ALDI has announced when its 160 stores will be open over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
ALDI’s stores will be open as normal on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August, with stores open between 9am-9pm on Monday 7th August. However, Monday opening times vary slightly at certain stores*, so customers should ensure that they check details on ALDI’s website before their trip.
ALDI has everything customers need to make the Bank Holiday weekend amazing at unbeatable prices, including international award-winning Bord Bia Assured Irish steak range and new season Irish strawberries as well as barbecues and garden furniture to help you get summer ready.
ALDI also offers a Click and Collect service in 20 stores, meaning shoppers will be able to purchase high-quality groceries online at unbeatable prices.

Here are some saving tips ahead of the August Bank Holiday weekend to help shop smarter when doing your weekly food shop.
1. Beware of BOGOF deals
Some shoppers might have noticed that ALDI don’t usually do any ‘buy one get one free’ deals.
If you do see these offers in other shops, weigh up first whether the deal is worth it or if you actually need more than one of the products you’re buying.
ALDI has no plans to introduce any BOGOF deals. Instead, we are committed to simply offering the lowest prices and highest-quality products every single day.
2. Look out for red stickers
All of ALDI’s 160 Irish stores mark down perishable products such as bread, meat and produce by 30% or 75% on their last day of life, with lots of products suitable for home freezing if you don’t want to eat them right away.
This initiative offers customers even lower prices while cutting back on waste.
The times that items are reduced vary by store and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to
keep an eye out for red stickers next time you’re in ALDI to avoid missing out.
3. Avail of a Too Good to Go ‘Surprise Bag’
ALDI works closely with its partner Too Good to Go to make surplus food bags available nationwide in a bid to tackle food waste and offer even lower prices to customers.
The ‘Surprise Bags’ contain a range of products that are approaching their sell-by or use-by dates at a third of the price, costing just €3.99 each to purchase. To avail of a Surprise Bag, shoppers can download the free Too Good To Go app and search for their nearby ALDI store before reserving a bag to collect from the store at an allotted time.
4. Look out for ALDI’s fantastic own-brand products
While it can be tempting to grab the brands you recognise, by ignoring own brands you might be missing out
on products that are a fraction of the price.
Most of the products at ALDI are own-brand, and we are proud to boast an award-winning range! Private label has become increasingly popular amongst Irish shoppers, with 220 products currently in ALDI’s Specially Selected core range.
5. Stay informed
ALDI might not offer BOGOF deals, but you can still sometimes spot Specialbuy discounts on anything from
electricals to garden furniture.
Keep up to date with current and upcoming Specialbuys by signing up to ALDI’s newsletter here to ensure you
always bag the best deals before they get snapped up!
ALDI also has fortnightly Super 6 deals on seasonal fruit and veg, as well as meat and fish which are promoted in leaflets in-store so you can always know what’s coming ahead of time.
6. And finally… Switch your supermarket
If you’ve only ever done your shop at one supermarket, you might not realise how much money you could be
ALDI currently stocks over 1,800 products and works with over 330 Irish suppliers. Providing the very best food and drink offering in terms of quality, price and value is our priority, and we remain focused on shielding customers from price increases as much as possible.
This means you could be significantly lowering the cost of your weekly shop without compromising on quality, just by switching supermarkets to ALDI. Changing your supermarket doesn’t mean you have to change your lifestyle!
