Shoppers at Aldi now have a new way of buying and collecting supplies from the discount chain’s Dartford store after a deal was struck with delivery service Deliveroo.
Customers within a 6km radius of the store at the Orchards Shopping Centre in Dartford will now be able to choose from around 400 essential Aldi grocery items through the app.
Deliveroo ‘on-demand’ deliveries were first trialled at eight Aldi stores in England last May, but is now being extended to the Dartford store, and is currently available at around 120 sites across the UK.
Once ordered, products are picked and packed by Aldi colleagues before being delivered by Deliveroo’s network of riders in as little as 20 minutes.
Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “We’re finding customers really value having more ways to shop at Aldi, particularly in Kent.
“That’s why we’re extending our partnership with Deliveroo to the Dartford store, offering Aldi’s unbeatable value to even more customers.”
Carlo Mocci, Chief Business Officer UKI at Deliveroo said: “Bringing great selection to our customers is at the heart of what we do here at Deliveroo. That’s why we are delighted that even more customers across the UK will be able to choose from a wide range of Aldi’s great quality and affordable groceries delivered directly to their door.”
In addition to Deliveroo, Aldi is also trialling a Click and Collect service at over 200 locations, where customers can also order a full range of groceries online at groceries.aldi.co.uk then collect them in pre-booked one-hour collection slots from their local store.
