Middle classes at Aldi

COMMENT: Bandstand event is a victim of its own success

Have your say

I’ve been reading a lot about how middle-class people have started shopping at the discount supermarket Aldi because of the recession, but to 
be honest I never believed it.

However, my mate went shopping at Aldi at the weekend and he told me that in one of the aisles they were selling venison burgers.

And they also had something called ‘balsamic glaze’.

Balsamic glaze? I don’t think you could get a 
supermarket product more middle-class than that.

It’s the sort of thing Waitrose has a whole aisle devoted to.

So, if that isn’t proof that the middle classes 
have started shopping at Aldi, I really don’t know what is!
