I went to Aligro for the first time today, to the store in Matran near Fribourg, http://map.search.ch/matran/ch.de-la-cornache-1
I agree the dry stuff was not special, but the fresh offer was astounding!
Fruit & vegetables, fresh herbs, fish, meat all reasonable prices, but the variety was amazing.
Filet of hare, whole boned leg of venison, fish paté, crab claws. When did you see ANY of those in your local Coop?
It was explained to me that on Fridays and Saturdays without the card I could not buy the special offers unless my order was over CHF 100,--
However I could usually pay cash without the card, - which I did, spending just CHF 17.75 without any penalty.
