ALDI EINKAUF GMBH & CO. OHG.

Aldi is one of the largest grocery chains in Germany and a major food retailer globally. Information about this privately-held company is rather scarce. For that reason we call your attention to the obituary of Theo Albrecht who founded the company along with his brother Karl (“Aldi” = Albrecht & Discount).

Obituary: “Theo Albrecht, Who Helped Build the Aldi Grocery Chain, Dies at 88,” Jack Ewing, The New York Times, July 29, 2010. For a very good short history of the company, a timeline and a bibliography see the following which is available to you electronically via the Western Libraries’ catalogue: “Aldi Einkauf GmBH OHG."  by D. Gasbarre, in The International Directory of Company Histories, Vol. 86, 2007. Information about Aldi is also found in these two books: The Trader Joe’s Adventure by Len Lewis (Aldi is the owner of Trader Joe’s) and Managing Retail Consumption by Barry Davies.
