Aldi shoppers across the UK will notice a change outside the front of some stores with the supermarket giant trialling parcel lockers.

Throughout March, InPost lockers will be available outside 22 Aldi stores across the country (a list of which can be found below).

Customers will be able to collect and return online orders from other retailers at these Aldi stores, thanks to the supermarket’s new partnership with InPost.

The trial will conclude after a 12-week period, with the aim to roll it out to more stores if successful.

Communications Director at Aldi UK, Richard Thornton, said: “We are all about making things efficient for our customers, and the installation of InPost lockers will make shopping at Aldi even more convenient.

“People can collect or return parcels while they are doing their shopping, with the lockers accessible with a QR code. If the trial is successful, this will hopefully be something available to lots more of our shoppers later this year.”

CEO at InPost International, Michael Rouse, said: “We’re on a mission to bring unrivalled parcel convenience to shoppers in the UK, and this trial with Aldi does just that. 

“With over 6,000 parcel lockers in the UK, we offer hassle-free delivery options that easily integrate into shoppers’ daily routines.

"In this case, Aldi customers can now pick up and drop off their parcels with ease and efficiency while doing the weekly shop.

"We look forward to seeing the results from the trial and the start of a successful partnership.”
