John Curtin, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland said today:

“We know that the return of Specialbuys will come as welcome news to our loyal customers throughout Ireland. Our hard-working staff will make sure that the shelves are fully stocked with all of the items you know and love to see in Aldi, as well as some new surprises over the festive season. So whether it’s a stocking filler, a kitchen gadget, a book or even a Christmas jumper for your dog, you’ll have plenty of time to pick these up before the big day on the 25th December!”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Aldi postponed the sale of all non-essential product Specialbuy promotions in October following the introduction of Level 5 COVID-19 restrictions.  Aldi has been fully supportive of the Government’s actions to combat COVID-19, and has been at the forefront of the retail response to the pandemic, keeping supply chains open and food supplies moving throughout.

Safey measures at Aldi stores include:

This system, with your cooperation, enables us to ensure appropriate social distancing in the stores.
  • Clear markers show the space customers must maintain if required to queue for a short time before entering the stores.
  • Clear protective screens at every till.
  • Clear markings to show the 2m distance you should maintain when paying for your shopping at the checkouts.
  • A self-service cleaning station upon entry to stores for cleaning both trolleys and baskets.
