What the company is doing

In Germany and the rest of the European Union, Aldi is a supermarket. There are also Aldi stores in Australia and the USA. At least one shop is open in most German cities and villages. Germany has roughly 4,100 stores, and worldwide there are 7,600 of them. ALbrecht-DIscount shows the origin of the name we know.

The firm is a food retailer; however, it also sells non-food products. Aldi used to sell computers that were often demanded in the 1990s. Aldi is considered to be a deal shop, and it forces its suppliers to sell at low prices to them.

The history of the brand

The first Aldi store opened in Germany in 1961. It was founded by the Albrecht family and has made Aldi the world's first discount store. Aldi is headquartered in Batavia, Illinois, and currently has more than 2,000 stores in 36 States, has more than 25,000 employees. It has demonstrated steady growth since the opening of the first US store in Iowa in 1976. Aldi US has been sticking to the same guiding philosophy for over forty years. Good quality is not meant to be at a high price.

Business directions

Aldi's market strategy is known to employ economic means of profit when offering high-quality, low-priced goods. The thrift-conscious brothers have built from the beginning a basic yet effective company strategy where prices have been lowered by stocking only non-perishable goods and not supporting slow sellers. They concentrated less on publicity and focused more on mouth marketing. The brothers have also turned the shop into their first self-service shop to save money for employees.

In line with its remaining market strategies, Aldi has a successful human-resource policy. The firm focuses on workers: when there are fewer of them, they work more effectively. The company uses sophisticated techniques to maintain productivity; for example, consumers have a quarter to pay for the shopping cart they get when they return.
