ALDI Adelaide complaints – new stores
Since the first group of stores opened there have been online complains that there is not enough variety and the stores are too small. Some people are disappointed. Comment below at the bottom of this page if you like?
The Berri store is open and the Aldinga store at 209 Port Rd has been approved. It should be open by the middle of next year.
ALDI Marion opened today and more stores are opening by the end of 2016. ALDI Aldinga was recently given development approval so expect to see some building activity there soon. The current catalogue in the junk mail says that ALDI Smithfield, Gilles Plains and West Lakes are opening soon. Gilles Plains Shopping Centre is a complete mess at the moment around where the small specialty shops are being built/finished/open, but the rest does not look too bad.
ALDI stores at St. Agnes and Mount Barker are now open as of yesterday. Modbury and Noarlunga stores open on the 16th March.

When does ALDI open in Adelaide?
The media is currently reporting that ALDI has finished building its Regency Park warehouse. The company’s first Adelaide stores will open on the 3rd of February, 2016.
Apparently the stores to open in February will be Seaford Heights, Parafield Gardens, Hallett Cove and Woodcroft. In March it will be Modbury, Noarlunga, Mount Barker and St Agnes, according to The Sydney Morning Herald today in Aldi favours shock and awe over surprise in SA invasion.
Retail Assistant positions began to be advertised on Friday and yesterday on Seek and ALDI Careers. The company is looking for approximately 100 retail assistants at the moment, according to media stories.

Another store to add to the list below. The media reports today that ALDI is moving in now at the Kensington Park Shopping Centre, which was vacated by a previous supermarket. Red tape prevents them setting up in the eastern suburbs at the moment unless it is in a former supermarket previously approved for use as such.
April commented below to say that she saw an ALDI sign at Woodcroft Shopping Centre. Keep that in mind when you read the list below? And Cassandra commented in this site’s Facebook post on the topic to say that “Noarlunga one is being built into and part of the next extension of the Colonnades Shopping Centre. It’s happening NOW!”. Keep it coming? I need to fill in a few blanks in the list.

2) Further to yesterday’s update in a way, Supermarket monsters: How Coles and Woolworths suffocate us looks at how ALDI is said to be no different than the other supermarkets, but only according to the author of a new book.
Although Woolies said last week that they will sign the new Competition and Consumer (Industry Codes—Food and Grocery) Regulation 2015, the media is now saying today that ALDI has signed and begun implementing it as of today (even though it is still before the Senate).
It is merely a voluntary code that only applies to grocery retailers and wholesalers and their suppliers in this country. Payments by supermarkets to suppliers could still end up being made months later? Plenty of local produce could be ignored in favour of inferior, cheaper, imported produce still? Under the funding promotions section of the Code the retailer can still push all sorts of costs for their activities onto the supplier if the agreement has that in it (anywhere else that would be considered to be unacceptable).
Basically the whole Code is a reflection of the crooked activities of parasitic supermarkets that makes for interesting reading that Australians should be thoroughly disgusted about. This is not to imply that ALDI’s conduct is in some way inappropriate towards suppliers but merely a reflection on the industry as a whole. And of course a complaint will be ignored if there is insufficient evidence to support the claims made. ALDI has a complaints page on their web site with more information at Supplier complaints handling and dispute resolution guidelines.
Aldi claims that the reason they are not going to open shops on the eastern side of the city is due to zoning regulations. This is despite the fact that there are supermarkets of various sizes all over the place there. It sounds more like they want to build outside of commercial and mixed-use zones, away from all the mini-marts, Foodland stores and Woolies and Coles?
We also need to consider that the increasing population of foreigners there may not be interested in Aldi when there are so many independent shops offering a variety of local foods? The latter is where you see plenty of them doing their shopping if you visit that side of town and look at who shops at supermarkets compared to smaller independent shops. More about Aldi’s claims about red tape is at the Herald Sun web site in Why discount grocer Aldi isn’t setting up shop in Adelaide’s leafy east.
Choice has conducted a grocery price survey and found that Aldi is the cheapest supermarket for groceries in Australia. They had the same result when they last conducted the survey in 2009. You can read more about it at the Which supermarket has the cheapest groceries? page on the Choice web site. You may, of course, find that your own experience leads to a different result depending on what the “average” basket of goods is that you buy.
Aldi has today started receiving applications for managers at its South Australian stores to open in 2016. General staff can apply for work there from September. Links are below to access more information for applications.
There has been some speculation today that a yet to be approved site south of the city at 198 Belair Road, on the corner of Angas Road, in Hawthorn may become an Aldi store. The company has stated publicly that they have bought the site.

A potential warning for future Aldi Adelaide shoppers. They charge a 0.5% surcharge for debit and credit card use. Link: Aldi under fire for fee disclosure.
Media buzz today suggests that 5 regional stores are being looked at by ALDI. These may include one at Victor Harbor (probably on the site where protesters do not want it), another at Berri, and another on the Yorke Peninsula.
A media story today suggests that ALDI have confirmed that they are indeed going to open a store at St Agnes in early 2016.
Original post: 22/10/2014
Construction on a $70 million ALDI Adelaide distribution warehouse at Gallipoli Drive in Regency Park was due to start during October 2014.
Although there has been some talk in the media this year that up to 50 stores will be opened, these are the current proposed ones. These will gradually open in the next two years. Some of them depend on shopping centre redevelopment projects either currently underway or starting in 2015.
ALDI Adelaide stores
- Seaford Heights
- Parafield Gardens
- Hallett Cove
- Gilles Plains
- St Agnes
Do I have to pay a membership fee to join ALDI?
This will be a common question by the time they open and the answer is no you do not pay a membership fee. You just walk through the door for free and start shopping. It is not like Costco where you pay a membership fee.
