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 was in the store on prosperity church road in charlotte on July 5 2016 around 230pm. I got in line at the 2nd register. The cashier was ringing someone up,I placed my iteams on the belt. She yells out she can get u on the first register, but my items were already on the belt, I was not about to take my items off the belt to go to another register especially since she only had a few more items to ring then she would have been on my groceries. So because I didn’t move my items she took her closed sign and threw it in front of my groceries. I asked her did she want me to place this behind my stuff, she said yeah… (YES is a little more professional since this is Aldi). Anyways I get to the register, she didn’t greet me. She told me my total, I said how are you and I receive no response, I paid, she gave me my receipt and proceeded to get up from the register. I said thank you Carol, (still no response) ur supposed to say thank you Carol, I could be ur mystery shopper. And I left. NOW I know that is not the Aldi standard. The visit over all was pleasant til I got to checkout. I don’t know if she was in a hurry to get off or having a bad day or because she wanted me to go to another register and I stayed at hers but what she did today is not Aldi standard, regardless of what she had going on, I deserve the same professional treatment as anyone else.

Hi everyone I have been employed by Aldi’s since the store has open in my city since 2016 , I have been unhappy since I have been empolyed with this company. I am the type of person that likes to go to work and do my work in peace and not have a lot of gossiping going on. There is one manager that has a tendency to talk about my race everytime that I am schedule to work, I feel very uncomfortable saying anything to anyone because I am the only one of my race that works at this store. The manger has actually come up to me and ask me was I mixed with some other nationality I didn’t know what to say I was shoke that a manager could question a employee on their race. Since the store has open I have been on time since I have been empolyed me and other associates wait outside every morning for this manager to come racing into the parking lot because she is late every time she opens the store which makes up late as well she will no allow up to clock in until she clocks in first. We have work from 5am until 6pm without a break and no one questions her why we can’t have a break if we work over 6 hours. I was told by my uncle who is a attorney to record the conversations that this manager is having in the break room about the other race, which I have on my cell phone. I was also told to take pics of my time card that indicatied that I was not given my breaks when I work 5am-6pm which I have done. I wanted to post the conversation of this manager on social media and contact my local news sation but my uncle advise me not to at this time until I hear something back from corporate. I was hoping to work at this company to pay for my nursing school but I see I need to move on and not be unhappy due to this one manager.

Sincerely
Virginia

Aldi, who hires your managers and employees. Your Managers are rude, store full of ruthless thugs. The managers are basically the leaders, leading employees to bullies to the disabled, elderly, etc. without consequence, looking for a better store, I don’t mind paying for good customer service!

Why do you not support Paralympics??? You openly advertise you help Olympians but not Paralympics!! Until you do I will be posting and bloc!ing entrances and hanging signs to this effect, I’m handicapped and have lots of handicapped friends.
We will never shop at this store again and this will spread, it’s a tragedy to think a company is so single minded as not to support ALL Olympians not just those who aren’t handicapped!!!

Cam, I’ve witnessed mistreatment of employees at the store and terrible customer service. When an employee comments on a mangers mistreatment, you know it’s bad. Sadly, we have first hand experience of workplace discrimination and the DM is now involved as well. Too many people have quite and or were threatened to be fired, which is harassment. There is strength in numbers. Please feel free to contact me regarding your experience. By the way, we are spreading the word in our circle of influence and letting the community know what is happening in the workplace and why they are having a difficult time keeping good employees. Good luck to you.

Went to return a item that I bought last night. Turned out to be the wrong item decided to take it back today. Walked in with the item under my arm while talking to the phone. Walked all the way around. Waited my turn in line, get to the cashier and she says you can return it because u stolen it. No I have a receipt for the item, I would like a refund. Manager Joe was called and I explain the issue. I was told to leave the store. I called the police (they watched the video of the door only) and said that it doesn’t should the item in your hand so I was never given a refund nor the item back. Police advise to take to small claims court. But if I stole it why wasn’t I arrested. Why should I have to sue for my money back for something that I bought.

