Second Aldi Warehouse in Australia

Aldi Süd (Aldi South) is buidling a second distribution warehouse in Australia.
The discounter is investing some 50 million Australian dollars (€ 28.1 million)
in a 43.000 sq.m. distribution centre on a 30 hectare site in the west of the
city of Melbourne. It was only the end of January when Aldi opened its first
branch in the fifth continent, causing great excitement in the media.

By now
the Mülheim firm is operating 18 sites which are supplied from the warehouse
in the south of Sydney. Aldi wants to set up a network of 100 branches by 2003.
