This Is Why Aldi’s Groceries Are So Cheap

Aldi avoids brand names:
At most supermarkets, you'll find tons of big-brand items, but at Aldi, a whopping 90 percent of the products are private label. By avoiding brand names, Aldi can skip going through another company and offer you cheaper prices.

They have a small selection, which means smaller stores:
Did you know that Aldi only offers a selection of 900 core products? Since they don’t have national brands, they have less to warehouse and display in the store. This means having smaller stores compared to most other grocery retailers, and in return, smaller rent prices!

They take less time restocking shelves:
Aldi's design was specifically made for minimal stocking and upkeep. Other stores may have beautiful displays, but employees have to constantly restock them. At Aldi, , making it much easier for employees to restock.

They use boxes, milk racks and pre-packaged produce:
Boxes aren’t the only way Aldi saves time (and money). Products such as milk and even produce help reduce the upkeep at an Aldi store. Milk already comes in racks, and produce is pre-packaged and ready for checkout.

They use energy-efficient lighting:
Aldi announced its initiative to save money by remodeling some of the stores. A modern design (and even using open ceilings) will bring natural lighting into the store, making it environmentally friendly, too. They’ll even use recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.

They have fewer workers:
Aldi will often schedule only two or three staff at a time. That's nothing compared to the number of employees you'll see at other markets. With the way Aldi is designed, not as many workers are needed to stock the shelves or keep things in order. This also allows the store to pay those few employees a decent paycheck.

Aldi customers bring their own bags:
Aldi doesn’t bother buying as many plastic bags as other stores, thanks to their bag policy. If you end up using an Aldi plastic bag, you’ll have to pay for it. This is to encourage customers to bring their own bags—keeping the store a green environment and putting money back into customer pockets.

They don’t have TV ads:
Have you ever seen a Walmart or Target ad on TV? Yes. Aldi? Not ever, actually. That’s because Aldi saves the money to do what they do best—bring you cheap prices.

They have a smart shopping-cart rental system:
No need to have someone working the shopping carts all the time with a system like Aldi’s! In order to use a cart, you must put a coin in the cart to unlock it. This gives people an incentive to return the cart and get their money back. Didn't know about that? Well, here they are next time.

They're about consumers, not profits:
Unlike most supermarkets, Aldi doesn’t charge suppliers for shelf space and keeps their terms simple. , Aldi claims it wants “to suck the profitability out of the [supermarket] industry in favour of the consumer.” Every decision the company makes always has the customer in mind, and it pays off.
