Aldi History

Aldi can trace its roots back to Karl and Theo Albrecht’s mother who opened a small store near Essen.  The Albrecht brothers took over the business in 1946.  By 1950, they had 13 stores.

In 1960, the brothers split the chain over an argument on whether they should sell cigarettes at the checkout.  They owned 300 stores at the time.

In 1962, the name Aldi was adopted which is short for Albrecht-Diskount.

The company expanded internationally in the 1970s and 80s.  The first US location was opened in 1976.

In 1993, the Albrecht brothers retired and donated most of their wealth to charitable foundations.

Today, Aldi is one of the largest discount supermarket chains in the world.  There are currently over 9,200 locations worldwide.  1200 of those are US locations.  The company operates as two divisions: Aldi Nord and Aldi Sud.

I love Aldi and have never had a one complaint until recently. I’ve been shopping at Aldi
for quite awhile now, I live in Saratoga Springs, NY. And I shop at the Aldi in Ballston Spa, next town over. I purchased chicken wings and thighs and froze them when I got home. I was going to have the wings and when I was preparing them there were feathers on the wings as well as the thighs which I pulled out but ended up throwing them away. This is really just an FYI, so you check out your venders…I probably won’t by your chicken anymore.
Thanks for listening…

AS OF TODAY, MY FRIENDS, MY FAMILY AND MYSELF WILL NO LONGER BE SHOPPING AT ALDIS. (which is a shame considering we’ve been loyal customers for years.) Today me and my 4 year old son went grocery shopping and while shopping, he was playing with a toy train that he had got for his birthday. He was making train whistle noises while I was shopping. He was not yelling, screaming or causing a scene. But apparently that was not okay for the cashier because when we approached her counter, she looked up and said, “that’s really annoying.” I was in total disbelief so I replied by saying, “are you serious? He’s 4!” She then proceeded to tell me that “there are 50 million people shopping in this store and not one of them wants to hear from me or my asshole child.” She also said he was rude, inconsiderate, and had no manners. (Along with many other things.) She informed me that I don’t know how to raise my child and she knows he’s going to end up in jail when he’s older because I don’t discipline him. She also explained to me that I’m what’s wrong with the world because I allow my child to do whatever he wants. (With foul language. So foul that my 4 year old is playing with his pretend phone saying, “mommy its the cashier and she said f*ck you.” I will not support a business that employs such hateful people. Since when did a 4 year old pretending to blow a train whistle become so wrong? I am beyond disgusted and my heart aches for the other families who shop there with special needs children.

Christin- it is unbelievable that this happened HOWEVER do not blame Aldi. I am sure that had no idea she would do this. Instead of boycotting them, bring this to the attention of personnel in their corporate office and get this woman OUT OF THAT STORE so she doesn’t do it do another parent and child. She shouldn’t be in a job with public contact. I am sorry that this happened to you, please don’t allow it to happen to another family.


Jane November 8, 2014 at 9:23 pm

There’s always two sides to every story. If so, that cashier was out of her mind. And, please keep track of your children.

The new two in one patent pending Detail toilet brush, is sure to make the head of every household very happy. This brush with a “Made in America” tag will enable the user to be able to clean around the seat hinges and other, hard to get at areas of the toil, so much easieret

Love your stores. Brilliant business model. In fact, we need one badly in Brunswick MD. As this is close to your distribution hub in Frederick Md, should be doable. Get your property and site locators headed to Brunswick MD, please.

Dunstan Girton. June 19, 2014 at 9:58 pm

It took me more than 6 months to make a complaint as I could not find who I can send it to.my grandson,Aaron Girton was selected to work in Aldi after many interviews.He was working at Aldi Supermarket at Hampton Park.3976.Melbourne.Australia.He had almost completed 3 months of his tenure & had a very minor accident,He was off work for a few days & when he did get back & work for another couple of days when he was called to the office & told that he is no longer needed.by the Area Manager,Steve Lemmons,even though the store manager,Adam Brownley liked his work.The excuse was that he was a bit slow in loading shelves etc but he was really very fast at the checkout.He was also given his schedule to work for the following week, when on Monday week he went for work & was given the bad news which really hurt him.He loved working at Aldi & every employee at the store was very disappointed to hear of his dismal.They all summised that it was due to his minor accident & that he would cost Aldi in the future.He is a very brilliant person & is in his 3rd year at university doing courses in Computer Programming & Animation.He would very much like to again work at Aldi,preferably at a store close to home at the Eden Rise store at Narre Warren South.3805..Melbourne.Australia.With a letter from your esteemed office for a similar position on a part time basis.Please look into this issue & will expect a favourable reply from you soon.

