Aldi Price Increases?
Last edited 21/04/2016 - 18:46
Someone suggested to me that Aldi products have increased in price over the last year. I have noticed one or two products have increased, but I'm quite slack at observing prices these days. Anyone noticed this phenomena?
"Some products, absolutely."
"Bumped up the prices for almost everything by 25 cents or 50 cents."
"They stopped advertising their prices online, so obviously they are hiding something."
Thanks everyone for your contributions.
So. The info submitted to my post is:
Price increased: (13)
Flying Power energy
Deli originals Gherkins European style
3L Australian milk
Australian Shredded chicken
Australian chicken Duets (Alfredo, Mushroom and Black Pepper, Cordon Bleu)
Australian Brannons cheaper range burger patties (4pk)
Australian cheap range of thin sausages (12pk)
4 pack salami
Weekly specials (hardware, etc.,)
Nuts, prunes, etc
Price decrease: (1)
Australian Soft drink bottles
Mostly Australian, so currency should be a big issue in these price increases.
13 + 3? - 1 = 15+? Price Increases
From the data it's starting to confirm my hypothesis. There seems to be an overall price increase, but it's not definitely uniform.
Finally, something to give hope for the future:
"The cheap competition is about to join them from Europe (Lidl) so they are maximizing margins while they have the opportunity. Prices will drop again only once Lidl forces them to."
Not until 2018/2019 apparently.
