Aldi launches new home store online and it's good news for Specialbuy fans

By Megan Nisbet

Aldi is hugely popular for its homeware and furniture but those waiting to get their hands on sought-after items often find themselves in huge virtual queues on release dates.

So those that would much rather enjoy a leisurely scroll through their favourite supermarket's home and interior products will be pleased to hear that Aldi has launched a brand new online home store.

The new feature is permanent, meaning the famous "once it's gone, it's gone" reference doesn't apply here.

Aldi announced the news on its social media pages, telling customers: "You heard it here first! We're launching our brand new Online Home Store so that you can now shop our home and interior products at your leisure!"

"Aldi just gets better all the time," commented one shopper, while another added: "Fantastic news."

Fragrances and candles, luxury bedding, home furnishings and Aldi's kitchen range can currently be found online. You can find out more here.

Speaking to WalesOnline, a spokesperson said: "Those looking for interiors and homewares should also check out Aldi's new, permanent online Home Store, which offers everything from top quality bedding to tableware and kitchen essentials.

"Available all year round, the new offering is in addition to Specialbuy favourites, which will continue to launch online and in store on Thursdays and Sundays."

It comes after Aldi announced it was launching gift cards worth up to £500 this week.

The cards, which are contactless and plastic-free, are located next to the greeting cards in Aldi's more than 920 stores just in time for Christmas.

Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, Julie Ashfield, said: "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!" Read more on this here.
