“We are constantly looking for ways to improve the experience for our customers and are very excited to be taking our first steps into eCommerce. Our limited initial online offer allows us to set the foundations for our future program. We encourage customers to check our catalogue and website for exciting new online offers every week,” said Simon Padovani, Group Director Customer Interactions, ALDI Australia.
