    The first time I went to Aldi I was in awe, spent three hours in wonderland! Cannot justify shopping anywhere else even though it’s out of my way. Waiting for a store in orange park.

    My second request. Aldi — I miss you – can’t find one closer than 30 plus miles away. Please please consider opening an Aldi in the Ft Myers/Cape Coral area. I travel once a month to the Aldis in Port Charlotte and North Port, Thank you.

    Please I am asking you stop selling fruit that has wax and grapes treated with sulphites. They cause terrible allergies. I have called and written your offices before but was ignored. People are trusting Aldi with their health, you should stop selling frutis with wax or sulphites.
    Thank you
