Aldi shopper’s disgust after pigeons poo all over shopping trolleys and baby seats

A SUPERMARKET shopper was left disgusted when he found trolleys and baby seats from his local Aldi smothered in pigeon poo.

The customer, who doesn’t want to be named, contacted the head office of Aldi with concerns about the state of the trolleys at the store in Hull.

Shocked at his findings, the man took pictures showing pigeon droppings covering the trolleys and baby seats outside the budget store.

Having first noticed the constant pigeon droppings outside the Beverley Road store in March, the man previously made a complaint to Aldi’s head office.

After confirmation that the Aldi store would be installing anti-pigeon spikes, he was angry to see that on 6 July, the trolleys and child seats were once again smothered in bird poo.

The customer told the Hull Daily Mail: “In March I noticed a problem with pigeons roosting over the trolley [area] with some poo on the trolleys.

“I left it a few weeks to see if staff would rectify it, but they didn’t so I made a complaint about it.”


The angry shopper, who visits the Aldi store weekly, was told by a spokesperson that the store would “have to install anti-pigeon spikes above the trolleys.”

He said: “I was told staff would ensure the trolleys were cleaned daily, but a few weeks later it was still not rectified”, he said.

“I got back in touch with them and they gave me some sob story about not having hoses long enough to reach.

“Since then the pigeon poo had gone from the trolleys, but it was still all over the floor.

“Then, when I visited today (July 6) I saw trolleys with poo on them, so that’s why I publicly tweeted Aldi with the pictures. I have given them plenty of chance to rectify this, and after months they still haven’t.”

An Aldi spokesman said the issue was being looked into and would be resolved soon.

He said: “Our trolleys are cleaned daily and we are continuing to explore other ways of resolving this as soon as possible.”

The man, who asked to remain anonymous, publicly tweeted about the dire state of the trolleys after claiming he had given the store amble time to sort the issue
