Aldi Ireland is doubling the number of stores offering its on-demand home delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo, meaning over 1.5 million Irish shoppers will be able to avail of the service in the run up to Christmas.
Shoppers across the whole of Dublin, Cork City, Galway City and Limerick City can now benefit from the on-demand
The service was initially available from two Dublin stores in June but has since been expanded into a further four counties following a fantastic customer response.
Aldi initially offered around 140 essential items through the service but grew the product offering in September. Customers can order more than 350 products through the on-demand home delivery service and can have groceries delivered to their door in as little as 30 minutes. Since launch, customers have reported a satisfaction score of more than 95%.
Trends show that the top five items purchased nationally through the app are orange juice, fresh milk, mushrooms, peppers and chicken breasts. A wide variety of everyday staple items are also available through the app, including cooking and cleaning products, as well as other essential items, like babies’ nappies.
Commenting, Niall O’Connor, Aldi Group Managing Director, said: “1.5 million Irish shoppers can now benefit from our Deliveroo partnership, having our amazing quality groceries delivered directly to their door in as little as 30 minutes. This is vital when more people, in particular older vulnerable people, are at home and isolating. This is an exciting new venture for Aldi, and we look forward to continuing to expand our offering into the future.”
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo said: “At Deliveroo, we are doing everything we can to make sure that people get the food they need and want during this unprecedented time. We are pleased to partner with Aldi to deliver even more choice to our customers as they continue to keep safe at home.”
