Aldi brings click-and-collect to Portsmouth area for first time
Aldi is launching a click-and-collect service in Portsmouth for the first time.
The discount supermarket will be testing the service at stores in the city as well as in Fareham, Gosport and Havant.
Customers are now able to order from a full range of groceries online from groceries.aldi.co.uk then collect them, in pre-booked one-hour collection slots.
The service will be available at the Aldi stores in: Southampton Road, Portsmouth; West Street, Fareham; Mumby Road, Gosport; and Central Retail Park, Havant.
There will be click-and-collect points in the store car park and customers will be able to have their shopping brought to their cars contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
Aldi is set to extend its trial of click and collect to over 200 additional stores by Christmas.
Giles Hurley, chief executive officer for the supermarket in UK and Ireland, said:‘Extending this trial is about providing thousands more of our existing customers with another convenient way to shop with us, while also making Aldi accessible for many others who may not have shopped with us before.’
As well as click-and-collect, Aldi is also trialling a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo and has extended the trial to almost 130 stores across the UK.
Customers living near selected stores can order from a range of around 400 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as 20 minutes.
