Cheap shopping for cheap shoppers

Just announced: on March 19, German-owned discount grocer Aldi'll begin blitzkrieging Texas with 11 stores spread amongst Dallas, FW, Garland/Mesquite, and...Pantego! The operation slashes up to half off supermarket prices via Euro-style practices: stocking only best-selling items, offering weekly random "Special Buys", and implementing supposedly theft-preventing quarter deposits on shopping carts and a bring-your-own-bag policy, though they sell paper ones for 5-cents per, giving you the privilege of paying to get sacked.
