Aldi has announced its plans to launch its first click-and-collect service for its customers throughout Ireland.
Following a successful trial of the service in Dublin, Aldi announced that it plans to extend this service to customers through 15 of its stores across Ireland from Monday 8 February to early March.
Niall O’Connor, group managing director, Aldi Ireland, said, “Following the success of the initial trials of the service, we’re really excited to now be able to offer click-and-collect to Irish customers in this roll-out to selected stores.”
Through this new click-and-collect service, Aldi customers will be able to choose from a full range of grocery items online, then drive to their local store, where they can have their shopping brought to their cars by store colleagues, contact-free – in line with social-distancing rules, the discounter announced.
Following this initial phase, the service will be extended to further stores across the country in the near future.
The click-and-collect trial will see orders being picked and packed by Aldi staff, ready for customer collection.
Customers will be offered time slots to arrive at dedicated click-and-collect points in store car parks, where they can pick up their shopping, the retailer noted.
“We are continuously reviewing and looking at new ways that we can enhance our customers’ experience with Aldi, and this is another solution that we’re proud to provide,” O’Connor added.
Aldi already has a rapid delivery service across stores in the UK and Ireland, in partnership with Deliveroo.
The Deliveroo service currently allows customers around selected stores to order from a range of more than 400 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorsteps in as little as 30 minutes.
The rapid delivery service with Deliveroo is currently offering free delivery to Aldi customers.
