Jacobs
