No first day jitters here



NOTHING was going to stop Sue Taylor from being the first in the door of Aldi when the supermarket opened yesterday, so she arrived at 6am.

And by the time the new Park Beach Plaza store opened just before 9am, about 100 people had lined up behind her, ready to grab a bargain.

The $40 kids bicycle proved a popular item, as the aisles filled up with customers, but plenty of people were there for some serious grocery shopping.

"I think it's fabulous," Jackie Court said, as she came out with a trolley full of groceries.

"This cost me $25, in another supermarket I would have paid $35 or $40, even with their sales on."

The portable DVD player, was what Charles and Wendy Russell came for, but they say they'll have a go at the groceries on a less busy day.

"We'll have to check one supermarket against the other," Mrs Russell said.

For Ms Taylor, a drink was all she needed this time, but she'll also be back soon for the weekly shopping.

"This place is great, I'll definitely shop here," she said.
