TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The supermarket chain Aldi officially opened Wednesday in Tupelo.

Many people braved the cold morning temperatures to be the first ones inside the store.

The business is located on North Gloster Street at the same location where Ryan’s restaurant previously stood.

The chain is famous for providing its customers with cheap, low prices for everyday items such as milk and eggs.

The store features few aisles displaying all the essentials. The business says more than 90 percent of the groceries it offers are under the Aldi brand.

The store also features the unique business practice of charging its customers for supermarket items many customers take for granted. This includes a 25-cent refundable deposit for a shopping cart.
