Aldi has confirmed it will close all of its stores on Boxing Day in line with previous years, to once again thank its colleagues for all their hard work.
Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket will close on the 25th and 26th December and reopen as usual on Wednesday 27th, so customers can pick up their New Year essentials.
Opening hours will vary in the build-up to Christmas, with Aldi operating extended hours to ensure customers can stock up ahead of the big day.
Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “We recognise that Christmas is an important time for many of our colleagues, and keeping our stores closed on Boxing Day gives them more time to spend with their families.
“Customers will have plenty to look forward to in the run-up to Christmas, with more of Aldi’s brand-new Christmas ranges arriving in stores over the next few weeks.”
The supermarket also recently announced it is recruiting 3,000 store roles to bolster its team ahead of the festive period, with roles including Store Assistants, managerial positions and cleaners.
Starting pay for Store Assistants at Aldi is an industry-leading £11.40 per hour nationally, and £12.85 per hour inside the M25. Aldi also remains the only supermarket in the UK to offer paid breaks.

Aldi is spreading the festive cheer and bringing together local communities by donating Christmas lunches to those in low-income areas across the UK.
Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket is working in partnership with Company Shop Group to provide free Christmas dinners at Community Shops in the run-up to Christmas.
Aldi has announced when its stores will be open over Christmas and New Year.
From Monday 18th December to Saturday 23rd December, shoppers can visit Aldi stores between 7am and 10pm to pick up everything they need to celebrate Christmas, at the lowest possible prices.
