ALDI is piloting a new click-and-collect service in the UK, with plans to roll the initiative out nationwide in the coming weeks reports the Daily Mirror.
The supermarket said it’s currently running a trial for Aldi colleagues in a Midlands store, with plans to extend the scheme to all customers if successful.
As part of the trial, Aldi colleagues will be able to choose from a full range of grocery items online before visiting their store to collect the goods.
All items will be brought to their cars by store colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
If successful, the chain said “the trial will be extended to customers and at further stores across the country in the near future”.
Aldi is already trialling a rapid delivery service across several stores in the East Midlands, London, Cambridge and Greater Manchester in partnership with Deliveroo.
The Deliveroo service allows customers to order from a range of 300 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep in 30 minutes.
The click-and-collect trial will see orders being picked and packed by Aldi colleagues ready for customer collection.
