Aldi has launched click-and-collect services in Scotland for the first time, after extending its current UK trial to a store in Montrose.
Customers can order from a full range of groceries online then collect them, in pre-booked one-hour slots. They can also choose to have their shopping loaded into their boot by an Aldi colleague, so they don’t have to leave their car.
On arrival at dedicated click-and-collect points in the store car park, customers will have their shopping brought to their cars by Aldi colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
More than 200 stores across the UK are now trialling the supermarket’s click-and-collect service, which will also be rolled out to its Whitburn store later this month.
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “Extending this trial is about providing thousands more of our existing customers with another convenient way to shop with us, while also making Aldi accessible for many others who may not have shopped with us before.”
As well as click-and-collect, Aldi is also trialling a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo in almost 130 stores across the UK, including ones in Glasgow, Perth, Dundee, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, St Andrews, Musselburgh, and Dunfermline.
Customers living near selected stores can order from a range of around 400 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as 20 minutes.
