Area shoppers came out in droves Thursday to check out the region's newest grocery store, Aldi in Lake Grove.
A district manager said the place had ben packed since its 9 a.m. ribbon cutting. Though the store is still a little thin on cashiers, he said, adding that they will hold a job fair on April 10 at the store for applicants to come in and interview. Jobs start at $12.10 an hour.
A few shoppers who asked not to be identified said they liked the new market, but Melony Reif of Smithtown said it comes down to how well you know your groceries.
"I think it's good if you know your prices," said Reif, who often does her grocery shopping at Shop Rite.
"Canteloupe for $1.29? That's a good price."
