In response to consumer demand, Aldi has lodged a license application to sell liquor in its NSW stores.
The supermarket chain said it is already selling liquor in ACT and Victoria, but is ready to service the NSW market.
“We aim to provide our customers with a convenient shopping experience by providing all their shopping needs under one roof,” the retailer said.
“A decision as to whether ALDI will sell alcohol in NSW will not be made until the outcome of these applications is known.”
According to Aldi, it will be selling a range of alcoholic products that are exclusive to its stores and will be priced at the same as those sold in Victoria and ACT.
Earlier this year, Aldi partnered with DrinkWise Australia, to encourage responsible alcohol consumption.
In addition, it will also join the Local Liquor Accords in the areas where its NSW stores will be located. Liquor Accords are voluntary industry-based partnerships working in local communities to introduce practical solutions to alcohol related problems.
