The grocery store revolution is continuing at the Jersey Shore. We've seen plenty of ShopRites and the bigger-name stores shut down, and the wave of Aldi and Trader Joe's and Lidl has been taking over.

Lidl has three locations in our area already, in Eatontown, Hazlet, and Lacey. The newest one will open on February 26th on Route 9 in Howell!

The store will open at 7:40am on the 26th, and the first 100 customers will get a gift card ranging from $5 to $100. Shoppers also can get free samples of Lidl products and a free Lidl reusable bag.

I shop at Aldi pretty much every week (sometimes twice a week), and I went to the Lidl in Lacey when it opened. Both are solid options for good food at a good price.
