What you think about: Aldi’s acquisition of Winn-Dixie and Harveys

We asked what you thought about the recent acquisition — here’s what you had to say

Aldi just acquired Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket stores. We asked: Are we going to see more industry consolidation like this? (Especially with the Kroger, Albertsons merger deal looming?)

Here’s what you had to say: 

Lori Garrard, Store Manager, All American Quality Foods

Until the FTC gets involved. Too big is just that: too much in one person’s basket. Without the little guy to mix it up, we become stale and the consumer pays the price.

Donald King

There’s a finite seamount of business, regardless of segment. There’s a finite amount of disposable income. As society plays and changes, it’s valued, business has to adapt in an effort to stay in business. Just ask Kmart. Consolidation will happen.

Joe S., Cast Member at Disneyland Park - Resort Transportation and Parking

Customers, manufacturers and employees of the companies involved in this uncontrolled consolidation in the grocery industry all lose out as it continues. Less and less competition is not a good thing in the grocery industry!

Awesome move, some great locations and helps Aldi in the Florida Market. Stores and Warehouses. I am assuming Winn-Dixie/Harveys will have Aldi store format on stores.
