Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: As summer draws to a close and families begin preparing to go back to school or university, August and September can represent financially challenging months for many. However, with fifteen consecutive months as the UK’s cheapest supermarket, families can rest assured that they can rely on us for great quality products at the lowest possible prices, and that we’ll continue to support our customers in these testing times.”
