German discount retailer giant Aldi has announced that it is going to close 32 stores in Denmark, after the retailer made a loss for the second consecutive year, according to a report in ESM.
According to sources, the reason behind the decision was a reported loss of 246 million DKK ($37.1 million) in 2016, which was still 54 million DKK ($81.6 million) more than the previous year.
According to Thomas Bang, Aldi’s spokesperson, the retailer still believes in the concept of high quality at low prices.
Aldi spokesperson Thomas Bang said: “We recognise that we need to give our customers a better shopping experience than we have done so far”.
Mr Bang added that Aldi had closed outdated stores in order to be able to open “new, large and modern shops”.
A modernization plan for 2017-2018 is said to be being considered.
