Aldi ramps up home delivery service with expansion of Deliveroo trial
Discount supermarket brand Aldi UK had announced the expansion of a home delivery trial to almost 130 stores across the country.
The UK arm of the German supermarket business has confirmed that its ongoing trial with delivery firm Deliveroo is set to be expanded as the demand for home delivery of groceries continues to grow.
Aldi UK first started offering online food parcels to support self-isolating and vulnerable customers during the COVID-19 pandemic in April, and a month later began a delivery trial in partnership with Deliveroo.
Under the trial, Aldi customers are able to order groceries on the Deliveroo app for same day delivery.
The news comes as online grocery shopping has seen a significant uplift as the result of coronavirus, and follows the brand’s extension of its click and collect trial announced last week - which will see click and collect services available in up to 200 additional stores by Christmas.
The supermarket commented: “We’re finding customers really value having more ways to shop at Aldi, particularly at the moment.”
