Neither are Oz Aldi stores. They are supermarkets that have weekly special buys of non-supermarket goods. They seem to be on a 6 monthly cycle but some are season dependent, e.g., snowfields clothing.

The motorcycle gear specials always occur in August and has done so for the last three years. The ski gear always in June I believe.
As a supermarket the Aldi's downunder have a range of all the basics - fruit and vegetables, dairy, meat etc but a limited range of pantry items and so visiting a traditional supermarket is occasionally necessary. They also have no delicatessen or bakery departments, although they do have a range of pre-packed buns and bread.
The major difference though is their twice weekly advertised single consignment buy-ins. Every Wednesday and Saturday. Electronics, garden, homewares, TV's, bedding, tools, kitchenware, etc all extremely well priced and of reasonable quality.

Our Aldi is opposite Woolworths aka Woolies (one of the big 2 supermarket chain in Oz) in the same shopping centre. We only go to Aldi for the Wednesday and Saturday specials. Our groceries are bought at Woolies because they have all we want. If we wen to Aldi, we'd still need to cross the aisle to get the rest at Woolies.

Bicycle and Kitchen week

This Saturday the pedal pushers get a go. https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-b...t-7-september/
There may be some items of interest to motorcyclists - that LED light set for a casual addition to a crash bar, for instance. I wonder how long those lights would shine between recharges?

Yeah, I got some more of the great bike socks, balaclava and woollen undervest. Thought about the boots but no real ankle protection so didn't bother. Already got the leather jacket, the Euro winter pants and over-jacket and the gloves - all good stuff.

I have a couple of the pushbike saddle bags that I converted to fit my Givi crash bars, I got them from Ebay for a few pennies less.

The frame bags look like they could also do the job.

I was thinking the same on the push bike bags, may have a look.
Bought gloves last year and have to say, really good for the price.
