ALDI has recently announced that it will be slashing its prices on more than 250 items this summer to help ease the “sticker shock at checkout.” The discount grocery company said in a recent press release that it is reducing costs on seasonal products like BBQ essentials and travel-ready snacks through Labor Day (September 2). 

But the discounts won’t last for long, as they have also commented that certain types of meat will only be discounted until July 10th.

According to a statement by ALDI President Dave Rinaldo, “We don’t want food prices to hold people back from getting together with friends and family or spending time outdoors this season.”

While ALDI has commented that it wants to help customers combat “stubborn inflation,” the price cuts aren’t very deep for a lot of the products included in its summer sale.

Here is a list of products and their discounted prices that ALDI has listed in its summer sale:

Earlier this year, White House officials pressed grocers to lower prices for consumers. Public frustration over rising costs has become a key issue in President Joe Biden’s bid for re-election. U.S. prices for food eaten at home usually rise 2.5% per year, but in 2022 they rose 11.4% and in 2023 they rose another 5%, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
