Aldi
Aldi
(stylised as ALDI) is the common brand of two discount supermarket chains with over 10,000 stores in 20 countries, and an estimated combined turnover of more than €50 billion.[1][5][6] Based in Germany, the chain was founded by brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht in 1946 when they took over their mother's store in Essen, which had been in operation since 1913. The business was split into two separate groups in 1960, that later became Aldi
Aldi
Nord, headquartered in Essen, and Aldi
Aldi
Süd, headquartered in Mülheim.[7][8] In 1962, they introduced the name Aldi
Aldi
(a syllabic abbreviation for Albrecht Diskont),[9] which is pronounced [ˈaldiː] ( listen). In Germany, Aldi
Aldi
Nord and Aldi
Aldi
Süd have been financially and legally separate since 1966, although both divisions' names may appear (as if they were a single enterprise) with certain store brands or when negotiating with contractor companies. The formal business name is Aldi
Aldi
Einkauf GmbH & Compagnie, oHG. Aldi's German operations consist of Aldi
Aldi
Nord's 35 individual regional companies with about 2,500 stores in western, northern, and Eastern Germany, and Aldi
Aldi
Süd's 32 regional companies with 1,600 stores in western and southern Germany.[citation needed] Internationally, Aldi Nord operates in Denmark, France, the Benelux countries, the Iberian Peninsula, and Poland, while Aldi
Aldi
Süd operates in Ireland, Great Britain, Hungary, Switzerland, Australia, China, Italy, Austria
Austria
and Slovenia

( Aldi
Aldi
Süd operates as Hofer within the latter two countries). Both Aldi

History[edit]

Albrecht grocery store in Essen-Schonnebeck (1958)

Aldi's original store in Essen, still in operation

The earliest roots of the company trace back to 1913, when the mother of Karl and Theo Albrecht opened a small store in a suburb of Essen.[10] Their father was employed as a miner and later as a baker's assistant. Karl Albrecht
Karl Albrecht
was born in 1920, Theo Albrecht in 1922. Theo Albrecht completed an apprenticeship in his mother's store, while Karl Albrecht worked in a delicatessen. Karl Albrecht
Karl Albrecht
took over a food shop formerly run by F. W. Judt who already advertised that they were the "cheapest food source". Karl Albrecht served in the German Army during World War II. In 1946, the brothers took over their mother's business and soon opened another retail outlet nearby.[10] By 1950, the Albrecht brothers owned 13 stores in the Ruhr Valley.[citation needed] The brothers' idea, which was new at the time, was to subtract the legal maximum rebate of 3% before sale. The market leaders at the time, which often were co-operatives, required their customers to collect rebate stamps, and to send them at regular intervals to reclaim their money. The Albrecht brothers also rigorously removed merchandise that did not sell from their shelves, cutting costs by neither advertising nor selling fresh produce, and keeping the size of their retail outlets small.[10] When the brothers split the company in 1960 over a dispute whether they should sell cigarettes,[12] they owned 300 shops with a cash flow of DM90 million yearly. In 1962, they introduced the name Aldi—short for Albrecht-Diskont. Aldi
Aldi
Nord and Aldi
Aldi
Süd have been financially and legally separate since 1966, although both divisions' names may appear as if they were a single enterprise with certain store brands or when negotiating with contractor companies. The individual groups were originally owned and managed jointly by the brothers. Karl Albrecht
Karl Albrecht
(d. 2014) retained ownership of Aldi
Aldi
Süd, and with a personal wealth of €17.2 billion, making him the richest man in Germany, while the co-owners of Aldi
Aldi
Nord, Berthold and Theo Albrecht Jr., close behind at €16 billion. Dieter Schwarz, owner of Lidl
Lidl
and Kaufland
Kaufland
came in third, with a fortune of €11.5 billion.[13] Aldi
Aldi
started to expand internationally in 1967, when Aldi
Aldi
Süd acquired the grocery chain Hofer in Austria;[14] Aldi
Aldi
Nord opened its first stores abroad in the Netherlands
Netherlands
in 1973,[15] and other countries followed. In 1976, Aldi
Aldi
opened its first store in the United States in Iowa,[a] and, in 1979, Aldi
Aldi
Nord acquired Trader Joes.[10] After German reunification
German reunification
and the fall of the Iron Curtain, Aldi experienced a rapid expansion. The brothers retired as CEOs in 1993; control of the companies was placed in the hands of private family foundations, the Siepmann Foundation ( Aldi
Aldi
Süd) and the Markus Foundation ( Aldi
Aldi
Nord, Trader Joe's).[6] Business organization[edit] Germany[edit]

