When People Think We’re Aldi, 2nd edition

When People Think We're Aldi

How we feel after we get a message saying “could you ship this to me?”

A while back, we posted a collection of e-mails we’ve received from people who think we’re Aldi. This is in spite of the face that our about page, our contact page, our disclosure policy page, and our tagline all go to great lengths to note that we’re not Aldi.

We still get e-mails.

Here, again, is a sampling of some of the message we have received. As before, names, addresses, and phone numbers have been removed to protect the innocent. We have, however, left in every typo.


From someone in Michigan:

From an American in Indiana:

We need one of these stores in [LOCATION] In.we have no grocery store in our town.you would get alot of business cause we are 10 minutes from a Toyota plant. I shop at your store in [LOCATION] Indiana every friday.havent found anything that I don’t like.


From an American:

I enjoy all Aldi products, I shop there all the time. Today I tried your ice cream for the first time.. I must say I was quit disappointed. Although the ice cream  tasted pretty good. I was disappointed to see there was approximately 2 teaspoons of the chocolate tracks on a 1.5 quart container .Perhaps there was a malfunction in the process. I was hoping that you were as good as blue bunny tracks ice cream, but that may be asking too much. Now im hesitating to try any of your other ice creams.


From another American:

I try very hard to reduce packaging, but I got suckered into buying Little Salad Bar Pineapple Poblano Guacamole.  Even though it was in a plastic dish (which I would recycle, but I would rather “reduce” packaging) I bought it because it sounded so good.  Actually, it’s delicious, good natural ingredients.  However, the false bottom, almost like a donut hole, on the plastic dish makes one think that one is getting more product than is actually contained.  Waste of plastic, deceptive, and I will not but your product again.  Can’t you just be honest and upfront instead of wasteful (a lot of plastic for very little food) and deceptive? You may get away with it sometimes for those who don’t care, but it will back-fire on you by those who put thought into their purchases.


From someone in England:

I bought the festoon lights as a christmas present for my daughter.  She has just got home to London and there is a cover missing off one of the lights.  I have looked and I havnt got a receipt but it does clearly say Aldi on the box.  Can I either get a replacement cover or a replacement set of lights please


From… someone:

your heat and serve sausage links (breakfast best) had several packages with 7 to 9 links (packages state 10) ……..shame on you. Your quality control needs help.   I’m not paying for less than stated number…………………


And someone else:
