Aldi is trialling click-and-collect services.

This will allow selected customers to order their grocery items online.

Orders are then being picked and packed by supermarket workers ready for customer collection.

Shoppers will be offered timeslots to arrive at dedicated click-and-collect points in store car parks, where they can pick up their shopping.

In line with social distancing rules, they are asked to remain outside the supermarket so colleagues can bring the bags direct to their cars.

If the trial is successful, the service will be extended to more stores in the UK “in the near future”.

Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We know that more and more people want to access the high-quality, affordable food they know they can get at Aldi.

“This is yet another way we are innovating to make sure we best serve our existing customers and make Aldi’s great products and unbeatable prices available to even more people.”

This test period coincides with another that Aldi is running at the moment.

For rapid delivery, it’s partnered with Deliveroo to drop off shopping in the East Midlands, London, Cambridge and Greater Manchester.

During the Deliveroo trial, customers have been able to choose from more than 300 Aldi products.

These are then picked up by a delivery driver, who drop bags to the doors within 30 minutes.

Tinned soup, rice and pasta, are among the essential items that have been dropped off in recent weeks.

If the trial continues to be a success, this service could also be rolled out nationwide.
