    Default Creepiest Supermarket Chain Ever has Been Secretly Filming Female Shoppers

    Oh, great: female customers shopping at German discount supermarket chain Aldi Süd were being secretly filmed in what appears to be a massive, highly-organized spying campaign regulated by branch managers.

    According to SPIEGEL, "The managers were especially interested in filming women in short skirts and and low-cut tops as they bent down to pick out items from refrigerator chests or shelves." Not creepy enough for you? Well, the branch managers actually burnt the films onto CDs and distributed them amongst the staff. Awesome teamwork, guys!


    Lest you think these managers were solely interested in T&A, SPIEGEL reports that Aldi Süd employees also set up mobile miniature cameras in "places where staff don't come into any contact with customers and where there were no notices alerting people to camera surveillance," including warehouses and central storage facilities. They also installed cameras around cash registers, which SPIEGEL says clearly show information imputed into payment card machines, athough Aldi Süd argued that they were positioned in such a way "that the typing in of PIN numbers can in no circumstances be seen."


    The perverted nanny state supermarket responded by saying their cameras "are only used to protect our staff, customers and suppliers from dangerous situations and hold-ups, for preventive purposes and to protect property." They refused to comment specifically on the sexual harassment allegations but said "Mistakes by an individual employee can't be ruled out." So basically: it's not Aldi Süd's fault if an employee (or several, at several branches, who distributed x-rated burnt CDs of unknowing women to several more employees, etc etc) fucked up! Jeez, running a supermarket is hard. Give them a break!

    Well what the hell did they expect when they're dressed like that in a grocery store?

    Well if you've ever been to an Aldi's the last thing to expect if the fruit to be fresh.



    Oh wait, you weren't talking about melons, my bad.

    Damn. I shop at Aldi in Germany. Thank goodness it's been in winter, and I wear scarves.
    I am going there soon again in some weeks.

    Are American Aldis a separate chain? The ones I've known are pretty damn nasty.

    Greysfang, I have to admit that a lot of the American Aldi stores leave something to be desired. I know I've said it before, but the one I go to is spotless. However, the one near DC (Langley Park), and the one in Tinton Falls/Eatontown NJ are pretty bad.

    It's kind of difficult for me to imagine that there is somebody in Aldi's peeping people on hidden cameras. Mainly because everybody who works in the store is pulling double duty. Not only do the cashiers ring up stuff, but then they rush out and straighten up aisles and go into the back to bring out more stuff to re-stock shelves. I don't see how they would have to time to be doing all that stuff and also getting their jollies checking people out at the same time.

    As far as I know, the Albrecht family/consortium owns both the German and American stores. And somehow they are also tied to Trader Joe's, too.
