Sorry folks but there will be no ALDI snow gear this 2022 winter.
The discount supermarket revealed the news on their social media today. Supply chain issues have hit the retail market hard and while snow gear is important to some, essential grocery items are more important to others and ALDI have prioritised accordingly.
They released a statement online.
“We know many customers look forward to our annual Snow Gear Special Buys and we are disappointed to share it will not be in stores this year.
Due to supply chain issues that have impacted retailers across the country, our priority has been ensuring essential grocery items are available on shelves. Deep disruption in our supply chains over a number of months has meant that we have needed to make difficult decisions to make sure grocery is prioritised, and the removal of this year’s Snow Gear Special Buys was a hard, but responsible option.
We know the Snow Gear is a much anticipated Special Buys event. It is never our intention to cause disappointment, but we hope our customers understand the need to prioritise essentials in a time that has been a logistical challenge.
We love the Snow Gear Special Buys and can’t wait to be a part of customers’ snow holiday plans with top quality gear at low prices in 2023.”
