Jo grabs a bargain at new Aldi store
By EMMA CORNFORD
JO Leigh was first into Grafton's new Aldi store yesterday ? and first out, with a brand new television and DVD player.
The South Grafton resident was over the moon to score herself a bargain and after loading her new television set into her car, returned to the store to do a bit of grocery shopping.
"Oh, it's great in there. They've got a lot of things," she said.
"I was even tempted to buy a new dishwasher ? but then I've got a husband and he's a good dish washer, so I didn't."
Mrs Leigh and her friend Norma Beddow were two of the 100 or so bargain hunters who lined up at the new store, waiting for the doors to open at 9am.
South Grafton retiree and keen fisherman Bob Forrest was another.
"I'm going to go and have a look at the fishing gear. I saw them advertise all those rods ... and I like a bit of fishing so I thought it couldn't hurt to have a look," he said.
Mr Forrest said he was pleased with the number of new stores opening around town.
"It's good for the town, all these new stores like Aldi and Bunnings opening up. Soon there'll probably be a Hungry Jacks and all that up as well ? it'll be good."
