Aldi is just one supermarket that has had to change its way of operating this year. To help make customers’ shopping experience more enjoyable this week, Aldi CEO, Giles Hurley, updated shoppers with the new shopping rules and opening hours.
“Please check the opening times for your local store via our store locator. Our stores will be closed on Boxing Day to give our hard-working colleagues some time off with their families.”
To help ensure staff and customers stay safe while shopping during the festive period, there are safety measures in place to adhere to.
The letter added: “All of our current safety measures remain in place at your local Aldi, including a traffic light system at store entrances managing the number of people in-store, Perspex screens at all checkouts, sanitisation stations for your hands, trolleys and baskets, with clear signage reminding everyone to shop safely.”
The discount retailer is also urging one person per household to enter the stores to help customers maintain social distance rules in-store.
