CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – Residents and wine connoisseurs gathered Wednesday morning as the line wrapped around a local Aldi in Chesapeake in time for its popular Advent calendars.
Aldi is ready to get everyone back in the holiday spirit with the return of its popular holiday countdown after their wine and cheese versions sold out in minutes last season.
