Aldi has confirmed details of all the Special buy products which have been delayed due to the Suez Canal blockage.

The German budget retailer published details of the items being delayed from reaching the branches of its budget supermarkets.

Aldi has confirmed that the blockage of the Suez Canal for almost a week earlier this month had contributed to the delays, according to The Grocer.

On March 29, salvage teams freed the Ever Given after a six-day shutdown, ending a crisis that had clogged one of the world’s most vital waterways and halted billions of dollars a day.

In a post shared to its Facebook page last week, Aldi said: “We’re sorry, the Specialbuys you’re looking for may have been delayed due to current events.”

These are the delayed items:

  • Travel cot – expected late April, after being advertised 28 March
  • Multi purpose floor mat – – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Bicycle lock – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Cycling shorts with seat – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Bike frame bag – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Bike cleaning set – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Bike seat cover – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Mountain bike – expected mid May, after being advertised 15 April
  • Metal jerry can – expected mid May, after being advertised 18 April
