Aldi ditches 30-minute delivery service – full list of stores affected

SHOPPERS will no longer be able to get Aldi groceries delivered to their door.

The discount supermarket has ended its relationship with Deliveroo, which it used to get food to doorsteps within 30 minutes in some areas.

Aldi started offering delivery via Deliveroo at the beginning of the pandemic in May 2020, eventually rolling it out to 129 stores.

Millions of Brits started shopping online when coronavirus hit, although supermarkets were allowed to stay open.

If you lived within 6km of one of Aldi's stores offering the service, you could have select items delivered to your home within just half an hour.

It was the only way to order Aldi groceries online as the supermarket doesn't offer online delivery for food, only some Specialbuys.

Home deliveries were never part of Aldi's long-term business model, it said and it is prioritising its click and collect service instead.

Facebook user Neil Cox wrote: "The disappearance of Aldi from Deliveroo is a harsh and cruel blow."

An Aldi spokesperson told The Sun: “We have decided to end our trial with Deliveroo to focus on our click and collect service, which remains on offer at more than 200 of our stores nationwide.”

Click and collect remains available at more than 200 of Aldi's 930 UK stores.

Find your nearest via Aldi's store locator tool and a pickup slot costs £4.99.

Once you've chosen when you'd like your pickup to be, simply do your online shopping and show up when the time is right.

Which Aldi stores are ending delivery?

Aldi delivery through Deliveroo was offered at 129 stores and around 400 items were available.

Using the service cost more than going to the store as you had to pay a delivery fee on top, plus prices could be more than those on the supermarket's aisles.

Aldi opened its first checkout-free supermarket in the UK this week – with Sun Money on location to try out the strange experience.

The budget grocery giant was also found to be the nation's cheapest supermarket chain in a new Which? survey.

And last week Aldi vowed to keep prices low as inflation bites.
