The extension will bring the total number of stores trialing the new service to three after two stores began testing it in parts of Staffordshire and the East Midlands earlier this month.

Customers are now able to order from a full range of groceries online from then collect them, in pre-booked one-hour collection slots, from the supermarket’s store in Bretton.

If successful, the trial will be extended to other stores across the country in the near future.

Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK and Ireland, said said: “Aldi’s quality products and unbeatable prices have never been so in demand.

“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 already trialling a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo.

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