CHECK US OUT! ALDI IRELAND TO TRIAL SELF-SERVICE CHECKOUTS

Trial will see new machines rolled out in select stores across the country

ALDI Ireland has begun the installation of self-service checkouts at 21 select stores.

The first ALDI store to trial the new checkout system was Monread, Naas, Co. Kildare, and it has proven very popular with customers since the launch.

A number of these trial checkouts are also in operation at some ALDI stores in Co. Dublin, including Sallynoggin, Newlands Cross and Coolock. Following a recent Project Fresh upgrade, ALDI’s Castleisland, Kerry store will be the next store to implement the new checkouts, which will be in operation from Thursday 6th June.

Throughout June and July, 16* further stores – in counties Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Kerry, Cavan, and Clare – will see self-service checkouts come into operation.

ALDI’s self-service checkout terminals will allow customers to pay by cash or card and contactless payments. Existing staffed checkout lines will remain in operation alongside the new self-service tills, with ALDI committed to retaining this service for customers, while continuing to innovate with new initiatives.

Commenting on the new self-service checkouts, Colin Breslin, Managing Director of Buying & Services at ALDI Ireland said: “We’re always looking at ways to enhance and improve the in-store experience for our customers. We believe these new checkouts will help with that experience and we look forward to seeing and hearing how our customers respond to the availability of this additional option.

“As well as providing outstanding quality products at unbeatable prices, we are focused on giving our customers an efficient and simple experience in our store.”

ALDI currently operates 161 stores across Ireland, with a presence in each of the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland. The retailer employs more than 4,650 people in Ireland.
