Aldi: Supermarket set to make change to most UK stores this Bank Holiday weekend


Britons will be celebrating an extra day off work this weekend as August 30 marks a national Bank Holiday. Some companies will see changes being made to their stores, including Aldi.

On Sunday, branches will open at 10am and close at 4pm.

Monday will see shops opening their doors at 8am and closing at 8pm.

The above opening hours refer to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Scotland’s opening times may vary, and so customers should check their local store’s details before their trip.

Shoppers can order Aldi products online before driving to their local store to pick them up.

Aldi does not deliver to customers’ homes, but the supermarket’s partnership with Deliveroo means the food delivery company does.

Customers can shop from a range of 600 Aldi products via the Deliveroo app and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as 20 minutes.

In other Aldi news, the supermarket has said it will be installing fridge doors to all its new and newly refurbished stores.

Following its successful trial, the change will help save the equivalent of over 2,000 tonnes of carbon emissions a year.

The new fridges will also help to reduce each store’s energy consumption by approximately 20 percent, saving up to 20 tonnes per store each year.

Mary Dunn, Managing Director of Corporate Responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “We are always looking for new ways to minimise our carbon footprint, which is why all our stores already use 100 percent renewable electricity, and our new stores also utilise natural refrigerants and feature efficient LED lighting.

“Introducing fridge doors is another step on that journey to reduce our energy consumption and we hope that customers can enjoy the new, more sustainable shopping experience.”
