Why ALDI’s latest Special Buy will be worth queuing for

Fans of ALDI have learnt to love most of the items that come out of the grocery chain’s bi-weekly Special Buys range, and its latest release may just have ticked a few boxes for those looking to expand their furniture range. 

Among the chaos of waiting in line and rushing to find a good bargain, customers can invest in an item never-before-seen at ALDI – a $299 sofa bed. 

The affordable price means it may fly off shelves faster than anticipated so it's better to get in quickly. 

“The competitive retail, on-trend design and quality construction will make this a popular Special Buy,” an ALDI spokesperson told news.com.au

The couch comes with a solid wood frame and legs, durable fabric upholstery, and two bolster cushions with removable covers. 

To turn the sofa into bed, it comes with a click-clack mechanism. 

The item comes in two colours – grey and cream – and if you are planning to get your hands on one, the German retailer is urging shoppers to ensure they have someone to help them. 

“Product is likely to cause injury to customer if risk controls are not utilised,” it specifically states on the ALDI website. 

Only some stores across the country will stock this Special Buys deal, including: 

  • Aurora

  • Bell Park

  • Bentleigh
