Aldi is to extend its click & collect service to more than 200 stores in time for Christmas.
It means customers across the UK will be able to order online from Aldi’s full grocery range and have their shopping brought out to their car.
Aldi first launched click & collect from a Loughborough store in September, before extending it to around 15 more last month.
Customers place their orders at groceries.aldi.co.uk, the discounter’s first UK grocery e-commerce site, where they choose their store for collection and book a time slot. Orders are picked and packed by Aldi staff and customers pay a click & collect charge varying between about £4 and £5 depending on the store and slot chosen.
It’s one of two major online grocery ventures launched by Aldi in the pandemic. In May the supermarket began serving orders via Deliveroo, a trial that doubled to 42 stores in October.
”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,” said Aldi UK & Ireland CEO Giles Hurley.
“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.”