I think aldi is a great grocery store the only bad thing is that you have to travel just to get to a aldi we need a aldi in odenton md so many people would shop there just a thought aldi

We was in Germany last Summer and was so surprised to see a Aldi store in Munnich, Germany. They had several Gluten Free items on their selves, including Gluten Free bread. It was a life saver for me, as wasn’t sure what I was going to eat for 3 weeks. Our store in Marshalltown, Iowa just started having Gluten Free items, but don’t have any bread products. Would they be stocking any soon? Gluten Free fan!

Dear Sir and Madam,
I recently applied for a Purchasing Assistant position in your corporate office in Batavia IL. Regarding the posting I applied for I meet all the necessary skills, experience, and education. I’d very much like to work for your company (long term); I grew up shopping at Aldi, and spent most of my work-life as a Perishable Material Purchaser.

I’d like to know what exactly Aldi looks for in (A) A Purchasing Assist. and (B) A model employee. I want to reflect my desire, experience, and company knowledge as best I can with my interviewers.

Thank you for your time.


Cathy Voss May 17, 2014 at 4:24 pm

wife & I VISITED YOUR BELLE VERNON store and found most of your produce was from Mexico.
We don’t trust Mexican produce as they have no effective agricultural controls.
We enjoyed shopping ALDI store but will only buy produce not from Mexico.
Thank you for your intrest in your customers.

I would like to know if the Living Art Keramik-Figuren “Ostern” that I bought yesterday are dangerous. I bought 2 boxes, one for myself and one for my daughter. When I opened them the chickens look lovely, but later there was a strange smell which I traced to the wooden case and Contents. I threw These out and thought everything would be ok but the smell was still there. I am not sure what is inside the chickens but if you smell the underside of the pottery chickens you will find a very offensive chemical smell. I had a dreadful headache yesterday because of this smell. Please, please, please tell me if the chickens are dangerous or not.

I have tried everywhere to find an e.mail address to get in touch with Aldi Nord, Germany but to no avail. Good on adverts bad on giving contact Details. Thank you.

I bought a bag of Bakers Corner Milk Chocolate Morsels to make fudge for Christmas. When I poured the chips into the batter it turned to liquid. I poured it into a bowl and the next morning I scraped off an inch of grease, It ruined my fudge and presents for family. I am out the expense of all the ingredients, my time etc. This should be taken off the shelf. I am going to go public if it isn’t. No one should put this all natural product in their bodies. All natural grease is what I call it.
Dissatified customer


Common Sense September 22, 2014 at 7:23 pm

Idiot, it’s not Aldi’s fault you’re a bad baker. Typical stupid old woman, you ruined your food so you want to blame the chocolate chips.


Dale February 15, 2014 at 2:10 pm

Hi there,

Could you please, please come to New Zealand with your stores. You are doing well already in Australia and I am convinced you will do well here as New Zealanders are regarded as the most price sensitive shoppers in the world. We are being ripped off here by two dominant players in the supermarket sector and they need a reality check. Could you please give them one. I shopped at Aldi when I lived in Germany and also in Australia. My sister now lives in Australia and she loves Aldi too. Thanks Aldi for your great products and prices! Regards, Dale


Cora McCarver February 4, 2014 at 3:20 pm

I love shopping at your store, but please give your checkout employees instruction to be gentle on putting those groceries back in the cart after they scanned them. I worked hard for my money and I do not expect my loaf of bread smashed, bag of sugar and flour busted.

I used to live in Illinois and shopped at Aldi’s store in Vandalia , Ill. I loved your store. Now I have been living in Moore Haven, Fla for over fourteen years and we had one store here that closed, and another man opened it with an IGA Store and his prices were so high no one would shop there. We have a Dollar Store that does tremendous business, because there is no store here. We are a small community but far from other towns. We are on the main highway of 27. Would you consider putting one of your stores in our town. We have a chamber of commerce here as we are the county seat for Glades County. We have a prison and a large jail, banks and gas stations. This empty store has gas tanks outside it can be used. We need a store here Please consider us.


