About Aldi

Aldi (German: Aldi; short for Albrecht Diskont) is a German discount shop chain. As a hard discounter chain (with a retail margin of around 12 per cent), Aldi saves on floor space, equipment and staff, but maintains a consistent level of service, variety and quality. In particular, there are no shop windows and a smaller selection of goods compared to other types of retail outlets. The average size of a shop is 1,000-1,500 sq m, the assortment is only 700-800 items, more than 80% is a private label; there are three or four people working in the shops.
