An Aldi customer has called for the supermarket to replace the biggest problem with its trolleys.
Shopper Marily, who shared on Facebook, said the store’s largest 212-liter shopping carts are “dangerous” to many users.
The 1.1m tall trolleys have been on fire since they were first released, with hundreds of shopkeepers complaining that they are “made for giants” and that shopkeepers “feel like a toddler”.
Now Marilyn has renewed calls to have several smaller trolleys available at the retail store, saying oversized carts “come up to my neck”.
“(ALDI) trolleys are so big and tall that they don’t fit very short people like me,” he said.
“They come up to my neck and it always hurts to get on the trolley to put your stuff on the checkout escalator.”
“It’s difficult for us to deal with small people. It’s different for taller people – for us, you can get a very serious neck injury if someone hits you with their cart,” he continued.
“The only reason they’re so big and deep is to deceive a shopkeeper because they don’t fill up too much.
‘They Are Dangerous’
“They are especially dangerous for the elderly and those like me who have had four spinal surgeries. I mention this every time I go to an Alti store.”
The shopkeeper said he talked to others on his Facebook page who shared similar comments.
This is not the first time that question marks have been raised on ALDI’s trolleys, which are larger than the Coles and Woolworths.
Facebook users have recently taken to social media to share their grip.
“I swear the Aldi Trolley is bigger than me,” one said.
He added: “I put as much in front of the trolley as I could. I am lucky that on many occasions tall people have seen my struggle and they have helped unload the trolley. ”
One-third said: “I’m 5’1 (155cm tall), I think I’m trying to open everything!”
Another added: “I feel like a baby pushing a trolley.”
He wrote: “I never thought it would be so short until I went to the Altis! This is so frustrating. ”
Despite the concerns, 7NEWS.com.au understands that ALDI has no plans to replace its trolleys at this point.
