Aldi says deliveries normal despite lorry driver shortage

For the first time in a decade, Aldi and Lidl lost market share to their rivals. "During the lockdowns people tended to do all their shopping in one place which favoured the big four retailers," he told the BBC."Shoppers are now more comfortable being out and about again and are happy to visit multiple stores to get what they need - that's good news for Aldi and Lidl, which typically benefit from people making those combination shops. Although no one in the grocery industry is immune to inflation, he feels Aldi has a "very unique business model", which means the supermarket chain will be able to "insulate customers far better than anyone else". Many shoppers will be tightening the purse strings this autumn and shop prices, as well as availability of products, will be a key focus for consumers. "Compared to the 2008 financial crisis, when Aldi received a massive boost, the big supermarkets are in a much better place to defend themselves, with two of the big four matching Aldi's prices on key items and all of them massively improving their economy own label ranges and investing in lower prices," he said.
