Aldi is doubling the size of its partnership with Deliveroo expanding its rapid home delivery capabilities to thousands more shoppers.
Aldi allowed shoppers to purchase food online in the UK for the first time in its history in May, partnering with Deliveroo to offer 30-minute delivery from eight stores in the Midlands.
Following massive popularity of the service, the German discounter then expanded this partnership to London in June enabling 100,000 Londoners to access the service and choose from a range of over 200 products.
Deliveroo and Aldi are now dramatically ramping up their partnership, adding 11 more stores across the UK to bring the total to 20.
Customers withing a 5km radius of Aldi stores in London’s Kilburn, Tottenham and North Finchley will be able to access the service from today, as will those in Histon Road, Cambrige.
On Monday 20 customers in Manchester’s Ancoats and Arndale, Didsbury, Trafford, Altrincham, Balham and Archway will also have access to the service.
Should the partnership continue to prove popular, the service could be rolled out to even more stores across the UK before the end of the year.
“Even as many lockdown restrictions are lifted, we’re aware that there are still many people who are shielding and would like to shop at Aldi but can’t,” Aldi UK’s communications director Richard Thornton said.
“In extending this trial further, we are making it even easier for thousands more people in different parts of the country to get hold of great quality food at Aldi’s unbeatable prices.”
Deliveroo’s vice president of new business Ajay Lakhwani added: “We are pleased that Aldi is extending its current trial with Deliveroo into 11 new stores.
“At Deliveroo we want to play our role in making sure households have access to everything they need and want during COVID-19. This expansion is fantastic news for our customers, who can now enjoy an even wider choice of great quality food in as little as 30 minutes.”
