ALDI COVID-19 UPDATE – Aldi lifts restrictions on almost all products and introduces sanitisation stations

Aldi is lifting purchase restrictions on all products from Monday next week (6 April), with the exception of the following three items:

  • Hand Wash (maximum 4 products)
  • Shower Gel (maximum 4 products)
  • UHT Milk (maximum 2 products)

The relaxing of purchase limits follows a return to stable levels of trading and good availability across all Aldi stores.

From this weekend, customers will also be offered wipes to disinfect trolleys and baskets when they enter Aldi stores.

As a further measure to improve customer safety, Aldi is introducing new priority shopping hours for elderly or vulnerable customers who have no option but to visit stores.

From Monday, exclusive access will be given to stores for elderly and vulnerable customers 30 minutes before normal opening times, Monday to Saturday.

Early opening on Sundays will continue to be reserved for NHS and emergency workers.

Customers will also be able to use their contactless card for transactions up to £45, as contactless limits increase from Monday. This will allow more customers to pay without cash or contact with payment terminals.
