BATAVIA, Ill. (KAKE) - German-owned discount supermarket chain Aldi announced last week that they will be reducing the prices on over 250 items to help customers combat inflation.

The store says Aldi is planning to pass along $100 million in savings through Labor Day by further dropping its everyday low prices on more than 250 items. This price drop will nearly double savings from last year, building on the announcement last May reducing prices on products to save shoppers more than $60 million, per the press release.

“Aldi is always looking for ways to help customers save money, but with more experts warning of persistent inflation, the time was right to deliver even greater discounts on our already low prices for the second year in a row,” said Dave Rinaldo, President at Aldi U.S. “We don’t want food prices to hold people back from getting together with friends and family or spending time outdoors this season.”

Aldi’s cost reductions will be applied to seasonal items such as picnic necessities, BBQ essentials, travel-ready snacks and better-for-you foods, the company says. 

Earlier this year, Aldi also announced it will be adding another 800 stores in the United States by the end of 2028. 

The price reductions will only last a limited time through July 10, 2024. A full list of the items can be found here
