Aldi has started to offer a “rapid delivery” from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham, before extending the trial to a further seven stores across the East Midlands in June.
Customers will be able to order over 150 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app, which 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.
If successful, the delivery service could roll out to further Aldi stores by the end of 2020.
Giles Hurley, CEO, Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We hope the new trial with Deliveroo will provide more customers with access to great quality, affordable food at Aldi. 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.”
Ajay Lakhwani, vice president of New Business, Deliveroo added: “At Deliveroo, we are doing everything we can to make sure that people get the food they need and want during this unprecedented time.
“We are pleased to partner with Aldi and deliver even more choice to our customers as they continue to keep safe at home.”
