ALDI is now offering a trial click and collect service in Highbridge, Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet.

The extension will bring the total number of stores trialling the new service to four in Somerset, following the Taunton launch last month.

Giles Hurley, chief executive officer, Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “Aldi’s quality products and unbeatable prices have never been so in demand.

“Extending this trial is about providing thousands more of our existing customers with another convenient way to shop with us, while also making Aldi accessible for many others who may not have shopped with us before.”

Customers will now be able to order from a full range of groceries online, then collect them, in pre-booked one-hour collection slots.

Aldi is to extend its trial of click and collect to over 200 additional stores by Christmas.
