With financial pressures building for many families, Aldi has shared its helpful tips to make shopping at the supermarket easy, safe and affordable, following the Government’s announcement that lockdown will continue for at least another three weeks.


The best times to visit…revealed

Although many more people are working from home, the most popular times to visit Aldi continue to be at the end of the week from Thursday to Sunday. The quietest times are generally in the afternoons and evenings at the start of the week.

Opening hours have been extended to 10pm Monday-Saturday at almost all Aldi stores, and all stores continue to operate normal Sunday opening hours.


Stock up with a weekly shop

Product restrictions have been lifted as there is good availability across all stores. This should help customers to stock up on essentials and make fewer visits to our stores throughout the week.


Elderly and vulnerable shoppers get exclusive access

Elderly and vulnerable customers get exclusive access to Aldi stores 30 minutes before normal opening times, Monday to Saturday. This means that they can expect a quieter store, giving them more time to do their shop at their own pace.


Key workers take priority

All those entitled to a Blue Light card – including NHS, Police, Fire Service, social care workers, first responders and St John’s Ambulance staff – have priority access to Aldi stores at all times, and have exclusive access to stores 30 minutes before normal opening times on Sundays.


Make use of sanitisation stations

Sanitisation stations are now in place at the front of stores so it is easy for customers to disinfect their hands, trolleys and baskets before doing their shop.


Keep a safe distance at the till point

Two-metre markers on shop floors are in place to help everyone to keep at a safe distance and Perspex screens have been installed at checkouts to offer extra protection.

Aldi is also encouraging everyone to use a contactless payment method if they can, as it means fewer shoppers will have to handle cash or come into contact with the payment terminal. The limit for contactless payments has been increased to £45, which should mean that more people can make use of them. There is also no limit on Apple Pay and Google Pay which are both accepted in all stores.


Wine and spirits can be ordered online with free delivery

A wide range of Aldi wines and spirits are available online for home delivery, which is free for orders of £20 or more. Purchases are currently limited to 12 items per delivery, due to high demand.


Pick up the full range of Specialbuys online

Aldi’s popular Specialbuys are available to buy while stocks last every Thursday and Sunday. Many of the bigger items are now being sold online for home delivery. The latest products include kitchenware, hobbies and crafts, baby & toddler items and pet essentials. If you sign up to the Aldi newsletter, you’ll get a sneak preview a week in advance giving you chance to plan ahead.
