Yes I thought so too. It seems they broke beauty over the three weekends, 8th, 15th and 22nd March.Anyone else thinking this section has a lot less than the normal offerings
A message from Aldi CEO Giles Hurley
As you will be aware, all supermarkets have been working very hard to keep up with demand over the last few days.
I am writing to reassure you, and all our other valued customers, that our colleagues and trusted suppliers are working round the clock to keep our warehouses fully stocked.
We have increased orders from our suppliers and our warehouses have sufficient stock to replenish all stores. This includes all of the essentials such as sanitary and baby products.
Our amazing colleagues have been working tirelessly to restock our stores. However, unprecedented demand for certain products has made it difficult for us to ensure that there are no gaps on shelves.
All of our stores receive daily deliveries, often multiple times a day. So if a certain product is not available when you visit, it will be replenished in the overwhelming majority of cases by the following day.
We have taken action to discourage people buying more than they need. Customers are currently limited to buying four items of any one product during each visit. This is still significantly more than most customers would buy in a normal shopping trip and we hope this temporary restriction will give as many customers as possible the opportunity to get what they need, every time they visit.
I’m sure, like me, you are also concerned about those who are vulnerable at this time. Not everyone has the financial or practical resources to buy in bulk, including our elderly customers. We all have a responsibility to ensure we only buy what we and our families need. If we shop as we normally do, our stores will quickly return to normal.
Finally, my sincere thanks to you for your continued support and to every single one of our colleagues. It’s the people at Aldi that make our business special and they have come together like never before to serve you, our customers, during this extremely busy time.
With very best wishes,
I ordered the rattan garden corner sofa recently and I am very pleased with it.Also like the look of the pretty garden bar b q stuff, frenchie tables chairs, lights & the false trelis. Quite expensive though. Bound to be shite after rain. Has anyone tried the bigger ticket garden items....(shopps?)
I'd look a right spaz dragging in a hedge for a refund. Still reeling from when I didn't know how to'plug' the trolley back in to get the pound back - grumpy masked Indian door patrol (social distancing) had to come & show me after shouting loud instructions to no avail.....You don't have to 'pay' for trollies in Waitrose!
