Aldi doubles size of Deliveroo trial

Aldi is to double the size of its trial of on-demand grocery deliveries with Deliveroo.

The trial, which has been ongoing out of 20 stores across London, Greater Manchester, Cambridge and the Midlands since early summer, is now being extended to a further 22 stores across the UK - including Bristol, Liverpool and Brighton.

Customers within a six kilometre radius of the 42 participating stores will be able to choose from around 400 essential Aldi grocery items. Once orders are placed through the Deliveroo app, products are picked and packed by Aldi colleagues before being delivered by Deliveroo’s network of riders in as little as 30 minutes.

Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi UK, said: “The feedback on our trial with Deliveroo has been very positive so far.

“This extension takes the partnership into new areas for the first time, including cities like Bristol and Liverpool amongst dozens of others across the country.”

If it continues to prove successful, the Deliveroo service could be extended to more stores across the UK in the coming weeks.

Last month, Aldi pledged to invest £1.3 billion over the next two years, including in new and upgraded stores and other business innovations.
