ALDI’S NEW SCHOOL UNIFORM WILL SAVE PARENTS A BUNDLE
20 Jun 2019


  • Best-selling school uniform bundle is 10% cheaper than last year
 
Supermarket Aldi, is helping families get prepped for the school year early, with the return of its best-selling school uniform bundle for a bargain price of £4.50 – 10% cheaper than last year! The range will be available to purchase in stores from Thursday 11th July and available to pre-order online from Sunday 7th July, to avoid last minute panic before summer kicks off.
 
The 2019 school uniform bundle is 10% cheaper than last year and includes two Polo Shirts (£1.75/2 pack), one Sweatshirt (£1.00) and either a pair of Boy’s/Girl’s Trousers (£1.75) or Pleated Skirt (£1.75) - perfect for kitting out kids for the all-important start of term photo.
 
Mums across the UK have also given Aldi’s Back to School uniform their official stamp of approval after one year’s use, through testimonials on the Aldi Shoppers UK Facebook group. Cheryl O’Hara, mum from Lincolnshire, praised the uniform for being “still like new” and that “the white polo shirts are still white, which is amazing considering how much paint and dirt they’ve had on!” The uniform trousers have also held up to knee slide testing as confirmed by Wilma Jane Stevenson, mum from Falkirk Scotland, “my 6-year-old son’s trousers were in such excellent condition after a year of hard wear, I was able to hand them to a friend for her son to use!” 
 
The full Back to School range comes in a variety of sizes, suitable from 3 to 11 years and this year welcomes a brand new addition - the Jersey Trousers/Skirt (£2.79), alongside last year’s favourite Jersey Pinafore (£6.99/2 pack). Aldi is also partnered with the ‘Cotton made in Africa’ (CmiA) initiative, to source sustainable cotton, certified to the Cotton made in Africa standard, supporting the work of the initiative with the Back to School range. The partnership will help improve living conditions for African cotton farmers and their families as well as protecting nature.

This year choose from either the new Jersey Trousers/Skirt (£2.79) or Jersey Pinafore (£6.99/2 pack).  Select the stylish, yet durable, Boy’s/Girl’s Trousers (£1.75), a Pleated Skirt (£1.75) or Aldi’s great-value Girl’s Classic Pinafore (£6.99/2 pack), which comes with permanent pleats, cutting down on ironing time this school year!  All available in navy, black and grey.
