ALDI TO EXTEND CLICK-AND-COLLECT TRIAL TO MORE THAN 200 MORE STORES BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Aldi is to extend its trial of click and collect to up to more than 200 additional stores by Christmas.
The move means thousands of shoppers across the UK will be able to get quality Aldi groceries online at unbeatable prices in time for Christmas.
Aldi first launched its click and collect service to customers at a single store in the Midlands in September, before extending the trial to cover a total of 18 stores last month.
Shoppers can choose from a full range of grocery items online, then drive to their local store where their shopping is brought to their car by Aldi colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We know that more and more people want to buy high-quality food at unbeatable Aldi prices – particularly at the moment – and this trial has been hugely popular so far.
“By extending it to hundreds of new stores, we’re making Aldi accessible to thousands of shoppers who might never have visited one of our stores before.”
Customers wanting to use click and collect can visit groceries.aldi.co.uk to book a timeslot for collection in selected stores. Orders are picked and packed by colleagues in store, then delivered to customers in dedicated parking bays when they arrive.
In September, Aldi announced it was investing £1.3 billion over the next two years, including in opening 100 new stores and upgrading a further 100 stores.
