Discount stores Aldi and Lidl are amongst the supermarkets which have had to adapt during the coronavirus pandemic. As the UK heads into its second lockdown, there are new measures put in place at both of the stores that shoppers must adhere to while food shopping.
In a letter to its customers, Aldi CEO, Giles Hurley, outlined the new measures put in place nationwide.
It read: “As restrictions across the UK continue to evolve, I want to reassure all of our customers that every Aldi store will remain open as normal during this time.
“The majority of our stores are open from 8am-10pm every day (Sundays 10am-4pm) and our amazing colleagues are on hand to help you shop safely and find everything you need in store.”
Mr Hurley also urged customers to shop for what they need and to not stockpile.

Aldi is currently one of the only supermarkets with no buying limits on any items.
The letter continued: “Our shelves are fully-stocked and every Aldi store gets regular deliveries, at least once a day. There’s no need to buy more than normal, so please shop considerately.”
All stores have also implemented a traffic light system at entrances to help the flow of customers in the store.
Stores across the country now have protective screens as well as sanitisation stations for customer use.
