ALDI customers “unbelievable” act angers shoppers

An ALDI shopper has furiously called out another customer after she caught them doing something others said they never thought “someone could do”.

While it is not unusual for shoppers to open a carton of eggs to check if they are all intact before buying, one woman was caught acting strangely while standing at the display.

Taking to the ALDI Mum’s Facebook group, the poster said: “I noticed her swapping eggs from one box to another but I wasn't sure what she was doing until she put the cage free box back.

The woman soon realised what the sneaky shopper was doing: “She swapped caged ones with cage free”.

Cage free eggs are typically marked at a much higher price point than caged eggs and are considered a better choice by shoppers who are conscious of their purchases.

The woman says she alerted the manager, but the culprit had already fled.

“It’s not fair to the person who is going pay for them not knowing what’s inside,” the annoyed customer wrote.

A number of horrified ALDI shoppers responded to the post, with one saying: “That’s so bad and frustrating that people would do that, I always try to buy free range eggs which aren’t cheap so I wouldn’t be happy!”

Another added: “It would never occur to me that someone could do this!”

“Unbelievable. I’ve heard everything now. The things people do,” a third person wrote.
