Goods jam: Discounter Aldi Switzerland has to put off non-food customers

Vacuum cleaners, batteries, shower heads: discounters lure customers into the branches with non-food products and campaigns like these. Lidl and Aldi are also bolstering their sales. The non-food products are often manufactured in low-wage Asian countries. And there is currently stuck with supplies for the Swiss discount customers – greetings from the mega-traffic jam around the container freighter Ever Given.

For a few weeks now, freight has been accumulating in the container ports. In many places in world trade, this leads to delayed deliveries of goods, including at Aldi Suisse, reports the discounter. Country boss Jérôme Meyer personally warns in a message that his customers have to be patient: “In the past few weeks we have seen more and more delivery delays in the non-food sector.” It was therefore decided to offer a new notification service for affected products with immediate effect.
