Stores to open from 8am – 11pm

In the run-up to Christmas, ALDI is extending its opening hours, opening from 8am during the Christmas weekend to give shoppers more time to pick up last-minute essentials ahead of the big day.

For late shoppers, opening hours will also be extended until 11pm*. Stores will also be open until 7pm on Christmas Eve, but customers are advised to check details of their local stores online to avoid disappointment.

ALDI will close its stores as usual on Christmas Day and will once again remain closed on St Stephen’s Day to allow colleagues get a much-needed break – as it has always done since opening in Ireland almost 25 years ago.

The majority of stores will be open from 9am until 9pm between Christmas and New Year, and until 7pm on New Year’s Eve so shoppers can squeeze in some last-minute shopping at unbeatable value before the new year!

Commenting, Colin Breslin, ALDI Managing Director of Buying and Services, said: “By extending our opening hours in the run up to Christmas, we can ensure that our customers have time to stock up on everything they need for an amazing Christmas. It is really important that shoppers can avail of our award-winning range of food and drink offerings at market leading prices, as well as select from our wide range of Specialbuys that will make the perfect stocking filler this Christmas.

“We also would like to acknowledge and thank our dedicated colleagues who consistently deliver an excellent shopping experience to members of their local communities every day, and even more so during the busy Christmas period. To allow everyone have a well-earned break, we will be maintaining our tradition of keeping our stores closed on St Stephen’s Day.”

Customers can also book their Christmas collection slot online from 17th November, with 20 stores offering ALDI’s Click and Collect service between 20th and 23rd December. To find out more about booking Click and Collect slots for Christmas, please visit
