Guide to How Aldi’s Click & Collect works in the UK…
What is Aldi’s Click & Collect?
Click & Collect is an online grocery shopping platform from Aldi that makes it possible for shoppers to get what they want without visiting Aldi stores in person. This online service is focused on providing a hassle-free online shopping experience where customers can order fruits and veggies online and have them delivered outside their preferred store, contact-free.
After ordering, customers can also choose to cancel their orders if they wish to. It is possible for the shoppers to cancel all orders up until 11:59 pm the night before collection from their accounts. If, however, one decides to cancel their order before collection, they will be required to contact customer support. For both cases, you will not be charged at all for canceling your order.
