Aldi is fast becoming the go-to supermarket in the UK. Its bargain prices and quality products are making it the first choice for most shoppers across the UK. And now the supermarket has launched a delivery service to 130 stores nationwide.
Their new delivery service is going to be in collaboration with Deliveroo, and can be arranged in as little time as 20 minutes! Well, they are known for their speedy service.
It began its trial in 42 stores across the UK and has confirmed that the trial has been rolled out to nearly 90 other stores in the last month. If customers are in 6km (3miles) radius of participating stores, then they will be able to do a grocery shop on 400 essential Aldi grocery items.
Orders are to be made through the Deliveroo app, and then packed by Aldi staff, and then delivered by Deliveroo drivers in as little as 20 minutes in some cases.
Communications Director at Aldi UK, Richard Thornton said: “We’re finding customers really value having more ways to shop at Aldi, particularly at the moment… That’s why we’ve been keen to extend our trial with Deliveroo to stores in more new areas, and plan to launch our trial of click and collect in more than 200 additional stores between now and Christmas… In the past month, we have made the Deliveroo service available in new areas such as Cardiff and Aberdeen, and will continue to monitor feedback of the service closely.”
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo said: “We are delighted that Aldi’s trial with Deliveroo will expand to 130 stores. Deliveroo’s on-demand grocery partnerships have proven vital for so many people during this difficult period, allowing families to get the food and household items they need and want quickly. The fast expansion and success of this trial reflect the strong customer desire for groceries on-demand, an area in which Deliveroo is providing increasing choice. We are excited that even more customers across the country can now enjoy Aldi’s great quality food.”
