ESSEN, Germany (Nov 15) – After 16 months of preparation German mass merchant Aldi opened its first four outlets in Switzerland. Before the end of the year Aldi-Switzerland, a 100 % subsidiary of Aldi-Süd, wants to have a total of ten outlets.

The first four outlets are located in Altenheim, Amriswil, Gebenstorf und Weinfelden. Each of them offer a total of some 700 assorted products for daily use that are especially conceived for the Swiss market (editor’s note: mainly food- but also non-food products). Will bicycle products follow? In Scandinavia Aldi is already offering bicycles made by German Mifa AG.
