Hi all, Well a friend of mine on facebook shared this with aldi. Complete rip off Be aware of it.
I have today received a Parking charge notice from Parking Eye for using an ALID car park on the Ring Road Stourbridge while shopping in their store.
My wife started using this store a few months ago and has been try to get me to do the same; I usually shop at Tesco who have a free car park just a few 100 yards away. I gave into my wife’s suggestion and use the store for the first time. I was impressed that and even returned at the same time a week later (I will expect a notice for that date as too?).
It was not clear to me that I needed to do anything about parking at the store and this strange system is totally alien to me. I have had no such problems at Tesco just round the corner or any other store in my life time. With this being such an unusual system I would expect till staff to bring it to my attention or issue a notice to warn valued customers. I had no idea I would be so inconvenienced by shopping at ALDI. If I have to pay this fee, this trip will have cost me almost double what I spent at the store. I was also under the impression it was not legal to make a profit from store car parks?
Be interested to hear from ALDI and others experiencing this same injustice.
