    Aldi Facebook Page Kicking Off after Parking Eye LBAs 19th Jun 13 at 11:04 AM
    It seems to be kicking off a bit on Aldi's Facebook Page. Aldi seems to be reaping the rewards of their contract with PE

    [TEXT DELETED BY FORUM TEAM] (and as their Agents, bringing Aldi closer to having to account for all this).

    Major bad publicity. If you can add to it, go for it.

    Given the parasitic PPCs are in almost all supermarket car parks ( well they are around here ) that makes it rather difficult.

    It's actually quite funny over on their Facebook page - loads of pictures of dogs suddenly pushed out by dozens of posts about Parking Eye !!!! I certainly think targeted campaigns like this might be the way forward. Get Aldi first and then move on to say Asda.

    On the day that Aldi are awarded "Supermarket Of The Year" award by Which, some party poopers come along and ask some awkward questions about why Aldi's customers are being taken to court by PE.
    What part of "A whop bop-a-lu a whop bam boo" don't you understand?

    For Asda, Twitter might be a good option.
    Loss prevention monitor it with twitterfeed.

    Aldi's boilerplate response to all the facebook messages

    "At Aldi we hope you can appreciate the need to have a car park management system in place, in a number of our stores across the UK, to ensure the provision of car parking availability to all our customers.

    ParkingEye manage many of our car parks, mostly with a simple time-sensitive automatic number plate recognition system. However, in a handful of our stores, it has been necessary to install other systems whereby customers are required to enter their registration prior to leaving the store. This system is in place solely to ensure free parking for our customers. Aldi do not receive any revenue from these parking measures.

    If any customer feels that they have received a charge unfairly, please do let us know and we are more than happy to look into individual cases. Please contact us at customer-services@aldi.co.uk or via a private message here on our Page including any proof of purchase you may hold. Thanks again for getting in touch."

    In most of their stores it's just ANPR. So how does that 'ensure the provision of car parking availability to all our customers'. You roll up to Aldi, car park is chokka, but store is empty. All using the car park are shopping elsewhere, but exit the car park before the PE witching hour of 1.5 hours. So how does that 'manage' your car park, Aldi?

    Regarding their receiving revenue (or not?) - sooner or later Aldi is going to have sign a 'Statement of Truth' I suspect.

    New user here but long time 'viewer' with great admiration of all who give up their time to deal with PPC scams.

    My local Aldi, which has never had a parking issue and where I used to be a customer has been blighted with PE disease. I'm happy to have a chat with my council re planning permission etc regarding use of the free car park.. had a look on line but no detail there. So looking for some guidance.

    Find the postcode of your local Aldi and search for applications made against this postcode.
