ALDI is launching click and collect services in Kidderminster for the first time after extending its trial to the store in Silverwoods Way.

The extension will bring the total number of stores trialling the new service to 21 after the supermarket began testing it in parts of Staffordshire and the East Midlands in September.

Customers can now order from a full range of groceries online then collect them in pre-booked one-hour collection slots.

On arrival at dedicated click and collect points in the store car park, customers will be able to have their shopping brought to their cars by Aldi colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.

Aldi is set to extend its trial to over 200 additional stores by Christmas.

Giles Hurley, chief executive officer at Aldi, said: “Extending this trial is about providing thousands more of our existing customers with another convenient way to shop with us, while also making Aldi accessible for many others who may not have shopped with us before.”

As well as click and collect, Aldi is also trialling a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo.

Customers living near selected stores in the East Midlands, London, Cambridge and Greater Manchester can order from a range of over 300 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as 30 minutes.
