ALDI is set to ramp-up its click and collect grocery service trial by up to an additional 200 stores in the UK before Christmas.
Britain’s fifth-largest supermarket group, with 900 stores and an 8% market share, has been expanding its channels to customers and made the announcement on Monday, November 9, having started selling food parcels to help self-isolating and vulnerable customers in April.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, it also started a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo and launched its click and collect trial from a single store in central England in September, before extending it to cover 18 stores last month.
“This trial has been hugely popular so far,” said Chief Executive Giles Hurley.
Aldi customers 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 staff contact-free, in line with social distancing rules that may continue until Christmas.
Last month Aldi said it was investing £1.3 billion over the next two years, including in opening 100 new stores and upgrading a further 100 stores.
