Aldi Customer Explains You Can Get Checkout Staff To Slow Down

Aldi Customer Explains You Can Get Checkout Staff To Slow Down

We all know that Aldi supermarket packers have a knack for whizzing your food over that conveyor belt at lightening speed.

In fact, The Sun report that Aldi cashiers are 40 per cent speedier than any other supermarket.

But if you find the pace of your packing experience a little overwhelming then there is a solution, according to avid Aldi shoppers.

Posting on Aldi Mums Facebook group (yes, it is real, and we need to join immediately) people started sharing the rather extra hacks they implemented to slow their cashier down.

One person said they often scrunched up the labels on food packaging so it would take them longer to scan - a cruel but rather cunning plan.

Meanwhile, another suggested there was a simpler resolution. Tell them, of course.

"You can ask them to slow down, I do. They don't mind. And never had a rude checkout operator either," an Aldi fanatic wrote.

As another penned: "I always ask the checkout workers at my local Aldi to slow down a bit, so I don't get overwhelmed.

So, basically, if they're scanning your stuff quickly then it's more than likely they think you're a seasoned pro who can handle the pace.

Importantly, Aldi also doesn't actively encourage packing at the tills, because it fits it supermarkets with packing shelves.

Replying to a customer on its official Twitter account, Aldi said: "We ask that customers put their goods back in their trolley once they have been scanned at the checkout. We provide a packing shelf away from the till for customers to pack their shopping."

This changes everything.
