Aldi introduces new social distancing measures in store to protect colleagues and customers

Aldi has introduced a number of new measures to encourage effective social distancing, and to protect colleagues and customers in store.
As well as the roll-out of clear screens at more than 7,000 checkouts, which began yesterday, Aldi has introduced the following measures in store:

·       Aldi is installing two-metre markers on the floors of stores to encourage responsible social distancing at the checkout.

·       It is encouraging customers to use contactless payment such as credit cards, Apple Pay and Android Pay, wherever possible, rather than using cash.

·       It is introducing a range of in-store notices reminding customers of the need for effective social distancing in store.

·       It has reduced opening hours to help colleagues to re-stock products while stores are empty.
