Aldi introduces major change to all UK stores as it offers gift cards for the first time

By Phoebe Barton

Aldi has launched its first ever gift card in the UK, allowing customers to buy them for their friends and family just in time for Christmas.

This will be great news for many Aldi shoppers who frequently buy food, drink and SpecialBuys purchases from the supermarket.

Customers can choose the value of their gift card up to £500, the perfect present if you’re not sure what to buy a loved one this Christmas.

The plastic gift cards can be found in the card section of all stores and are activated by the purchaser at the till. The recipient of the gift card can use it at the checkout at any Aldi contact-free.

Julie Ashfield, Aldi’s MD of buying, told The Grocer : “The Aldi gift card is the perfect present for any Aldi fan, whether it goes towards their food shopping or that must-have item from our SpecialBuys aisle. We hope customers enjoy giving the gift of Aldi to their friends and family.”

Aldi was named the cheapest supermarket in the UK earlier this week and was also named the nation’s lowest-priced supermarket in The Grocer 33.
