Friends of the Goethe-Institut are sponsoring an interesting discussion, Tuesday April 10 in Washington DC, on the history of Aldi and Trader Joe’s. Few American’s know that Trader Joe’s is a subsidiary of the German discount food store Aldi. There is a rich history to the two stores with some interesting stories on the development and healthy growth of the two brands. If this sounds interesting to you and you’re in the DC area, you may want to join in on the discussion.
Uwe Spiekermann will be leading the discussion, in German, and it is open to the public. Tickets are only $5, but if you are a member, student or senior, you can get in for free. According to the Washington Goethe-Institut website, this is part of their Sprechen Sie Deutsch? series which features a new topic and guest speaker every month. It is a way for people who are interested in hearing and speaking German to get together and participate in an interesting discussion.
You can get all of the details including the address and RSVP info at the Goethe-Institut Washington event page