opened the 300th store in Great Britain.[22] By 2017 Aldi
Aldi
had over 600 stores there, and was opening them at a rate of more than one a week with the aim of having a thousand stores by 2022.[23] It was still a small player in Great Britain, with a grocery share of less than 3.6%, but its importance, along with that of continental no-frills competitor Lidl
Lidl
was growing, with half of shoppers in Great Britain visiting Lidl

over Christmas that year. Aldi

Business practices[edit] Some Aldi
Aldi
practices are common in German supermarkets but largely unique to Aldi
Aldi
in other countries.[citation needed] These include the system of metal gates and turnstiles forcing customers to exit through the checkout, and charging customers for shopping bags. Until 2004, Aldi
Aldi
stores accepted only cash (since then, German stores have accepted domestic Girocard
Girocard
debit cards). Debit cards also are accepted in the United States, Great Britain, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, Australia, Slovenia, and Hungary. All 4 major credit cards are accepted in the United States
United States
as of 1 March 2016. Electronic Benefit Transfer cards are also accepted in the United States.[45] Outside of Great Britain, United States

and France, Aldi

generally does not accept credit cards, though Aldi

Aldi
Aldi
stores are noted as examples of so-called no-frills stores that often display a variety of items at discount prices, specializing in staple items, such as food, beverages, toilet paper, sanitary articles, and other inexpensive household items. Many of its products are own brands, with the number of other brands usually limited to a maximum of two for a given item. This increases sales for each article, and lets Aldi
Aldi
shops be smaller than stores with more brand choice. This practice let Aldi
Aldi
avoid price tags, even before the introduction of barcode scanners. On many of its own brands, if feasible, Aldi
Aldi
will place multiple barcodes on products to speed the check out process. Branded products carried include HARIBO
HARIBO
in Germany, Knoppers in Belgium
Belgium
and France, Marmite
Marmite
and Branston Pickle
Branston Pickle
in Great Britain; and Vegemite
Vegemite
and Milo in Australia. In the United States, major brand-name products, such as Oscar Mayer
Oscar Mayer
bacon, sometimes are offered as a 'special purchase': name-brand items that Aldi
Aldi
has received at a special price from the vendor and can offer for a reduced price. Unlike most shops, Aldi
Aldi
does not accept manufacturers' coupons, although some US stores successfully experimented with store coupons (e.g. $10 off a $25 purchase). In addition to its standard assortment, Aldi
Aldi
has weekly special offers[52], some of them on more expensive products such as electronics, tools, appliances, or computers, usually from in-house electronics brand Medion
Medion
and workzone[53] brand for tools. Discount items can include clothing, toys, flowers, and gifts. Specials have strict limits on quantities, and are for one week. Aldi's early computer offers in Germany
Germany
(such as a Commodore 64
Commodore 64
in 1987) resulted in those products selling out in a few hours.[54] Aldi
Aldi
is the largest wine retailer in Germany.[55] Some Australian stores now sell alcoholic beverages. Some US stores also sell alcoholic beverages (mainly beer and wine) where permitted by local and state laws. Aldi
Aldi
mainly sells exclusively produced, custom-branded products (often identical to and produced by major brands[56]) with brand names including Grandessa and Fit & Active. Advertising policy[edit] Aldi
Aldi
has a policy in Germany
Germany
of not advertising, apart from a weekly newsletter of special prices called " Aldi
Aldi
informs" that is distributed in stores and by direct mail and often printed in local newspapers. It claims this is a cost saving that can be passed on to consumers. In Germany, Aldi
Aldi
has never used an external advertising agency.[19] In the United States, it advertises in newspapers and on television, as well as print ads distributed in stores, and via the Internet. In Great Britain, print and television ads have appeared since May 2005. In Australia, television advertising is common and the current ads are listed on the Australian website.[57] In Belgium, print, radio and television ads started appearing in late 2017. These ads were based on the positive results of taste-tests where the chain pitted its own products against common name-brand products. Logos and branding[edit]

