The One Aldi Display You Should Never Mess With On Your Own
By Stacie Adams
Grocery stores are very meticulous about how items are arranged on shelves and most stores also utilize promotional displays to highlight popular items that are virtually guaranteed to be high earners. Store displays are a famous feature found in Aldi too, one of which has particularly posed a dilemma to patrons.
LaCroix, a flavored sparkling water brand, is so popular that it has inspired cult-like behavior in fans. Perhaps this explains the questionable behavior of Aldi shoppers when on the hunt for LaCroix, a practice that has been brought to light by Reddit user u/hydra596 who accuses Aldi shoppers of being "addicted to Jenga."
Their post showed an image of a picked-through display, which resulted from shoppers trying to find their favorite flavor within the stack. However, in this case, it appears that shoppers should ask for help when confronted by a strategically arranged display so the chaos can be controlled and the customers can get what they want from the display.
