23 Feb 2018


Pet owners would be barking mad to miss the unbelievable savings in Aldi’s brand new Pet Event range, available to pre-order online from 18th February and in stores from 22nd February. With a selection of premium products on sale, from toys and towels, to cages and cat caves, the range is sure to impress. Buyers must be quick though, as with all Specialbuys ranges – once they’re gone, they’re gone!
 
With a carry handle for convenient travel, a plastic base insert for easy cleaning and a fold-away function for efficient storage, this Pet Cage (from £19.99) is a must-have for all pet owners. The cage comes in a variety of sizes, from small to XL, meaning shoppers can choose a cage size to perfectly accommodate their pooch. Pair with Aldi’s Cosy Pet Blanket (£7.99), to make sure the cage is extra snug. This Rubber Pet Mat (£2.99) is a fabulous addition to the cage, providing a non-slip solution to avoid future feeding-related spillages.
 
Introducing the new favourite snuggle spot for cats and dogs alike: this Pet Bed (£16.99) is available in a brown, grey, or black faux suede fabric and is sure to be a hit with furry friends.
 
Aldi’s Plastic Pet Bed (£14.99) is purrfect for pets of all sizes and made from shock-proof polypropylene with a ventilated base to stave off smells.
 
Make their night’s sleep extra snug with a Memory Foam Mattress (£12.99), designed with a dotty or paw print pattern, and guaranteed to provide the comfiest kip ever!
 
Aldi’s multi-function Cat Cave (£9.99) is perfect for feline friends. Available in a classy grey or coco colour scheme, this faux suede, machine-washable bed can be used as a secret hideaway or an open bed by simply pushing the top down.
 
Pet owners can avoid travel woes with this Pet Carrier (from £7.99), in sizes small and medium. The carrier comes in red, grey or black, and includes an integrated carry handle and metal wire door. There’s also a ‘fasten seat belt’ function for optimum safety whilst travelling in the car.
 
Cats will be ‘feline’ extra special with this Grumpy Cat Toy (£2.49), an officially branded toy inspired by the viral grumpy cat meme. Designed for safe and durable pet play and crafted from strong materials, this fun toy comes in three designs: grumpy cat, grumpy cat on a wand, and blind mouse.
 
Playing is key to ensure an active and heathy lifestyle. Aldi’s Tough Plush Dog Toy (£4.99) is a great way to keep pets engaged and let off some steam. Got a canine that loves to play ‘ruff’? This Super Tough Dog Toy (£4.99) is made from tough nylon with rubber noodles on the outer.
 
Combat the ‘post-walk dirty dog shake’ with this Waterproof Dog Coat (£7.99). With a water-resistant outer to keep pooches dry, a Sherpa fleece lining to keep in the warmth and adjustable chest straps, this coat is available in a range of sizes and suitable for all dogs.
 
Invest in these luxuriously soft Towels, Mats and Gloves (£4.99 each), plus the Dirty Dogz Dog Sensitive Shampoo and Deodorising Spray, costing just £1.99 each, and avoid a mucky pup! Aldi’s Pet Grooming Kit (£19.99) is just the thing to pamper pets. Including a pet clipper with four attachment combs suited to different fur lengths, maintenance oil to maintain for the blades, cleaning brush, blade cover, pet brush, pet nail file, pet nail clipper, and a set of scissors. The kit also comes with a nylon bag.
 
Hygienic and stylish, this Hooded Cat Litter Tray (£8.99) provides a practical solution for cat-owners. The tray is made from plastic and has a removable upper for easy cleaning, plus a translucent door to provide privacy whilst keeping bad smells at bay.
 
During the run up to spring nature-lovers can attract songbirds to their garden with this Premium Nesting Box (£6.99). Available in a range of colours and designs, these detailed bird houses provide a safe haven for Sparrows and Great Tits.

Notes to editors:
Aldi is the UK’s fifth largest supermarket with over 750 stores and over 30,000 employees.
The company has more than doubled its market share since 2010. In the 12 weeks to 28th January, Aldi grew sales by 16.2% and has a 6.9% share of the market (Kantar Worldpanel data).
Aldi is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its award-winning range of exclusive brands, passing low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.
In 2018 Aldi will open 70 new stores and by 2022 will operate over 1,000 stores.
 The company’s current achievements and initiatives include:
  • Aldi is the UK’s highest paying supermarket. Store Assistants receive a minimum hourly rate of £8.85 nationally and £10.20 in London. This is significantly higher than the Government’s National Living Wage and also above the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended national rates.
  • Aldi’s investment in people was recognised at the Grocer Gold Awards, which celebrate outstanding achievement and practice across the grocery sector – Aldi was crowned ‘Employer of the Year’ 2017.
  • Aldi has a five-year partnership with the Teenage Cancer Trust – its fundraising target of £5m will go towards helping the trust to reach out to every young person with cancer in the UK. 
  • Aldi launched its eCommerce platform in January 2016, selling a range of high quality wines and Specialbuys – receiving approximately over 11,000 orders per week.
  • Aldi is the official supermarket partner of Team GB, and has extended this commitment to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
  • Aldi is the lowest priced supermarket in the UK (The Grocer 33, published 13th January 2018).
  • In 2017, for the fourth consecutive year Aldi was ranked the best-performing supermarket for compliance with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, underlining its commitment to maintaining fair, predictable and sustainable prices within its supply chain.
  • Research from the Centre for economics and business research (Cebr) showed that the value of Aldi’s relationships with UK suppliers will increase by £2.2bn during the next five years to £6.7bn in 2022. Additionally, in 2016 Aldi supported 146,000 direct and indirect jobs in the UK and this figure is set to rise to 205,000 by 2022.