Roberta B. Hofmann January 22, 2014 at 9:04 pm

I am thrilled that there is now an Aldi market. The Food is dated properly and the products are on par, (or even better at times) than our local large chain stores in the area.
I have been shopping at Aldi since it was opened in West Palm Beach, Florida. and notice that each time I go there are more folks shopping there, so the word of this new market is really getting out there.
I just have one question; I was told that all food not produced in the USA if marked as to where it is from. Since almost all are marked “Batavia, NY, I do believe that (you Corp. address), is where perhaps the food is received. I do want to know where the products come from. That is one thing I would like to know. Please E-mail me with the answer.
Thank you so much. Roberta Brecher Hofmann,

Today, I purchased Aldi’s Chef’s Cupboard – Chicken Noodle Soup- Condensed Soup 10.5 ounces.

Your label states that Aldi distributes this product.
Your label states that this product was inspected by the US.

Unfortunately, your label does not state where the product was MADE.

As a consumer and more importantly to me and to other educated consumers, we want to know, where specifically in what state in the USA and or in what exact country where this specific product was made? not distributed. – Please provide this exact information.

Thank you.

We visited the Aldi Store located on Bridge Street in Yorkville, Il on Fri, Jan 10th at approx 6pm. As soon as we stepped out of our vehicle we noticed the entire parking lot was a sheet of ice. Before we could say anything to our 15 year old Daughter, she was already on the ground in pain. She slipped on the ice, hit her shin on our vehicle, and landed on her rear. She is currently complaining of hip and buttock pain.
As soon as we went inside the Store we noticed signs stating to “Be careful, Parking lot very, very slippery”. That was nice, but the signs were posted on the INSIDE of the Store and not facing toward the Parking Lot where Patrons (Like us) could read them.
We did not seek Medical attention for her injuries. Our Daughter said she was fine at the time, but is still at a “Medium Pain” level. We wanted to have this on record with Aldi, and it has been very difficult to find any conact infomation for any Aldi Store or Corporate Office to leave our information.
If our Daughter is still in pain in on Sat morning, we will be taking her to the Emergency Room in Yorkville.
Please contact us asap so we can rectify this situation right away.

Raymond Walper


Scott Mayo January 19, 2014 at 11:00 pm

Why on earth do you think it is Aldi’s job to put a sign in the parking lot to say there is ice on the ground. What would Darwin say?…???? You didn’t notice the ice until “we stepped out of our car”…really???…Ray..looking for easy money or what?

I shop in store#52 in Toms River, New Jersey. I have never seen in my 76 yrs a nicer and hard working people, the manager is great. they work so hard helping in any way they can.

It is a pleasure shopping there. Please do me a favor and let them know in some sort of way through your corporate office. I have sent a letter before but I never heard back.

Please send me a email , because I getting tired of telling them how wonderful they are. pleasant and always wear a smile when you are being checked out. thank you for taking the time to read this.

In Houston the same people working in the office screening applications throwing them in the trash are the same people who smoke weed after work and try to clean their system before any drug test. I bet if they test their hair they will catch there back office weed heads screwing people out of a job


Ms. Williams December 5, 2013 at 12:57 pm

I have utilized your web-site to make a complaint about your district manager for the Perkins RD, Memphis, TN 38117 location. His supervisor has chosen to dismiss me completely. I began the process on 10/23/2013 via phone. Due to lack of follow-up by the district manager, I called the office again a few weeks later. After his display of poor customer service skills, I utilized your web-site to report him. I have been told twice that his supervisor has been informed and would contact me soon. Today’s date is 12/5/2013. This terribly sad and disappointing. The stores in Memphis have been on a decline for some time now. I now understand why. Your customers deserve better.


eileen kemp December 1, 2013 at 10:08 am

I live in the us but I am from England. Can I suggest a new store in North Myrtle Beach. SC this area is expanding so fast. We need the variation in foods that you supply with your excellent quality it would be great.


