Aldi is testing out a new grocery home delivery service in Ireland for the first time in partnership with Deliveroo.
From today, Aldi said it will offer a rapid delivery service from its East Wall store in Dublin 3, before extending the trial to Terenure in Dublin 6 on Wednesday.
Customers will be able to order from over 140 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app. These will be picked and packed by Aldi staff and will be delivered via Deliveroo's network riders.
All orders will be fulfilled by Deliveroo riders contact-free to ensure safe delivery for customers.
Aldi said it will start off with a range of essential items, such as bread, milk and fresh produce, which will be delivered to customers' homes in as little as 30 minutes.
The trial is the first major on-demand convenience partnership for Deliveroo in Ireland.
If successful, Aldi said the delivery service could roll out to further Aldi stores by the end of the year.
"We hope the new trial with Deliveroo will provide more customers with access to great quality, affordable food at Aldi," commented Niall O'Connor, Group Managing Director at Aldi UK and Ireland.
"This is a new and exciting venture for Aldi and we will be constantly reviewing how we can best serve our customers and continue to provide them with the high quality products they are used to in store," he added.
