Aldi launches click-and-collect trial as it ramps up digital capabilities

Aldi Click and Collect 1

Aldi has launched a click-and-collect trial for staff at one of its stores in the Midlands, with a view to rolling the service out for customers in the “coming weeks”.

The discount supermarket chain said that staff at the store would be able to “choose from a full range of grocery items online” and then have the order brought to their car “contact-free, in line with social distancing rules”.

Staff will be offered time slots to arrive at dedicated click-and-collect points in the store’s car park, with orders being prepared on site. 

Aldi said that, if successful, the trial would be extended to customers “across the country in the near future” and would add “greater flexibility and access” to the retailer’s range.
