  ALDI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aldi is the largest wine retailer in Germany.
Aldi was, however, a latecomer to barcode scanners, and many stores only added them in 2004; previously, cashier clerks would manually enter a three-digit code for each item from memory (Aldi Nord) or the price (Aldi Süd).
Aldi stores often have limited opening hours, such as where restricted by law (until 18:30 weeknights and 14:00 Saturdays) in Germany until these laws were relaxed somewhat in 1996 and 2004.
