The post received hundreds of comments from upset customers disappointed that they could not get their hands on the clothes. One customer said: “Bit like the egg chairs! Never stand a chance!”
Shoppers fumed that several of the items had appeared on Ebay, including a £15 Aldi hoodie selling for £50.
One woman said: “I’m at a loss why you would want to wear clothing emblazoned with Aldi.” And another added: “Is this range not a joke?!? People are buying Aldi branded clothing?!”
The range was released as part of last week’s SpecialBuy selection, which often prove to be a hit.
Aldi did warn customers prior to the launch that they would need to be quick as the items would likely sell out. It said: “Soon you’ll be able to wear the Aldi logo loud and proud. We’re talking unisex hoodies, hipsters, pyjamas and socks.
“But you’ll need to be quick. Because as with all Specialbuys – once they’re gone, they’re gone. And trust us, these will go!”
