Australian shoppers were left outraged last month after Aldi pulled a chic side table from sale at the last minute.
The Natural Wood Side Table was due to appear in Australian stores for $69 as part of the retail chain’s latest Special Buys sale, but was removed ‘due to production issues’.
The roll out was delayed until this week and customers are wasting no time stocking up on the luxe home accessory – mothers in particular.

Some used the table as a bed side stand, while others placed it in living rooms and bathrooms as a quirky prop.
Fans had their heart set on the table weeks earlier, and several customers were left upset after going to their local Aldi to find the side table unavailable.

‘So disappointed but I’ll be back and waiting… when it’s restocked,’ a shopper wrote.
‘I just saw this – OMG was going to go at 8am tomorrow for it, they’ve done so much PR about this item, I’m dying,’ another said.
