Aldi is trialling on-demand grocery home delivery in the UK in partnership with Deliveroo – great news if you hate food shopping at the moment. Cut out the queuing and the social distancing and order all your faves from Aldi direct to your door. From today, the budget supermarket will offer a rapid delivery service from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham, before extending the trial to a further seven shops across the East Midlands in June.
Customers will be able to order from more than 150 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app. These will be picked and packed by Aldi colleagues in-store, for delivery via Deliveroo’s network of riders.
Aldi will initially offer a range of essential items, like bread, milk and fresh vegetables, to be delivered to your doorstep in just 30 minutes. The new on-demand service has been introduced to offer customers greater flexibility and access to affordable Aldi groceries, and to support people who are self-isolating. The trials follow Aldi’s recent move into online food parcels, which were introduced to help self-isolating and vulnerable customers. The parcels contain 22 products including tinned soup, rice and pasta – and cost £23.99.
If successful, the delivery service could roll out to further Aldi stores by the end of the year.
