SAN FRANCISCO, CA (KRON) – Tis the season to buy Aldi’s wine advent calendar!
Aldi’s wine advent calendars were released Wednesday, and demand seems to be high this year.
According to workers at the Westerville Aldi, people began lining up at 7am for the store’s 9am opening to purchase the calendar. Within five minutes, they were sold out.
The supermarket chain first debuted its calendars in the UK last year and it was such a success, they decided to expand to US markets this fall.
The advent calendar costs $69.99 and comes with 24 mini bottles of red, white, and bubbly wine for the first 24 days of December.
Aldi is also offering a new cheese advent calendar for $12.99, which will include 24 mini pieces of imported cheese.
Both calendars were made available at Aldi stores starting Nov. 7.
