Aldi Ireland Begins Trial Of Self-Service Checkouts

Aldi Ireland has begun the installation of self-service checkouts at 21 selected stores around the country.

The first Aldi store to trial the machines was Monread, Naas, Co. Kildare, and it has proven popular with customers since the launch.

A number of self-checkouts are in operation at various Dublin stores, including Sallynoggin, Coolock, and Newlands Cross.

Following its recent Project Fresh upgrade, Aldi’s Castleisland store, in Kerry, will be the next outlet to feature self-checkouts.

These will be in operation from Thursday 6 June.

Throughout June and July, 16 further stores will see self-checkouts come into operation.

These span counties Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Kerry, Cavan and Clare.

Aldi’s self-checkout terminals will allow customers to pay by cash, card, and contactless payment.

Existing staffed checkouts will remain in operation alongside the self-service tills, with Aldi committed to retaining this service for customers.

‘Efficient And Simple Experience’

Speaking about the innovation, the managing director of buying and services at Aldi Ireland, Colin Breslin, said, “We’re always looking at ways to enhance and improve the in-store experience for our customers.

“As well as providing outstanding-quality products at unbeatable prices, we are focused on giving our customers an efficient and simple experience in our store.”
