    There appears to be a limited amount of items from Germany in the grocery line. I would also like to wine and beer available in Pennsylvania Aldi Stores. I like Aldi and enjoy shopping at the stores.

      Hi Mace – Please note that due to some state and local laws, not all ALDI locations sell wine and beer. Rest assured that we want to provide each ALDI store with our complete product line and will continue to work to achieve this. If a particular location sells wine or beer, an icon will appear in the “Extras” column of our store locator here: http://bit.ly/1hXb8ek

    I NOTED THAT ON YOUR YOUTUBE SITE YOU PRESENTED A FOOD PROCESSOR NAMED AMBIANO. AFTER HAVING SEVERAL GASTIC SURGERIES I CANNOT DIGEST REGULAR FOODS OR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. YET I NEED THEM MORE DESPERATELY NOW THAN EVER. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE THIS ITEM AT STORES IN MY AREA. IS IT POSSIBLE TO PURCHASE IT EITHER FROM YOUR DISTRIBUTION CENTER OR SHIPPED TO A LOCAL STORE?. I LIVE IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN.