Susanna Panasky November 10, 2013 at 4:58 pm

Dear Aldi’s Customer Service,
I was in your Aldi’s in Broadview, IL today around 2:15. While shopping, the manager on duty announced that the system had gone down, and Aldi’s would not be accepting bank debit cards or link, only cash would be accepted at this time. I had a basket full of food and saw the manager and asked if he knew how long the system would be down. He said the entire system, all of the Aldi’s in the US were down, and didn’t know when the system would be up again.

I asked if they could hold my cart so I could go to my ATM to get cash. He said yes. When I arrived at the check out, I told the girl at the register that the manager had advised me that they could hold my cart of food while I go to get cash. She was nice and said “yes” and I asked where she wanted me to put the cart, and she said “here” pointing to the side of the register.

I went to my ATM, and of coarse that ATM machine wasn’t working. I traveled further to another PNC bank and got my cash. I returned to the store and saw the manager near the registers and said “Don’t tell me, your now back on line?” He replied “Yes we are”. I asked where my cart was (because it wasn’t where I was told to leave it), and the manager looked around and asked the checkout girl where it was. Another employee was approaching us and he asked her if she knew where my cart was. The employee said she had put back everything in the cart. The manager repeated that same statement to me. No “I’m sorry”, No “tell me what you had & I’ll get it for you”, just blank looks on their faces.

You know, I understand that machines break down. I understand that it sometimes happens at inconvenient times. But I traveled to two banks to get the cash, was gone no more than 30 minutes (if not less) came back, and your store had already restocked my items.

It would be of great importance, to advise your employees, that when they tell their customer something, they should follow through. I could understand if it took me two hours, but it didn’t. I was less than thirty minutes. I spent $$ in gas traveling to the two ATM’s and got nothing in return. I was disappointed and saddened in the way your Broadview, IL store handled this situation.

Sincerely (but upset),

Susanna Panasky


jake December 11, 2013 at 9:01 am

They should have said something, but they were right in putting things back. After 20 minutes of you being gone, I would have done the same thing. You should have called the store and let them know you were running into atm problems if you were going to go this far and complain about it. Communication goes both ways.


ita January 31, 2014 at 5:44 pm

JAKE,Calling would have been a great idea if Aldi had a phone number listed anywhere that you could actually call. I have been to every single website, from corporate websites to yellow pages, receipts…to no avail. The numbers listed for corporate are just fax numbers. It feels as if no one wants to be found. And all I want to do is call my local Aldi, because I left my prescription glasses there and I wanted them to secure them for me. I’m too old, it’s too cold, and to far for me to go back there today.


Cyndi christopher November 7, 2013 at 7:38 pm

Erica December 5, 2013 at 7:03 pm

I am a former Aldi employee and just by reading what you have written out “here” (NOT HEAR) I can tell you why you were not hired…

It’s not because you are 53. The store I worked at had a manager older then you. Aldi is a great company to work for but they also are looking for great employees who present themselves as smart hard working people and by the comment you posted you do not seem to fall in that category.

I tried applying to aldi for a job and never here (heard) back fom (from) them. I’ve worked in retail my whole life, I think because I’m older they don’t hire (me).

…just for starters

I’m not saying that ALL Aldi employees are smart but all the ones I have worked with wouldn’t have written something like this out on an employers website.


Former Employee!


jake December 11, 2013 at 9:03 am

There is a reason why you are a former employee. The way you dismantle people was probably noticed and therefore you were let go.

Courtney Moore November 5, 2013 at 1:38 pm

I am disappointed in the Batavia division of Corporate Aldi. I submitted a request for a donation of approx $55 retail value product in paper plates, forks, hotdogs, buns, and ketchup for a benefit my co-workers and I are hosting for our friend Sue Jacobson. I was told that my request was declined because Aldi does not donate to private benefits, only to major fundraising organizations. That is really a shame, since Sue was a long time shopper of Aldi, and the rest of us frequently shop Aldi as well. I think it’s sad that such a large corporation can’t manage to come up with such a small assist when Portillo’s, Chick-Fil-A and many others have contributed much more.


Courtney Moore November 5, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Added note, our event is Saturday, November 9, 2013.


jake December 11, 2013 at 9:04 am

Go over to walmart they will let you fundraise or they will make a donation. Or go door to door but don’t throw a chain under the bus because they didn’t do what “you” wanted.


