Graham and Kay Kither were delighted to take advantage of the opening specials, which include retro style bikes for $85 and a range of children's toys.

Angela from Minyama even said another shopper had tried to take a bike out of her hand as she was taking it out of the store. 

"This is our second trip in," she said. 

"We only came for one (bike) but figured we may as well get one for each of us so we ended up with three. 

"I'm not normally an Aldi shopper but it's been quite good. 

"It's been awesome actually." 

 

The store opened at 8.30 this morning at 30 Flinders Lane Sunshine Cove, behind the Joyce Mayne homemaker centre.
