Aldi UK is running a pilot of a grocery click and collect service for the first time.
Available to Aldi’s staff, initially
At the moment, the trial of the service is being run exclusively for Aldi colleagues from a store in the Midlands. If the trial proves successful, it will be extended to customers and to further stores across the country in the near future.
How does it work?
Aldi colleagues are able to choose from a full range of grocery items online, then drive to their local store where they can have their order brought to their cars by store colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
When the trial is extended to customers, they are due to be offered timeslots to arrive at dedicated click-and-collect points in store car parks, where they can pick up their shopping.