I am writing on behalf of myself and several employees who is concerned for their/my safety at this warehouse and the unsafe and unfair practices that is being done. On July 4, the warehouse was opened for 4th of July and they had a worker named Natalie Williams come into work, She was very drunk and she was very belligerent with co-workers and proceeded to bite another employee on the butt. I have the proof of this happening from the employee who was bit. A staff member (Stephanie Cox) who reported this to the office was later fired and the reasoning for this was because she allegedly hit a tugger on purpose 2 years ago. she was fired for being a safety hazard. Stephanie also had never been wrote up and never had any issues. but They let this girl Natalie back to work. AFTER she showed up drunk, put everyone at risk and physically assaulted a staff member by biting her. And they do not consider THIS a safety hazard??? Several employees and I are ready to have someone come in and privately interview and investigate this matter but we do not know who to contact for this. There are several issues that need to be addressed. Jake Walker who runs this place and Paula Roberts cooler supervisor who let a known drunk who assaults people by biting them both let this Natalie back to work are putting us at risk. Natalie has also been known to drive thru warehouse yelling black power and supervisors are aware of this and still does nothing. No one at this place is taking safety into consideration. This is going on at the warehouse on 475 pearl drive in st. peters mo 63376 NOTHING is being done and the workers in the cooler freezer are being subjected to a hostile workplace.

Although many times in the past, I have experienced racial discrimination and other unprofessional practices in Aldi stores, especially when it comes to store # 25 in Carol Stream Illinois where I go most of the time, but this time it happened more openly and loudly and the cashier ‘Rene’ from same store (store # 25 in Carol Stream IL) challenged me to report any where against her including making complaint to Aldi HQ. Yesterday, around 4:45 PM, we were waiting in open line to check out. (another line had a closed sign but cashier was still finishing with her last customer). We were (me and wife) the last customer in this only open line, when I heard the cashier from other closed line to come to her. I was about to change the line (nobody was behind us and the customer ahead of me had already put her stuff on rolling machine). The same cashier who wanted to take more customers from closed line specifically pointed her finger towards one white female customer ahead of me in my line and also verbally asked her to come to her register. It was ok for us because anybody who is ahead of anybody should be served first, but the lady who was ahead of me seemed quite sensible and civilized, she replied “I am ok here” But unfortunately, this was not the case of courtesy and professionalism of other cashier who had a “closed” sign. Any way, when I changed the line and went to the cashier who had a closed sign, I asked her that why she had to pick and choose the customer? She laughed arrogantly and rudely replied “you are wrong” I asked her if I am wrong, why she picked a specific kind of customer from in-between line? She again arrogantly replied the same and denied any wrong doing. Now, let me explain truly what we heard, witnessed and experienced: We (me and my wife) were the last customer in the line we were before. There were three customer ahead of us in that line. First customer was almost done, and I did not pay any attention to her/his race or color, because it is neither civilized nor lawful to see or judge people on the basis of their color, race or religion, the second customer in that line who was little closer to us, to best of my recollection was a colored one (may be Indian or of some other descent). I am not trying to play a race card or intend to insult anybody’s race or color here, I respect all human beings, but in order to explain the exact situation we were in, I have to truly write what we saw, heard and experienced). The last customer ahead of us was a white lady (who was directly picked/chosen to be helped, but she refused to change the line and said “I am ok here). Now. I let readers decide what was wrong and why? Here is my question to that Aldi store manger and higher executives of Aldi Corporation:

1. If a cashier has to close a line and put closure sign, why he/she is at the liberty to continue taking customers, especially when there is no big rush or lot of people waiting in other line?

2. If suppose the cashier who had a closure sign is highly professional and courteous and thinks that he/she should continue serving the customers for a while in order to assist customers and his/her co worker at other counter, why she/he has to pick and choose her own kind of customer from in between line?

My comment: First of all, the store mangers and the cashiers must be properly trained and free of personal/racial thoughts and practices at work. Secondly, the store mangers and cashiers must know what are the busy and slow hours at their store and they must have enough cashiers all the time. In the above mentioned case, it is not only racial in my opinion but also, I found the cashier unprofessional and incompetent. It is store manger’s responsibility to make sure that the cashiers are fully trained, educated enough, must have good back ground, keep an eye what is happening in the store and must be available all the time in case a customer has any complaint or concern and if a cashier is closing, he/she must close only when another cashier is waiting to replacing him/her or wait till the rush is over in the store. Putting “closed” sign and continuing picking customer as per choice is nothing but a racial practice. I have experienced this many time before in the same store, and not only this, those who enjoy discriminating with certain kind of customers, also treat them like trash or second grade citizen. They laugh at them and even challenge them to make a complaint. I strongly believe, it starts from top to bottom. It reflects what the owners and its executive want to maintain. That is why most employees of ALDI are of one kind. Even in diverse areas they hire mostly one kind of people or one preferred minority. Certain minorities are rarely hired by Aldi. It is shame and it is unlawful. spea****@gamail.com

Natalie has also been known to drive thru warehouse yelling black power and when it was addressed by an employee who has a mixed son and a black husband SHE was wrote up for being racist.We also have a line lift driver who is known for being a pot head has hit SEVERAL employees with forklifts and nothing is being done about this. One person she hit was out on work comp for it and Michelle tinsley, the driver was never drug tested. Another employee Mary Jacobs had been addressing safety issues was also later fired for a false reason. Retaliation for standing up for yourself in this place resuls in termination.

