We asked more than 3,200 Aldi shoppers what they think of its stores – find out how it stacks up against other supermarkets.

Discount supermarket Aldi has become known for its value for money and eclectic Special Buy products. But is it really any good? 

In October and November 2018, we surveyed thousands of shoppers to discover which are the best and worst supermarkets. More than 3,200 Aldi customers rated it on everything from queuing time to the quality of its food and its value for money. 

Aldi opened its first store in Germany in 1913 and entered the British market in the nineties, like fellow German retailer Lidl. Aldi is the fifth largest supermarket in the UK, ahead of Lidl, Waitrose and Iceland.

Is Aldi the UK's best supermarket?
