Aldi buyers are furious at new checkout tips


Yesterday we reported on how an Aldi customer shared a simple but effective tip for getting Aldi staff to slow down at checkout. Posting on social media, the client explained how she asks staff to scan her items slower than they usually would before starting, so they don’t even have a chance to leave her as if she was participating in an “Olympic sport” to obtain items. packed up.

While some people liked the tip, some didn’t, and some people are quite annoyed about asking the cashier to slow down.

After sharing the post on the Manchester Evening News Facebook page, many buyers responded to dispute the tip.

Responding to the post, Andrew Martin said: “If people actually do what they’re supposed to do and put their groceries straight into their cart and then packed on the shelf provided you don’t have a problem. ”

Allan Milnes wrote: “You are not supposed to shop at Aldi checkouts. Return it to your cart and store it on tables at your own pace. This is not a new concept I remember doing this in the 90s. I’ve never packed a bag at checkout unless it’s a few items. ”

“A lot of people have said that before, but you shouldn’t ask them to slow down – just put it back in the cart / basket and put it on the shelves opposite. Aldi and Lidl are cheap for a reason – if you don’t I don’t like it, don’t shop there, ”Eden Cady-Mckellar wrote.

Brenda Newall said: “People should either pack it off the shelf after paying or do what I do drag it in the cart and pack it to the car, that’s the whole idea. ‘aldi and Lidl go through the checkout faster, I prefer it that way, no strolling around like other supermarkets. ”

A spokesperson for Aldi told 9Honey: “ALDI’s cash registers are operating at peak efficiency.

“Our staff are encouraged to review and adjust their scanning speed based on how fast or slow each customer is packing their purchases. We ask customers to return their purchases to their cart or basket once they’ve been scanned, and then pack them at their own pace. on the long bench behind the boxes.

“This not only reduces wait times, but also allows our team members to take over other responsibilities, like stocking shelves and helping customers. “
