ALDI supermarket has announced an exciting new change coming to all stores across Australia.

The German retailer provides large 212-litre carts – which are 1.1m high – for shoppers to use, which have since gained a lot of criticism from elderly, pregnant and short people.

Now ALDI has announced it will soon be rolling out half trolleys for customers to do smaller grocery shops.

“We recognise that customers are looking for greater convenience when they visit our stores, as it’s almost impossible not to pick up the excellent value products on offer,” the retailer said.

“That’s why we’re introducing smaller trolleys across all our locations, so our customers can more efficiently pick up products while doing smaller grocery shops.”

Shoppers celebrated the news with many welcoming the change which will see their shopping habits change.

“Finally! I almost fall into the big ones to reach the bottom,” one person wrote.

“Great news for people who have had hip and shoulder replacement surgery,” another commented.

“This is great, I also love the big trolleys at Aldi. They are always in good condition and the height is more comfortable,” someone else welcomed.

The exciting news comes just months after ALDI introduced shopping baskets in their stores.
