Aldi is a leading global discount supermarket chain with over 9,000 stores in over 18 countries, and an estimated turnover of more than €50bn. 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; it is one of the world’s largest privately owned companies (wiki).
There are 406 shops in the Netherlands build since 1975.
Aldi has a mobile virtual network operator in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, called Aldi Talk.
Aldi belongs to the cheapest supermarkets in the Netherlands. Some people might ridicule the shops for selling cheap low-quality food. It is up to every customer what they expect from a supermarket.
