Aldi has announced that, from today (Saturday 28/03/2020), all NHS, Police and Fire Service workers are to be allowed priority access to stores around the clock.
Where store colleagues are limiting the number of customers in store, any emergency workers with a relevant form of ID will be allowed to enter the store as soon as social distancing guidelines permit.
The move means that those who may be finding it hard to shop for groceries due to working long shifts to protect others will not have to wait in queues outside store before being able to buy what they need.
Earlier this week, Aldi announced that it would be opening half an hour early tomorrow (Sunday) morning solely for key workers in the NHS, Police and Fire Service as a thank-you for all they are doing.
All Aldi asks is that workers in those emergency services bring a form of ID, such as an NHS card, whenever they come to store.
Last night The Great British Bake Off featured caterpillar cakes in Party Week of the popular baking show. The technical challenge saw the quarter finalists take on the task of making a caterpillar cake.
The UK’s favourite supermarket couldn’t resist responding to the episode with a series of social posts, including an open letter to Channel 4, which shoppers have found hilarious. It reads:
“To Channel 4, We are intellectual caterpillar counsel to Aldi UK. We write to you regarding Channel 4’s violation of Cuthbert’s rights. Aldi has always been a big fan of the Great British Bake Off, and we’ve long craved a Hollywood handshake… But tonight’s episode really took the biscuit.”
