ALDI Corner Store - Australia
Following our nationwide redesign of ALDI Australia’s stores and the design of ALDI’s retail format for their entry into the Chinese market, Landini Associates were engaged to design a local, smaller trading format for ALDI Australia, ALDI Corner Store.
The concept first launched at North Sydney in July 2021 with a planned national roll out.
ALDI Corner Store locations can be found in North Sydney, Darlinghurst, Melbourne CBD and Prahran, with more stores set to follow in 2022.
Landini and ALDI decided to reinvent how smaller store formats are interpreted in Australia. The brief was to interpret the traditional ALDI model into a new format that is genuinely local, uniquely different, but recognisably ALDI. So, Good Different!
Rather than featuring neighbourhood photographs or signs declaring the location, each ALDI Corner Store site will be designed to celebrate its community through strategic local art partnerships. These artist collaborations honour differences while embracing operational affinities and create an overall atmosphere that is consistent with the ALDI brand.
A key intention of the design concept is to celebrate each store’s surrounding neighbourhood, as well as ALDI’s Food proposition, amazing quality and the best possible prices.
