Aldi adds 22 stores to Deliveroo on-demand trial

Aldi is doubling the size of its trial with Deliveroo to reach a further 22 stores.

Customers within 6km of the stores will be able to order around 400 essential grocery items from Aldi via the Deliveroo app.

The service initially launched in June from 20 stores across London, Greater Manchester, Cambridge and the Midlands. It may be extended to further stores if it continues to be successful.

Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi UK, said: “The feedback on our trial with Deliveroo has been very positive so far, with customers really valuing being able to have more ways of getting Aldi’s quality food at unbeatable prices, as recently recognised by Which? who found a basket of items was 23% cheaper at Aldi than at Tesco.

“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.”

Ajay Lakhwani, VP of new business, Deliveroo said: “Deliveroo’s on-demand grocery partnerships have proven vital for so many people during this difficult period, allowing families to get the food and household items they need and want quickly.

“The success of this trial reflects the strong customer desire for groceries on-demand, an area in which Deliveroo is providing increasing choice.”
