Aldi Ireland has announced its plans to trial an on-demand grocery home delivery in Ireland for the first time, in partnership with Deliveroo.
Effective from today (29 June), the supermarket will offer a rapid delivery service from its East Wall store in Dublin 3, before extending the trial to Terenure in Dublin 6 on Wednesday, 1 July.
Customers will be able to order from over 140 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app, the discounter said.
These will be picked and packed by Aldi colleagues in-store, for delivery via Deliveroo’s network of riders.
Aldi will initially offer a range of essential items, such as bread, milk and fresh produce to be delivered to customers’ doorsteps in as little as 30 minutes.
“We hope the new trial with Deliveroo will provide more customers with access to great quality, affordable food at Aldi," said Niall O’Connor, group managing director, Aldi UK & Ireland.
The trial is the first major on-demand convenience partnership for Deliveroo in Ireland.
If successful, the rapid delivery service could roll out to further Aldi stores by the end of 2020, the retailer noted.
“This is a new and exciting venture for Aldi and we will be constantly reviewing how we can best serve our customers and continue to provide them with the high quality products they are used to in store,” O’Connor added.
