The Aldi stores are much the same here when it comes to style and advice, but that's how they keep the prices down and provide significant competition, especially in the grocery line, to our two major stores Coles and Woolworths. Aldi has also had an impact on the price of electronic and electrical goods, causing some major price drops by their competitors in the budget range of gear. We buy some of our groceries from Aldi and I've bought a lot electronic gear and tools from them, and never had any issues with any of their gear.
Their warranty is also top notch and always honoured. For example, with the last Android tablet, you could try it out for 60 days and if not happy, return it for a full refund. No one else that I know of is prepared to do the same. I bought my wife a Medion laptop at least four years ago and it came with a 30 day trial and two year warranty; no other laptop manufacturer had even a two year warranty. And that laptop is still going strong.
