Aldi has confirmed plans to roll out its new click and collect service to more than 200 stores following a successful trial.
The move, which comes after Aldi released its Kevin the Carrot Christmas advert, means thousands of shoppers across the UK will be able to get quality Aldi groceries such as its chocolate orange gin online in time for Christmas.
The extension comes after the supermarket launched its first click and collect service to customers at a store in the Midlands, before extending the trial to cover a total of 18 stores last month.
And due to the success, Aldi is rolling out to more than 200 extra stores - with the next wave of 15 branches to launch the new service as early as this week.
‘Tis the season for the traditional mince pie. We have them in all tastes and sizes to twist this Christmas classic. From Sloe Gin Mince Tarts to Millionaires Mince Pies. Which ones do you have your eyes on? 😍 #mincepies #sloeginmincepies #millionairesmincepies #mincetarts #christmas #food #festivefood #Aldi #AmazingAldiChristmas Aldi UK

“We know that more and more people want to buy high-quality food at unbeatable Aldi prices – particularly at the moment – and this trial has been hugely popular so far," said Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK and Ireland.
“By extending it to hundreds of new stores, we’re making Aldi accessible to thousands of shoppers who might never have visited one of our stores before.”
Shoppers can choose from a full range of grocery items online, then drive to their local store where their shopping is brought to their car by Aldi colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
Is your local Aldi next on the click and collect roll out list? Stores confirmed to roll out the service this week are:
- Broughton Astley
- Silverwoods Way, Kidderminster
- Holliers Walk, Hinckley
- Bristol Longwell Green
- Weddington Road, Nuneaton
Customers wanting to use click and collect can visit groceries.aldi.co.uk to book a time slot for collection in selected stores. Orders are picked and packed by colleagues in store, then delivered to customers in dedicated parking bays when they arrive.
In September, Aldi announced it was investing £1.3 billion over the next two years, including in opening 100 new stores and upgrading a further 100 stores.