Variant of Aldi
Aldi
Süd Logo used internationally from 1982 up until March 2017

The two stores Nord and Süd have distinct logos with Nord displaying the entire 'A' for ALDI while Süd unveiled a logo in 1982 which displays only half. In 2006, ALDI Süd modified the logo slightly and then in March 2017, unveiled a new logo which removed the blue box line around the artistic 'A' and revealed a more rounded, 3D look for the logo as well as a new font for the word 'ALDI', further differentiating it from the ALDI Nord logo which had shared the same font for the brand until then.[58][59] Reputation[edit] Originally, Aldi
Aldi
shops were often ridiculed as being cheap shops selling low-quality goods, whose customers could not afford to shop elsewhere.[60] In the United Kingdom, Aldi
Aldi
has won Supermarket
Supermarket
of the Year two years in a row (2012/13),[61] and in 2013, Aldi
Aldi
won the Grocer of the Year Award.[62] However, in February 2015, Aldi
Aldi
narrowly lost to Waitrose for the title of Supermarket
Supermarket
of the Year 2015. In April 2015, Aldi overtook Waitrose
Waitrose
to become the United Kingdom's sixth-largest supermarket chain.[63] In February 2017, Aldi
Aldi
overtook Co-op to become the United Kingdom's fifth largest supermarket chain. [64] In the United States, due to the relatively low staffing of Aldi locations compared to other supermarket chains, Aldi
Aldi
has a reputation of starting employees out at significantly higher than minimum wage, unusual among American supermarkets.[65][66] In Ireland, Aldi
Aldi
has been accused of a "lack of corporate responsibility" to their farmer suppliers by the Irish Farmers' Association.[67] Subsidiaries and joint ventures[edit] Aldi

Liquor[edit] Aldi
Aldi
sells low cost liquor from its liquor stores. Until March 2016, Aldi

had a liquor website serving the east coast of Australia. This has now been closed down, citing it wishes to focus on expanding the supermarket chain across Australia. Diskont[edit] In Austria
Austria
through its subsidiary Hofer, Aldi
Aldi
has a joint venture with the local petrol retailer Free Energy (FE) Trading GmbH, to create some no frills petrol stations called Diskont.[69] The 66 stations are on or nearby the stores, providing self-serve unleaded or diesel fuel by card-operated pumps. These have been in operation since 2009. Criticism[edit] In May 2004, German Aldi
Aldi
stores sold garden furniture made of Indonesian Meranti wood. Because it was not able to show that it was sourced legally (70% of Indonesian timber is illegally logged), environmental organisations pressured Aldi
Aldi
to stop selling the furniture.[70] Within days Aldi
Aldi
announced that all of the timber used in its products would bear the FSC certificate, which promotes sustainable forestry.[71] In January 2013, Aldi
Aldi
Germany
Germany
was caught up in the horse meat scandal.[72] On 8 February 2013, the store group admitted that some of its frozen lasagne and spaghetti bolognese products contained 30%–100% horse meat rather than the advertised beef and that it had terminated its relationship with the supplier responsible for the adulterated product.[73] In January 2014, following a mislabelling of turkey meat as halal, Aldi
Aldi
apologised and said, " Aldi
Aldi
does not label any products as halal-certified".[74] In May 2015, Aldi
Aldi
apologised again after it sold pork products labelled as halal.[75][76] Notes[edit]
