The trial has already been in place in some stores, and now more Aldi customers can enjoy the ease and simplicity. Thousands of shoppers across the UK will be able to get “quality Aldi groceries online at unbeatable prices in time for Christmas” the store promises.
The service first launched at just one Midlands store in September.
It was than extended to cover a total of 18 stores last month.
Aldi said: “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, added: “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.”
