ALDI Targeting Western Australia
German supermarket chain ALDI is setting its sights on Western Australia, and is inviting local suppliers to learn more about the opportunity of working with ALDI Australia.
ALDI Australia is holding a supplier open day on Friday 7 March. The day will explain ALDI’s Smarter Shopping approach and the various opportunities it will create when it enters the Western Australian market.
To be held at the Fraser Suites in East Perth, the day will commence at 8.30am with an introduction to the ALDI business and its approach to retail. This will be followed by a ‘Meet the Buyers’ session, where suppliers can find out more from some of the buyers and members of the ALDI team.
“Since 2001, ALDI Australia has made a commitment to the communities in which it operates by offering the Smarter Shopping experience – guaranteed high quality products at incredibly low prices every day,” said Andrew Starr, managing director Western Australia.
“By doing this, we have successfully developed as an organisation, thus resulting in increased employment and growth opportunities for Australian communities.
“Our entry into the Western Australian market will mean hundreds of millions in capital investment, and over 1,250 permanent jobs over the rollout of 70 stores across the state. We are looking to engage with local suppliers who will join us in delivering the Smarter Shopping experience to our customers.”
“Our success comes down to the loyalty of our customers and the long-term partnerships we create with our suppliers who share our vision of delivering high quality products at exceptional value,” said Mr. Starr.
