Aldi to launch online wine sales

28 September, 2015

Aldi is to start selling wine online in the new year.

Wines will be sold by the case from early next year, spearheading the launch of a wider e-commerce operation that aims to draw thousands more UK customers to the German-owned retail chain.

UK wine buying director Mike James said: “We are very proud of our wine range, and while we always strive to deliver every day great value to our customers, we will never compromise on quality to achieve a price point and I believe it’s this that continues to set us apart.

“The launch of our e-commerce operation forms part of our long-term growth and investment strategy. Selected wines will be sold online by the case from early 2016, followed by non-food special buys in the spring. 

“Customers nationwide will be offered both home delivery and access to a convenient collections and returns service.”
