Get Excited, Discount Grocer Aldi Now Takes Credit Cards

No more dollar dollar bills needed

If you’ve ever been to an Aldi you’ve probably noticed right away that it only takes the green stuff – and by that we mean cash or debit cards. But starting today that’s all changed as the discount grocery market is now accepting plastic, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

The German chain, which has 84 stores in Florida and more than 20 in South Florida, is known for its well-priced – albeit no frills – grocery store experience with 90 percent of its items being proprietary goods that are knock offs of popular grocery store products.

The chain is also adding in more organic options to its line up while also “getting rid of added MSG, certified synthetic colors and partially hydrogenated oils from ALDI exclusive food brands.” And making check-out lanes filled with healthy goods so you won’t be tempted by the chocolate bar while you wait. Not that is a bad thing. [South Florida Business Journal]
