I ran into my local Aldi’s grocery store last week to pick up a few items. It was a quick in and out and I didn’t spend a lot of time loitering. Usually, I see one or two employees shelving items or working one of the registers. This time, I saw no one. The store seemed to be completely empty of employees.
