Aldi launches £4 school uniform which rivals Marks & Spencer's quality, saving parents up to 74%
30 Jun 2016


Discount supermarket Aldi is set to launch a Back To School uniform package for just £4 this July, which independent tests have proven rivals[1] the Marks and Spencer uniform range, offering parents a 74% saving.
 
On sale instore and online from 14th July and available whilst stocks last, the £4 price for the uniform package covers all primary school ages (4-11 years). The package includes two polo shirts, one round neck jumper and either a pair of trousers or a skirt, making Aldi’s range the most competitive of all UK supermarkets2.
 
For the first time, Aldi’s Back to School range will be available to pre-order online from 7th July meaning parents can have the autumn term all sewn up before the end of the school year. The range includes everything from uniform essentials like scuff-resistant shoes, socks, and tights to PE kits, backpacks and other accessories, making Aldi the one-stop-shop for all parents.

Tony Baines, Managing Director for Corporate Buying at Aldi comments: “Our £4 uniform offers not only great value but also incredible quality. The price and quality reassurance means we’re giving parents the chance to put aside worries about expensive new uniforms. What’s more, they can get everything sorted before the summer holidays even begin – something our customers have told us they love!

“The Aldi school uniform package costs the same across all sizes and can be bought on our website as well as in our stores, so it couldn’t be easier for parents to stock up on this great-value, excellent quality range.”
