Aldi CEO Giles Hurley advised opening hours would remain the same in the email update. What is more, shelves are well stocked and thanks to regular deliveries shoppers do not need shop in any other way than how they normally would. He also revealed that “everyone’s favourite Carrot” might be visiting stores as they begin to stock Christmas products.

CEO Mr Hurley went on: “Our shelves are fully-stocked and every Aldi store gets regular deliveries, at least once a day.

“There’s no need to buy more than normal, so please shop considerately.”

Safety measures are still in place there including traffic light systems at entrances to ensure social distancing in stores.

There are social distancing markers on the floor and protecting screens at all checkouts.

There is an increased contactless limit of £45 and shoppers are encouraged to pay by card.

What are Aldi’s opening times?

The letter read: “As restrictions across the UK continue to evolve, I want to reassure all of our customers that every Aldi store will remain open as normal during this time.

“The majority of our stores are open from 8am – 10pm every day (Sundays 10am – 4pm) and our amazing colleagues are on hand to help you shop safely and find everything you need in store.

Shopping alone is encouraged and stores remain open 30 minutes early for vulnerable and elderly customers.
