Aldi is breaking new ground in Switzerland. For the first time, the discounter has opened a branch in the middle of a train station. The shop is so small that it is officially allowed to carry the title of "smallest Aldi in the world". A particularly high turnover seems to be guaranteed.
Aldi Suisse opened the unique mini-store In Lausanne. It's size is just 240 m2. In comparison; the usual Aldi branches are four times that size. Customers can shop here from 5:30 to midnight, Monday through to Sunday. In Switzerland, opening hours are just as strict as they are in Germany.
The focus is on proprietary brands and foods that customers most often need in everyday life. These include milk, mineral water, pasta, fresh fruit, vegetables, yogurt and canned food.
