Aldi To Roll Out 32 New Outlets Across Australia
Just about every Australian state will feel the expansion of Aldi.
The German retail giant is set to open another 32 stores across the country.
And it doesn’t stop there.
This year, as part of a refurbishment program, 100 existing stores are set to get a complete makeover, with some getting a new in-store format altogether.
NSW - 7
Two of them will be based in Wetherill Park and Warners Bay
QLD – 8
Two confirmed for The Gap and Dalby with
VIC – 4
Gladstone is confirmed.
WA – 9
Three of which are confirmed for Wanneroo, Beeliar
SA - 4
One confirmed for Kilkenny.
And while Woolies and Coles continue to go hard with self-serve, click and collect and online services, Aldi will remain purely a bricks-and-mortar experience.
Customers who still haven’t got the hang of Aldi’s hectically fast checkout (me) are just going to have to get used to it.
“We ask that customers put their purchases back in their trolley or basket once they have been scanned, and then pack at their own pace at the long bench behind the tills,” an Aldi spokesman told NewsCorp.
“…our stores do not have self-service checkout and there are currently no plans to implement them.”
