Discount grocery Aldi heads into wealthier areas

Are suburban consumers ready to give up the familiar grocery experience for bare-bones stores where they have to do their own bagging and leave a quarter deposit for a shopping cart?

Up until now, the German chain and competitors like Lidl and dollar stores have mostly attracted cash-strapped customers.

Aldi is going even further in appealing to upscale tastes by stocking some fancier goods, such as organic foods.
