Aldi U.K. to Ramp Up Click and Collect Trial
UNITED KINGDOM - What better time to expand than ahead of the holidays? As demand ramps up, the need for diverse retail services continues to grow. Aldi is ensuring its customers in the United Kingdom will have access to safe and convenient groceries this year as the retailer plans to expand its click and collect trial to roughly 200 more stores by Christmas.
“This trial has been hugely popular so far,” said Chief Executive Officer Giles Hurley, according to a report from Reuters.
Aldi began trialing online services back in April in addition to partnering with Deliveroo for a delivery option. As of September, its click and collect trial began with a single store in England before expanding to 18 other stores in October.
The news source stated that online groceries have doubled their share of the U.K. market, with the demand continuing to grow. Through Aldi’s services, consumers have access to multiple contact-free options in order to receive groceries quickly and safely during this unprecedented time.
