ALDI will be the latest to join the list of car parks Orange City Council monitors following difficulties with overstaying parkers.
The Peisley Street supermarket asked the council to enter into a lease agreement to carry out parking patrols in order to enforce the two-hour limit.
A report to councillors last week said Aldi had experienced problems with people using the car park for long periods of time, but not patronising the store, and there were no other means to ensure spaces remained available for customers.
An Aldi spokeswoman confirmed the issues in a statement, but did not elaborate on how many motorists were exceeding their welcome or how long they were parking.
"Since the re-opening of Aldi Orange, we have noticed that our store car park is being used by people who are not Aldi customers," she said.
"As a result, a number of Aldi Orange customers are unable to find parking spaces to complete their shop.

"Our work with the Orange City Council will help improve this situation with the assistance of regular patrols."
Councillors endorsed the move, which will commit parking rangers to the car park for an hour a day, involving one patrol to mark tyres, another to check the mark, plus random walk-through patrols at any time.
The arrangement, to last at least a year, will be similar to other car park monitoring at Orange City Centre, Orange Central Square, Kmart and the Summer Centre.
"Under those agreements, those centres are responsible for the costs associated with council's parking officers carrying out patrols, and for the erection of signage and line marking," the report said, noting the lease agreement would cover the council's costs.
Parking will remain free.
Aldi is also awaiting the outcome of a development application, which has proposed a driveway linking its car park with the council-owned car park behind Wrap-Rite and Peisley Street Flame Grilled Chicken.
The driveway would be built at Aldi's expense.