Tonight I came home to find Whitehall OH store employees Matt (store manager) and my girlfriend Sarah Martin in bed together. The two of them have been opening the store alone for 6+ months and it wouldn’t surprise me if this has been happening on the premesis. I am disgusted that Aldi would allow this inappropriate and unprofessional employer/employee relationship. I am expecting action to be taken including one or both of the employees removal from the Whitehall OH store if not the Aldi corporation entirely. Unacceptable. I am awaiting a response to this situation.

You would not believe the prices of groceries here. The poor military families are being gouged to excess, not to mention the entire pop. We were so upset when we found no Aldi here. Boy, would I love it af wal mart , Winn Dixie and Publix could be put in their place. Please consider an Aldi’s in Clearwater, or Pensacola. I would drive an hour to shop there.

My name is Kathy Scimeca. I’m writing you to express my interest in the IT Support – level 1 position. My professional experience at AT&T as an Information Technology Support Engineer and Information Technology Computer Systems Analyst makes me an excellent candidate for this position.

All of my experience at AT&T was support and customer service. I was in management most of my career. My retail experience was working for Carsons Department Store for 6 months, some time ago. Although, due to the nature of the Centrex system, I did recommend customers to upgrade or buy additional lines and/or features.

As an IT Support Engineer, at a technical support desk, I received calls from AT&T customers across the United States, internal and external customers and vendors. I answered hardware/software issues regarding the an AT&T system called Centrex. For process improvements I submitted customer change requests. I trained various end-users from peers to customers.

In 2008, alone, I completed 238 hours of additional training to become more proficient at my position as an Information Technology Computer Systems Analyst.

I would appreciate an opportunity to interview with you or one of your staff to further discuss employment opportunities at ALDI. If someone would like to schedule an interview with me, please have them contact me on 847-207-**** or send me an email. I have a rule when I am working to not answer my cell phone, it remains on silent and then at my earliest convenience, I will return any calls. I would be delighted to work for ALDI.

Sincerely,
Kathy Scimeca

Greetings Aldi’s Management,

Today I had the absolute most embarrassing and humiliating time at your location in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
I got to your store at roughly 3:30PM on 01/07/2014 Wednesday. All was good until I reached the checkout area. This is where the nightmare began. Me and my wife where in line at register #2 and after waiting approximately 10 minutes the cashier (Nerla) got off her stool and advised the entire lane that we should move to register #5 since that was now open. Me and my wife went as instructed to register #5 along with 3 other customers. We were the first in line so I was glad that we moved or I thought. After waiting 10 more minutes and no one showing up and the customers behind me at register #5 beginning to abandon the new line. I walked back over to register #2 where the cashier (Nerla) was at and politely asked her, “Excuse me ma’am; you had me and my wife move over to register #5 and no one is there. She looked at me with contempt and replied, “What’s wrong with you, You don’t hear me ringing the bell; she’ll be right there.!” After that remark I held my own since I noticed she was pregnant and did not want to upset her even if her response was less than professional and appropriate. I walked away since I did not want any more backlash from this cashier. The customers in that line even looked at me in dismay as to what was happening. I returned to the line at register #5 when finally seeing that the cashier that I was waiting to tend to that register #5 was outside of the building on her cellphone and another young lady went to get her to what I thought was to take care of register #5. Well this young lady came over to the register took out her cash drawer and walked into the front office saying; “I’m on break” and leaving us still in the same line. The young lady that went to get that cashier then came over to me and my wife and said, “You can start emptying out your cart now someone will be here in a second.” So again I did as I was instructed and unloaded my groceries. Now 20 minutes had passed and still no cashier and now all my groceries were on the conveyor belt to be checked out. By now the customers that were behind me had been replenished by 3 new customers that made a line behind me hearing that the young lady instructed me to unload my cart. After waiting another 10 minutes and looking around the front of the store for the manager and no where to be found. Another manager came to the register (Ernest). He only said that it would be a few more minutes since he couldn’t log in to the register with his password. He walked away and again believe it or not me and my wife were again in limbo. I had the customers behind me asking what happened and I just looked at them and shrugged my shoulders in disbelief myself. Now 30 minutes had elapsed and I finally saw the store manager (Otto) restocking merchandise in the 5th aisle so I darted to get him to assist. After I quickly explained the lack of urgency at the front of the store, he said: “I’ll be right there” and you know what; he never came to aid not even check into what had happened. By the time I got back to the line where my wife was still standing with our groceries, we were the only customers waiting in an empty line with our groceries on the conveyor belt. The cashier at register #2 (Nerla) that had originally told us and other customers to go to register #5 turned around to look at us still at register #5 and just smirked at us as if to say, not my problem or fault on what was going on.
At this point my wife just basically said we should just leave and that’s when the other manager (Ernest) came back and opened the register and started to finally check us out. I asked (Ernest) why did this happen and he replied; “I’m the manager and if you have any issues then you should direct them to me”. I looked at him very puzzled since he was one of the reasons we were still in line for now 40 minutes. Apparently a mass confusion on who was going to tend to register #5 and the lack of leadership of management to take responsibility for the lack of customer service at the front of the store.
The store manager (Otto) which I attempted to ask for aid and never showed up to the front of the store was still stocking merchandise and in my experience in Retail; while it is important to lead by example, you don’t send out the most valuable Primary player to do the labor work of what a secondary or trishiery employee could also do. The responsibility of a store manager is to delegate his authority and take care of the overall store experience. His lack of proper management is another reason why this visit fell apart. The abrasive way I was spoken to by the cashier (Nerla) was extremely unacceptable. The young lady that instructed me to unload my groceries (didn’t get her name) came up to me while I was bagging my groceries and I asked her for the name of the cashier at register #2 and she responded, “Did something happen?” I just looked her and replied, “You were here, you know what happened”. She smiled and just walked away. Finally the lack of proper communication and fundamental leadership from the other manager (Ernest) was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