J. October 30, 2013 at 6:57 am

I’ve shopped at Aldi for 20+ years. When I began shopping at Aldi, it was a store with basic food needs at incredibly reasonable prices. Aldi has steadily increased the offering of specialty food & non-food items, & with this the prices on basic food items has increased. The prices for routine grocery items are now often near/at those of the larger competing chain grocery stores, & sometimes higher than discount stores (such as Walmart). I have occasionally purchased the specialty items, but would prefer to have Aldi offer a consistent stock of staples at a significant savings. In my opinion, Aldi is moving away from doing one thing well (basic food needs at a reasonable price) & trying to get into a market that’s already saturated with stores offering wide ranges of products (toys, home decor, etc.).


Courtney Moore November 5, 2013 at 2:04 pm

Agreed, this is absolutely 100% accurate. I think Karl and Theo’s mother would choke uncontrollably at what the store has mutated into during the last decade alone. I watched the cost of many basic food products rise multiple times by 10 to 80 cents each time; which has effectively doubled and tripled the cost of many basic food products, all in a very short time span. $50 to $60 would pack a grocery cart to the brim. Those days were not that long ago, but will never be with us again; with much disappointment.


Eloy Pastoriza October 17, 2013 at 4:15 pm

La tienda Aldi de Ávila, España No cumple con las leyes Españolas, Las ofertas que anuncian en las revistas e internet, desaparecen el primer dia y los demas clientes no podemos acceder a ellas. Las leyes Españolas obligan a tener todos los dias de la oferta los articulos ofertados y a pedir al personal que les consigan las ofertas durante los dias que este vigente la oferta y aun despues de haber terminado la oferta. Maltratan a los buenos clientes pues conociendo las ofertas que nos interesan no nos las reservan (” ESTA PROHIBIDO”), y permiten que un cliente ocasional se lleve los articulos ofertados impidiendo a los buenos clientes de toda la vida que podamos comprar lo que deseamos. Aldi puede vender por anticipado reservando los articulos a los buenos clientes y lo que hacen en realidad es maltratarnos y que nos entren las ganas de no comprar en Aldi. La tienda Aldi de Ávila esta muy mal sumisnistrada pues solo reciben 5 o 8 articulos de las ofertas, impidiendo que todos los clientes tengamos acceso a los productos ofertados , con lo cual el personal y la direccion de aldi se rie de todos los clientes fijos, que no podesmos acceder el primer dia de las ofertas, los clientes acudimos a comprar las ofertas a partir del dia segundo y ya no quedan ofertas, se han terminado y no las vuelven a traer, ni hay forma de localizarlas. Yo llevo desde hace mas de 5 meses esperando que me cabiasen un articulo defectuoso y al final lo único que han hecho, es devolverme el dinero. Compre una grapadora electrica y necesito las grapas de medida especial y Aldi no suministra las grapas tal y como esta obligada por las leyes españolas llevo mas de 8 meses esperando las dichosas grapas, y todos los responsables y directivos con los que he hablado han hecho oidos sordos incluso uno Aleman, muchos trajes y corbatas pero no solucionan nada. Aldi incumple las leyes españolas, solo trae cuatro o 6 articulos de las ofertas incumpliendo las leyes Españolas y riendose de los clientes fijos del Aldi, nos estafa vendiendonos productos estropeados y no cambiandolos por unos nuevos, y cuando las ofertas se han terminado no las reponen (esto es publicidad engañosa) y cuando los empleados buenos tratan de solucionar estos problemas les despiden por tener contentos a los clientes Eloy Pastoriza
Der Aldi Filiale in Avila, Spanien nicht mit dem spanischen Recht, die Angebote, Werbung in Zeitschriften und im Internet, verschwinden die ersten Tag und die anderen Clients Wir haben keinen Zugang zu ihnen. Spanische Gesetze gezwungen sind, alle haben die Tage der bieten die Artikel werden angeboten und Bediensteten zu verlangen, daß sie die eingegangenen Angebote sie in den Tagen, die diese aktuelle Versorgung und selbst wenn sie sie haben runden das Angebot ab. Mögen die guten Kunden, weil die Kenntnis der Angebote, dass wir daran interessiert sind wir sind nicht die reservierten (” IST VERBOTEN” ), und damit eine gelegentliche Client wird das Angebot durch die Verhinderung der guten Kunden von allen das Leben, das können wir kaufen, was wir wollen. Aldi verkaufen können im Voraus buchen Artikel zu guten Kunden und dem, was sie wirklich ist maltratarnos und, dass wir geben sie den Wunsch nach nicht kaufen bei Aldi. Die Aldi Filiale von Avila war sehr schlecht sumisnistrada erhalten nur 5 oder 8 Artikel von der Angebote, die Verhinderung der Clients haben wir Zugriff auf die angebotenen Produkte, mit denen das Management und das Personal bei Aldi lacht an alle Stammkunden, dass nicht podesmos Zugriff auf den ersten Tag der eingereichten Angebote, Kunden zu kaufen die Angebote ab dem zweiten Tag und es gab keine Gebote, sind fertiggestellt und nicht zurück zu bringen, und es gibt keinen Weg, um sie zu identifizieren. Ich habe seit mehr als 5 Monaten auf mich warten cabiasen eine defekte Komponente und am Ende das einzige, was sie getan haben, ist mir wieder das Geld. Ich kaufte mir ein elektrischer Hefter und ich brauche die Klammern der besonderen Maßnahme und Aldi liefert nicht die Klammern als ist nach spanischem Recht vorgesehenen dauerte mehr als 8 Monate warten auf die selige klemmen, und alle Manager und Führungskräfte mit denen ich gesprochen habe auf taube Ohren gestoßen sind auch eine Deutsche, viele Anzüge und Krawatten aber keine Lösungen. Aldi nicht mit spanischen Gesetz, bringt nur vier oder 6 Artikel von der Angebote unter Verstoß gegen die spanischen Gesetze und lachten über den regelmäßigen Kunden von der Aldi, wir scam vendiendonos Produkte beschädigt und nicht vertauschen Sie sie mit neuen Kindern, und wenn die Angebote wurden nicht beendet haben wieder aufgefüllt (dies ist irreführende Werbung) und wenn die Mitarbeiter gut zu lösen versuchen diese Probleme werden sie entlassen haben zufriedene Kunden Eloy Pastoriza

