Aldi has extended its trial of on-demand grocery deliveries to the capital for the first time after launching with Deliveroo in Camden.
The supermarket first started offering an on-demand delivery service last month.
Following a successful start in eight stores across the Midlands, it has decided to extend the trial to Camden.
Customers will be able to order from around 200 essential Aldi products, which will be picked and packed by Aldi colleagues for delivery by Deliveroo’s network of riders.
They will then be delivered to addresses within around two miles of Aldi Local in Camden – including West Hampstead, Belsize Park and Mayfair – in as little as 30 minutes. This is especially helpful for those who are isolating at home.
Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi, said: “In the three weeks since we launched our partnership with Deliveroo, feedback from customers has been very positive.
“Extending that partnership to around 100,000 people living near our Camden store will make it even easier for them to access great-quality, affordable food at Aldi’s unbeatable prices.”
If successful, the Deliveroo service could be launched to more stores across the UK before the end of the year.

Aldi is the first supermarket to stop using plastic shrink-wrapping on its own-label multipack soft drink cans.
The UK’s fifth-largest supermarket has replaced all plastic on its soft drink cans with 100% recyclable, FSC-certified cardboard, saving over 90 tonnes of plastic each year.
