Need for E-Commerce Activities as Major Marketing Strategy

Need help with my writing homework on Need for E-Commerce Activities as Major Marketing Strategy. Write a 1500 word paper answering; It is clear from the discussion that first ALDI ‘service store’ was opened in 1913 in Essen, a small town in Germany. By 1960, there were more than 300 stores and the company started the new concept of ‘self-service’ which became a huge success with the customers. The expansion of ALDI stores continues, both in terms of goods and services as well as the increasing number of branches across the globe. At present, ALDI has more than 7000 branches across three continents. The first Australian store came into existence in 2001 and now has more than 200 stores across New South Wales, ACT, Queensland, and Victoria. The store thrives on its policy of ‘all people, wherever they live, should have the opportunity to buy everyday groceries of the highest quality at the lowest possible price’(ALDI.com.au, 2009). But with the increasingly competitive business environment, the need for e-commerce activities have become an essential market strategy in the overall business strategy of ALDI.