I am going to take the can for the green beans back to my local store but wanted you to know.
I bought a can of green beans and a can of corn to try as I have never used this brand.
Happy Harvest French Style.
I placed in pan added butter and came back later to put in serving dish.
I saw a dark object floating on top and when I removed it I found a well cooked insect.
I grew up raising gardens and I know these little caterpillars love to hid in the vines.
You could see very plainly the head and legs.
Just thought you should know. I worked in retail for years and know the flak you can get from something like this.
After gagging a bit I carefully wrapped in a paper towel. It has been a few days so it may be dried out, so I haven’t disturbed it.
The can it came in has a UPC # 041498120535

My first comment s a very positive one! We were introduced to Aldi through our daughter, who at that time lived in Naperville, Il. We were visiting her home and she began telling me how much she was saving on groceries. Some time went by and Aldi opened a store in Seneca, S. C., which is where we retired. In this day of rising costs, it amazes me that so much value can be obtained, still saving money! I just baked your frozen apple pie today, have one in the freezer, as well. My husband loves your cinnamon rolls!

My reason for contacting you is about the Tilapia which I purchase from you. Recently I read a research paper on Tiiapia and mushrooms raised in China, and the conditions under which they are grown! Today I chose some frozen tilapia, read the label, and found your frozen tilapia is raised in China. I put it back in the freezer case. I will share this article if you s o desire, but am so disappointed that yours comes from China. With your buying power, surely you might be able to find a source elsewhere. Thanks for listening.

