Aldi trials Click and Collect for first time

Aldi is trialling its first UK Click and Collect services from a store in the Midlands, with plans to extend that in the coming weeks.

During the current trial, Aldi colleagues can choose from a full range of grocery items online, then drive to their local store where they can have their shopping brought to their cars by store colleagues contact-free.

Customers are offered timeslots to arrive at dedicated Click and Collect points in store car parks. If it proves successful, it will be rolled out to further stores across the country in the near future.

The discount supermarket chain is already trialling a rapid delivery service across stores in the East Midlands, London, Cambridge and Greater Manchester, in partnership with Deliveroo.

The Deliveroo service allows customers around selected stores to order from a range of more than 300 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as 30 minutes.

UK and Ireland chief executive Giles Hurley said: “We know that more and more people want to access the high-quality, affordable food they know they can get at Aldi.

“This is yet another way we are innovating to make sure we best serve our existing customers and make Aldi’s great products and unbeatable prices available to even more people.”
