Norman Morris, Industry Communications Director at Roy Morgan Research, said it appears supermarkets must try and please everyone all of the time to remain coemptive.
“As the German discount giant continues its Australian expansion, its influence is growing,” Morris said.
“Since it moved into South Australia at the beginning of 2016, the proportion of SA residents who mainly or sometimes shop there has shot up to 19%. In Western Australia, where it opened in June, a similar trend appears to be taking shape. It will be interesting to see whether this increased customer volume takes ALDI’s satisfaction to even greater heights in months to come,” he said.
Woolworths will be removing all single-use plastic bags from its Australian stores by 20 June 2018.
