Aldi shopper's plea to change trolleys so she can buy food without husband

A loyal Aldi shopper is urging the supermarket to change its trolleys.

Dianne King is 4ft 2ins and says they are so deep she can’t shop without her husband there to help.

The woman from South Melbourne, Australia, has turner syndrome – a chromosomal disorder that affects one in 2,000 females.

But the disability support worker says her pleas for alternative trolleys have so far fallen on deaf ears.

Now she wants the German giant to listen and help smaller shoppers get around the store and unpack without embarrassment.

“If I quickly need to drop in there I make sure I don’t need a trolley but it’s frustrating when I know I need to get a few things,” she told the The Herald Sun.

“I put it off until my husband is home to go with me, unfortunately.

“I’m just really disappointed, not just for myself, but for other members of the community in a similar situation

“I want a good outcome for the issue to be addressed, not just for me but the community. There is always someone worse off than yourself.”

Now she wants Aldi to listen after two years of complaining.

She added: “Having short stature as a disability – it’s not the short stature that’s the issue – it’s the barriers it creates that’s an issue.

“I don’t usually come up against many barriers but I’m struggling to get an outcome from this one. Nothing has changed in two years.

“I’d just like to get Aldi to acknowledge the problem and get a solution.”

In 2016, shoppers joked the “super-sized” trolleys were better suited to giants.

Mirror Online have contacted Aldi for comment.

Meanwhile as we previously reported, a mum has shared her ‘genius’ Aldi hack that takes away the stress of packing quickly at the tills.

The tip also helps save time getting shopping in the car and has now inspired other customers to give it a go and “win the war on the fast checkout assistant”.

The budget supermarket has a reputation for its speedy cashiers, which can make the checkout process less than relaxing as shoppers try to keep up bagging their items.

And the chain previously revealed it contributes to why it can keep its prices so low.

But one mum’s advice is being hailed a brilliant solution.

She explained how she uses two large plastic tubs with handles to hold her groceries when she visits the store.
