It’s One of the World’s Biggest Retailers
Aldi might not be a household name in the U.S., but it’s well known around the globe. In the 2019 Global Powers of Retail Report, which identifies the 250 largest retailers in the world by retail revenue, Aldi ranked eighth globally, finishing ahead of Target and Home Depot. Walmart topped the list; Costco came in a distant second.
In the U.S., Aldi’s 1,800 locations outnumber better-known supermarket chains including Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Publix, Meijer, Food Lion and Giant. Albertsons (thanks to its acquisition of Safeway) and Kroger each operate more locations than Aldi.
It’s all about doing it yourself, next…..
