The new service rolls out from 20th July.
Helping us Mancs get through the pandemic, Aldi has released a brand new delivery service – which is perfect for those who still don’t fancy leaving the house amid the Coronavirus outbreak.
Joining forces with popular food delivery app Deliveroo, customers will now be able to get their groceries direct to their door for the first time ever, with around 200 product options to choose from through the Deliveroo app. Once orders have been placed, they’ll be picked and packed by an Aldi team member, before being collected by a Deliveroo Rider and delivered the very same day. And while the idea sounds potentially life-saving for many of those who still aren’t up for a trip to the shops, only 20 stores will be taking part – including five in Manchester.
Eight stores in the Midlands were already participating, with Camden being the first in London to take part. See the full list of new participating stores below:
- North Finchley
- Histon Rd, Cambridge
- Manchester Ancoats
- Manchester Arndale
- Archway, London
Speaking of the new concept, Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “Even as many lockdown restrictions are lifted, we’re aware that there are still many people who are shielding and would like to shop at Aldi but can’t.
“In extending this trial further, we are making it even easier for thousands more people in different parts of the country to get hold of great quality food at Aldi’s unbeatable prices.”
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo added: “We are pleased that Aldi is extending its current trial with Deliveroo into 11 new stores. At Deliveroo we want to play our role in making sure households have access to everything they need and want during COVID-19. This expansion is fantastic news for our customers, who can now enjoy an even wider choice of great quality food in as little as 30 minutes.”
