// Aldi extends click-and-collect trial to first Scottish store
// The Basin View store in Montrose is the first in Scotland to trial the service, before being rolled out to Whitburn later this month
// More than 200 stores across the UK are now trialling Aldi’s click-and-collect service
Aldi is launching click-and-collect services in Scotland for the first time after extending its trial to its Montrose store.
From today, customers will be able to order from a full range of groceries online then collect them, in pre-booked one-hour collection slots from the Basin View store in Montrose.
Customers can also choose to have their shopping loaded into their boot by an Aldi staff member, so they can collect their shopping without ever having to leave their car.

On arrival at dedicated click-and-collect points in the store car park, customers will be able to have their shopping brought to their cars by Aldi colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
More than 200 stores across the UK are now trialling the German grocer’s click-and-collect service.
Aldi’s Basin View store is the first store in Scotland to trial the service, which will also be rolled out to its Whitburn store later this month.
“Aldi’s quality products and unbeatable prices have never been so in demand,” Aldi UK chief executive Giles Hurley said.
“Extending this trial is about providing thousands more of our existing customers with another convenient way to shop with us, while also making Aldi accessible for many others who may not have shopped with us before.”
Aldi currently has 96 stores throughout Scotland and is set to reach its 100th store milestone by the end of the year.
As well as click-and-collect, the retailer is also trialling a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo and has recently extended the trial to almost 130 stores across the UK.
Customers living near selected stores can order from a range of around 400 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep as soon as 20 minutes.
