Biography,First Aldi store in Schonnebeck, EssenKarl and Theo Albrecht were born and raised in a Catholic family in modest circumstances in Essen, Germany. Their father, Karl Sr, was employed as a miner and later as a bakers assistant. Their mother Anna, nee Siepmann, had a small grocery store in the workers quarter of Schonnebeck (de), a suburb of Essen. Theo completed an apprenticeship in his mothers store, while Karl worked in a delicatessen shop. Karl served in the Wehrmacht during World War II and was wounded on the Eastern Front. After the war, the brothers jointly took over their mothers business and founded Albrecht KG. They separated that company in 1961 into Aldi Nord, covering the part of Germany north of the Ruhr under Theo Albrecht, and Aldi Sud under Karl. The first Aldi (short for Albrecht Discount) was opened in 1962.Aldi in Europe, (blue = Aldi north, orange = Aldi south)In 1994, Karl Albrecht removed himself from the daily operations of Aldi Sud and took the position of chairman of the board until 2002. At the beginning of 2002, he also relinquished this position, thereby completely ceding control of the firm. Today, the business is no longer run by any of Karl Albrechts family members.Personal lifeKarl Albrecht was a very reclusive man who had not taken part in public life for several years prior to his death. As a result, little is known about him. Forbes magazine reported that he had two children, neither of whom was employed by Aldi. He reportedly lived in Essen, as did his brother Theo until the latters death. Golf was one of his hobbies, and Albrecht played the sport on his own golf course, the Oschberghof, which he built in 1976. He also raised orchids.
