The bargain-retailer Aldi has launched a huge new deal that could save customers huge amounts. It has announced they are going to introduce a new 75% bargain hour for products such as bread, meat and fruit. The new campaign will be in all 912 Aldi UK stores when it’s rolled out to stores next week.
Aldi customers will be able to take advantage of markdown perishable goods that are close to their last day of life. The new scheme is being introduced in hopes it will help the stores cut waste as part of having food waste by 2030.
The supermarket already reduces the price of items that are reaching their best-before dates, but the new, huge discount will be marked with red stickers and will be 75% off – which could be a lifesaver for many families. The products will be sold on a first come first serve basis – so make sure you do not miss out.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “Aldi is already known for its low prices, but these discounts will help some shoppers to cut their grocery bills even further – all while helping us reduce food waste.
“Customers should look out for the red stickers when shopping at Aldi, but shoppers need to be quick as I’m sure the products will prove popular.”
The red stickers will be similar to the current stickers used in-store, except they will have “75% off” in bold text. A use-by date on products highlights when food may no longer be safe to eat – while best before suggesting food quality may start to reduce.
Aldi recently joined other supermarket chains in the fight against coronavirus with the introduction of mandatory face mask wearing in-store. The decision was made to resufe entry to anyone that does not have a face covering -unless they have an exemption. To make the transition easier they’re going to giving out face masks for a period of time to make sure that the new intervention runs smoothly. Read more in the link below.
