Overall, better quality and far less expensive. Lidl's cottage cheese for example is a hundred times better and creamier than the grocery cartels at half the price.
Lidl has duck on sale this week, fekk, we can't even get duck at the other stores.
The other biggie is Lidl has forced the big chains to carry more variety.
When I first moved here, the big stores were all fish, potatoes and sweets. 13.gif
They were offering the same fare ass the Finns had bought since the 50's fer crap sake, they had to step up to the plate and lower prices, proving competition is win win for the consumer.

Some of the cheaper no name brands here are actually preferable; maybe they have less crap in them. dunno.gif

I know my sister, who is hyperactive, will drive from no less than three stores (usually) up to five stores for separate items during a shopping run. I'm not like that, I go to one store and one store only to get everything because I have better things to do that spend a great deal of time shopping and driving around town. So, I will buy the second choice product and be done with it.

yeah but the second choice would have been lipton ice tea and i hate lipton. i like nestea. chuckle.gif

Guess what, some second choice products are better than my first choice and then become my new first choice. Experimentation and adventure...take a chance. chuckle.gif

i already tried them all that's why i'm so "awful" about it. lol.gif

Well I suppose if you have only one other choice and it wasn't to your liking, then it would be time to make a complaint to the Manager.

lol.gif this is germany... the manager wouldn't give a damn. actually ask for him and the employees would just look at you like you're crazy. nothing would happen. maybe if i really started bitching they'd call the police and the police would bring me to the next psychiatry. chuckle.gif

it's so weird to read something positive about lidl because here most people consider lidl and aldi and co as total crap. 13.gif
total culture shock. chuckle.gif

It's relative I guess. Lidl in Germany is the bomb, a six pack for the cost of a single beer here gaah.gif
We have some control freaks in charge that like to make money for the gov't and say it's health concerns and Jesus and morality. 15.gif chuckle.gif

There are ways to make a complaint that gets action. A little honey goes a long way. chuckle.gif

Here's what you can bring in tax free for personal use:

• 110 litres of beer

• 90 litres of wine (including long drinks and cider) of which 60 liters may be sparkling wine

• 20 liters of fortified wine

• 10 litres of other alcoholic beverages

Customs officials are quick to point to a few examples of what is not personal use: importing drinks to be served at one's cousin's wedding, drink to be given to a neighbour for help with a building project, or buying drink abroad to give to friends.
