ALDI is slashing prices on over 250 items to help shoppers save on rising grocery costs this summer.
The already affordable grocery chain set a goal to save Americans $60million in an effort to fight inflation and other economic pressure.
The company announced the exciting change in a press release and said executives are defying economic pressures to provide more savings.
“We don’t want high grocery prices to get in the way of Americans doing what they love this summer, so we’re taking charge to champion value in a way that only ALDI can,” said ALDI U.S. Co-President Dave Rinaldo.
“We’re reducing our already low prices on some of the season’s most popular items to make sure summer plans aren’t disrupted.”
ALDI made sure to reduce picnic-friendly snacks as well as more substantial items like frozen fish and meat.
“Whether our shoppers are traveling, heading to a game, or enjoying time by the pool, we are committed to offering quality food and essentials at the lowest prices possible so they can enjoy life outside the grocery aisle,” Rinaldo said.
While most of the price reductions provided in the release range from 50 cents to one dollar, the savings could really add up for the average shopper.
For example, one item that took a huge hit was the Fremont Fish Market Value Pack Tilapia Fillets.
The new price slash will bring them down from $8.99 to $8.19, which is a great steal for a weeknight dinner.
The fish could be enjoyed after a lovely charcuterie board of Emporium Selection Havarti Cheese and Southern Grove Oven Roasted Almonds that are both now only $2.49 and $4.19 respectively.
And these are just the beginning of a long list of items that ALDI has yet to reveal.
The incredible update comes as a result of ALDI’s recent Price Promise that was made to customers.
While increasing costs have riddled Americans with anxiety and despair, the grocery retailer affirmed to shoppers that it would do its best to keep them afloat.
“Saving you money is what we do best,” wrote ALDI CEO Jason Hart.
“And in times like these, I’m incredibly proud to underscore this commitment to you: No matter what happens in the world around us, ALDI will always be the low-price leader in every community we serve.”
Meanwhile, Aldi has been discontinuing items that shoppers need to be aware of.
This includes the Season’s Choice Potato Puffs, which have been replaced by the Crispy Tots.
A fan said that the ingredients and the nutritional facts are different.
The old ingredients consisted of potatoes, vegetable oil, corn flour, dextrose, onion, spice extractive, salt, and dihydrogen phosphate, according to a screenshot posted by online database Open Food Facts.
Aldi has discontinued two snacks under the Specialty Selected brand: the Emmentaler and Gouda Cheese Bites.
Aldi on the label described both chips that sold in 4.4-ounce bags as having sweet and creamy cheese flavors.
Vista Bay Margarita Hard Seltzers is another item Aldi has taken off the shelves, with fans saying they would cherish the remaining few left.
Luckily, other flavors are still available including black cherry, lime, ruby grapefruit, and raspberry.
The Pueblo Lindo Taquitos chips have been taken off the shelves too.
Aldi sold them in 9.9-ounce bags and it featured a twist of both chili and lime flavors.
Also, they were rolled in zesty to give them an extra kick.