I just recently came across ALDI. To my surprise I was shock. Great quality low prices. A combination hardly ever in sinc. I have been trying to get information on becoming a franchise owner for ALDI in Argentina but I have not been able to get in contact with anyone. I notice that ALDI has many stores around the globe but nothing in South America (Argentina). Could you by any chance be able to direct me to the International Office for ALDI. I have been on the ALDI Website and I am unable to find anything. Thank you in advance for your help i this matter.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am a naturalized citizen from Germany, and have been living in Colorado since 1997. I grew up with Aldi, (a household name), and recently found out that Aldi stopped their movement west in Kansas.
So, I am asking if Aldi is planning their expansion to Colorado. Colorado Springs to be specific. This is a very big military community, and has a lot of Germanys living here. Heck, we even have our very own German Bakery here, how often does that happen this far west.
Anyway, I was just wondering if you had considered moving further west, especially to Colorado Springs. I know a lot of us would love it.
Oh, and one more question, back home Aldi carried seasonal items as well as year-round items, is this true for the state side stores as well?
Thank you for your consideration,
Conny Sample

Any response as to when Aldi will expand to Colorado?!

Dear sirs or madams,
I was hired in August of this year and I know the employee handbooks states that you lift around 45lbs and I dont have a problem with,what I have a problem with is how many pallets of stock that I have to be able to finish in 3 hours before the store opens. Is there a requirement? and if so how MANY is required or is this up to the store manager. Thanks


Erie June 26, 2014 at 4:52 pm

3 pallets an hour is basic requirements for throwing truck.


Gloria Grant September 1, 2013 at 7:29 pm

Dear Sir or Madam,

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Gloria Grant, Chair person for Boxes for the Military. What are boxes for the military? It is a non-profit Mission that our church,
St. Marks UMC, Indialantic, Florida started 4 years ago. We send Non-perishable Food, Hygiene Items, Treats, Clothing, at Christmas we send stockings filled with children’s letters and messages of God’s love and encouragement, and add warmer items to our boxes (this page would not hold all the items we send).
We send these boxes three times a year, Easter, 4th of July, and Christmas.
So far we have mailed over 900 boxes and that is just a drop in the bucket.

We have bake sales to help buy items, but it does not bring in the finances we need. So I am contacting you to ask for help with this Mission. We only send boxes to our military that have no way to get to a PX or commissary, the boys and girls on the front lines, who spend weeks walking and eating dust and MREs.

We work through Anysoldier.com.
The soldiers post a Wish List (many times they ask for things like Baby Wipes, since they may not be able to take a shower for weeks at a time). We try to fill part of their lists, but finances make it difficult.
We recognize times are hard, so if you could share gift cards for your stores we and our Military would be very grateful.

I have heard that Aldi supermarkets are boycotting products from parts of Israel….if this is true, my family will not be customers in your stores…and they are building one here in Brattleboro, Vermont!


Yolanda Bacerott July 16, 2013 at 6:39 pm

This is a suggestion to open up an Aldi in Mission, Texas. My whole family grew up in.Chicago and over the past few years have moved to Mission and McAllen, Texas. We are very avid Aldi shoppers and believe in Aldi’s mission and values. Hopefully this reaches the proper sources. If not, a suggestion as to whom I can send this to would be great. My family is making our way down next month and would love to see Aldi in our new neighborhood!

I wanted to contact the corp. office because of a recent interview or should say interviews . I was contacted by the Aldi store in Latrobe Pa to see if I would come in for an interview which I did on a Sunday which was Fathers Day . Interview went well managers name was John I really liked how he conducted the interview . He said he was for sure I would get second interview with the other manager Chad in which less than a week Chad did call me for second interview and to show me around so I would know what I would be doing . That interview went well also . It wasn’t hard to understand what I would be doing and would not be hard to learn at all . He told me as we were shaking hands that John would definitely be calling me , which never happened . I gave him a week then called left John a message told him that I very much wanted to work for the company and couldn’t wait to hear from him and left him my number . He never contacted me . So just a few mins before starting this letter I figured I would call again and he said position was filled to a more qualified person . I am very upset because the company states that you train . I very much wanted to work for this company and was led on to believe I was hired by what what said to me . I’m very upset and very disappointed for the way this went . I am a very hard worker very determined and outgoing all I wanted was to get my life started since all my children moved on with their lives so it is time for me to do the same . Is this the way they do all their interviews by saying things like that to let people think they were hired ? If so ,that is no way to conduct business . I feel that I was led on they both should have never done that . At the very least they could have called me to let me know after I had left a message for him to do so . They were both very nice but very wrong in leading me on .

Sincerely ,

Rebecca Fosbrink
