Aldi extends click & collect service with 8 more stores

Value supermarket chain Aldi has rolled out its click & collect service to eight more locations, according to the Grocer.

Just a month after launching click & collect in Loughborough, the retailer is now offering the service in Peterborough, Newark in Nottinghamshire, Stoke-on-Trent and across four stores in Derbyshire.

The latest opening in Ashby, Leicestershire, joins the trial today, with a further six stores added to the roll-out by the end of the month.

Last month Aldi announced plans to invest a whopping £1.3 billion in to modernising its stores and distribution networks, crucially placing a major focus on its fledgling online offering.

The retailer is also in the process of doubling the number of items available for home delivery via the Deliveroo app, as it continues its push into e-commerce.

The expansion into e-commerce may have been spurred on by changing shopper habits in the time of coronavirus, but market investors have said Aldi’s trials could see it gain even more market share from its competitors.
