Does shopping at Aldi/Netto/Lidl make you feel a bit depressed?

They just opened an Aldi down the road from me so I thought I'd go and have a look.
I just found it all a bit depressing. The building was brand new and shiny but it still felt like a bit of a crap jumble sale of 3rd generation food. 

Is it just me? I went in with no preconceptions as I dont think I've been in one before but I can now see where the stigma comes from, I just cant rationalise it.

    Lol!! I went to a Morrisons last week instead of Asda where I usually shop. It too is pretty new but seems to inspire a feeling of despair when you go through the doors.
    Baffling.

    It's not just you mate, I feel your pain.  Hence I never go in those places.  They feel weird as you say, although I've no doubt there are bargains to be had in them.

    any shopping makes me feel like that, Morrisons is the most tolerable in my book, there seems to be more space and less people

    I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

    i agree with the above.. morrisons always seems very well spaced out..
    there is a netto near me which i use for the necessities and some meat and eggs, and its like an episode of jeremy kyle every time i go in..

    Weirdly i find Morrissions one of the worst for being snobby-esq...???

    The Asda is above Aldi but not by too much. Ive been Aldi a few times but ive only been in work hours and in my work clothes while driving my works van! Its a toilet of nearly the highest order. Ill draw the line and say ill never go to a netto!!!!! My mate used to work as security in a Netto in liverpool and said he had the funniest months of his life in there. Scum bags by the hundred. You can tell your in a dump when they put aerial style bars on the trolleys so they cant fit through the doors... hahaha

    I shop in Asda btw, i feel its my level.

    I got caught masturbating in Aldi once.

    That made me feel kind of depressed.

    Netto depresses me a bit, but to be honest I dont really care about how the place makes me feel if it means I can go in and save a fair bit of cash

    Aldi/Lidl food tastes awful.

    Tescos just makes me want to die. I dont seem to mind Asda/Morrisons.

    Many years ago when I was poor I used to go to Kwik Save all the time, but for a "treat" every few months I'd go to Asda instead - it felt so good LOL!

    Ironically now I'm no longer poor it doesn't bother me and I go to Heron Frozen Foods, Iceland, Lidl and all the cheap shops!

    I'd actually say quick save is the worse, it's horrific.

    It's actually used as an insult amongst my wife's school pupils 
    'your mum works in Netto'
    I toyed with the idea of having a T shirt printed with that slogan.

    Tescos are very reasonable about that sort of thing.
