Calling all F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans… could Aldi’s new gifting range BE more perfect?
14 Nov 2019


Oh. My. Gaaawd! Shoppers will be as shocked as Janice when they find out that for the first time Aldi are launching a F.R.I.E.N.D.S range, just in time for Christmas. Take a trip down memory lane with Aldi’s gifting range that pays homage to one of the most iconic 90s tv series.

Take box-set binges up a notch and treat fans to Aldi’s 90s Friends Pyjama Set for just £8.99. These soft and stylish pyjamas make the perfect present for lovers of the show to relax in over the Christmas break.

Hasn’t been your day, week or year? Make duvet days even cosier with this snug 90s Double Duvet Set (£14.99) in a selection of fun F.R.I.E.N.D.S designs. Pair with Aldi’s matching Cushions (£5.99) with three designs to choose from featuring classic quotes such as ‘They don’t know that we know they know we know’  that fans will love.

Settle in for hours of comedy genius with a steaming cup of coffee with Aldi’s Friends Drinks Assortment available as a Central Perk cappuccino mug, Joey’s favourite one liner ‘How You Doin’ Mug and for drinks on the go, the F.R.I.E.N.D.S Travel Mug. They’re also the perfect stocking filler or secret Santa gift at just £4.99!
 
But remember, shoppers will have to be quick because as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone! After all, as Joey says, what’s not to like?!

Notes to editors:
Aldi is Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with over 830 stores and 32,000 employees.
The company has more than doubled its market share since 2010. In the 12 weeks to 11th August 2019, Aldi grew sales by 6.2% and achieved an 8.1% share of the UK grocery market (Kantar Worldpanel data). By 2025, Aldi will operate over 1,200 stores.
Aldi is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its range of exclusive brands, passing low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.
The supermarket believes in making every day amazing and that’s why every single day Aldi delivers on the best possible value for millions of families throughout the UK and Ireland across everything from award-winning fresh produce to world class gin.
Aldi won’t be beaten on price; consistently racks up award after award for quality; treats its suppliers with fairness and respect and recognises the responsibility of supporting valued institutions such as Team GB to demonstrate the importance of health and wellness. That’s Aldi. That’s everyday amazing. The reason they do this? Because Aldi believes that everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food…it’s a right, not a privilege.
The company’s current achievements and initiatives include:
  • Aldi was crowned ‘Grocer of the Year’ 2018 at the Grocer Gold Awards.
  • Aldi is the UK’s lowest priced supermarket. The Grocer’s weekly price comparison of 33 supermarket products found that a weekly shop at Aldi was 14% cheaper than its nearest competitor (The Grocer – 7th March)
  • Aldi has a five-year partnership with 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’s rates of pay are significantly higher than the Government’s National Living Wage and also above the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended national rates. Store Assistants receive a minimum hourly rate of £9.10 nationally and £10.55 in London.
  • Aldi is the official supermarket partner of Team GB and ensures every member of the team has access to fresh healthy Aldi food via monthly shopping vouchers, and that 1.2 million 5-14 year olds will learn about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food via its Get Set to Eat Fresh education initiative. Aldi has been a partner since 2015 and has extended its commitment to the 2024 Olympic games in Paris.
  • In 2018, for the fifth 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.