I shop here every week and spend an average of $125,00 every week. I’ve included my cash register receipt as proof of not only what I purchased but the time stamp to when I finally left the store. While I truly believe that Aldi’s would survive without my weekly shopping list. I also have to believe that if this happens to a few customers then the word would spread and then upper management would now be looking for answers.

By the time me and my wife were in our vehicle heading for home which we didn’t want to get stuck in traffic that’s why we came in to Aldi’s in the early afternoon versus late afternoon or evening. It is now 7:31PM, after getting caught in the east to west traffic of almost an hour. My frozen groceries are mush and my poultry and other groceries have leaked all over the trunk of my vehicle. I had to throw away almost a ¼ of my groceries away. Now that in itself is ridiculous.

After typing this long synopsis of what has occurred here today I expect an upper management response to this situation within 24 hours or the latest 48 hours of sending this message.

Govern Yourselves Accordingly,

Mike R. Oré

Dear mike. I just would like to apologize for the treatment you received at aldi. I am an aldi employee, i do not work in your state but ny aldi. And reading this really upsets me. I have worked this company for over five years and for the most part it is a good company. I know for a fact that would not have happened in my store because we are ontop of customer service.i am embarrassed that you and your wife were treated like that. Unfortunately some stores do not have good management or employees. I to was on here to ask about an issue that i had gone thru at another aldi that was not okay. I do hope corporate contact you if not you should call that aldi and ask for the number of the district manager . You have the right to have that number as a customer. Once again i am very sorry you had to go thru that situation with unprofessional management and employees. please dont hold all aldi responsible for the lack of professionalism you received from that store. And i want to thank you for shopping at aldi. Its the costumers that keep the store going. Kristy

I went into the store before around 11am after church yesterday and was helped by a African American cashier that I never seen before at the Plano K Ave store. I later had to bring my mother back to shop at 7pm and the same cashier was there and checked us out she was just as pleasant And cordial as she was with me earlier. My mother did not like going to Aldis because she thinks the customer service is lousy and the cashiers are rude but she was thoroughly impressed with the new cashier and wants to go back now. Thank you Aldi for finally hiring a decent cashier who doesn’t throw my mothers groceries in the cart.

Did you have to mention that the cashier was African American? Why not just say that you had a great experience with a cashier?

You know its not a stinking crime to say someone is African American or Asian or even Caucasian. The person was only trying to point out who helped her twice in one day and point out how nice her experience was in both occasions and just wanted to make sure the correct person got the proper credit for it. What should be a crime is some idiot continuously pointing out how someone else is just trying to be polite and leave a positive comment. Political correctness is getting to be too extreme for most people anymore. Get over yourself, we are all different, nothing rude was said except by you.

We have shopped at Aldi since 1992. It is affordable, efficient, and the product line has kept increasing. You can enjoy products from Europe at an affordable price too. Keep up the good work.

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.

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.

Hello,

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.).

Reply

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.

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.
Thks.
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

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

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!

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
