Mülheim - Aldi Süd will soon be a little more modest again.
The discounter is now relying on simpler and cheaper shopping trolleys.
Instead of the comfort handles on the side, the new trolleys are now waiting for customers with traditional handle tubes.
You will look in vain for deposit deposit boxes, mobile phone holders or fold-out reading magnifiers, which are now part of the good form in industry giants such as Edeka or Rewe.
In addition, the new, significantly slimmed-down cars are no longer gray, but silver.
Aldi: Comprehensive change in shopping carts
There is also a change in the coin deposit system.
The corresponding slide is no longer installed in the center, but on the side.
When it comes to child seats, the discounter is now also more modest.
You are now green.
When expanding, customers receive a new warning.
After that, the maximum weight is now 15 kilos.
Alternatively, the seat should also be able to be used for fruit or vegetables.
The Aldi strategists have also deleted the usual bag hook.
After all: the ball-bearing, quiet rollers are still on board.
This means that the trolley can be pushed just as easily as its predecessor.
Overall, however, Aldi will no longer play in a league with Edeka or Hit in its shopping carts.
Aldi: New shopping trolleys are cheaper
The reasons for this are not yet known. Industry experts suspect that the Lidl competitor will simply want to drive cheaper with its trolleys from the industry leader Wanzl from Leipheim near Ulm in the future. Simple shopping carts usually cost between 150 and 200 euros. The high-end variants in the large supermarket chains are priced quickly by 50 to 100 euros above. The Aldi buyers are quickly dealing with amounts in the millions.
Aldi * traditionally pays a lot of attention to its trolleys.
Recently, reports had accumulated that customers had repeatedly complained about stiff shopping trolleys.
The background to the problems, however, was not a defective car, but a new anti-theft device.
There are magnetic strips in the floor at the transition to the public area.
It blocks the wheels as soon as a customer leaves the specified area.
In order to release the blocked wheels, the trolleys have to be pushed over the carpet in the entrance area.
