Aldi grocery deliveries are not free

Aldi supermarket deliveries are now free in Ireland, following a similar move last year.

Aldi will now provide free delivery to shoppers with a credit card.

The delivery service is available in all areas of the country, including Dublin, Cork, Galway and Dublin city.

A company spokesman told TheJournal.ie that the change is not an official announcement from the company, but is “part of the evolution of our business”.

“This is the first step in our journey to deliver Aldi’s groceries to all customers, both on the shelves and online,” the spokesman said.

Online shoppers will no longer have to pay Aldi for the privilege of ordering a package from the supermarket.

They will instead pay Aldis credit card when they enter their details online.

Online orders will be delivered via Aldi staff.

“The Aldi app is now available for all customers to take advantage of the new delivery service,” a company spokesperson said.

A number of major grocery chains including Tesco, Asda, Lidl, Marks & Spencer, Tesco and Safeway are offering the service, with more to follow.
