This tour has been a part of Capofari’s class for more than five years.Kara Harvey, '93, director of warehousing and logistics for Aldi, led the students on the tour and explained the Aldi concept and details on distribution.  “I liked their product flow and set-up on the floor,” said Sandeep Kaur, PSCM major at Penn State Lehigh Valley who attended the tour.Heather Wong, '16, district manager for Aldi, presented information to students about internship opportunities with Aldi.  “It’s great to see PSU-LV students.

Wong interned at ALDI over a summer, which led to her working full-time as a professional.
