Aldi is launching click-and-collect services in Crawley for the first time after extending its trial to its Betts Way store.
From yesterday (24th Nov), customers will be able to order from a full range of groceries online from groceries.aldi.co.uk then collect them from store in pre-booked one-hour collection slots.
On arrival at dedicated click-and-collect points in the store car park, customers will be able to have their shopping brought to their cars by Aldi colleagues contact-free, in line with social distancing rules.
Aldi is set to extend its trial of click and collect to over 200 additional stores by Christmas.
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK and Ireland, said:
“Aldi’s quality products and unbeatable prices have never been so in demand.
“Extending this trial is about providing thousands more of our existing customers with another convenient way to shop with us, while also making Aldi accessible for many others who may not have shopped with us before.”
As well as click-and-collect, Aldi is also trialling a rapid delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo and has recently extended the trial to almost 130 stores across the UK.
Customers living near selected stores can order from a range of around 400 Aldi products and have them delivered to their doorstep in as little as 20 minutes.
Furniture Village opens its doors in Crawley’s County Oak Retail Park
Crawley welcomes Furniture Village who will open a brand-new store in County Oak retail park this Boxing Day.
The new location offers a Carpetright concession, providing a one-stop-shop for customers looking to update their homes.
Visitors to the new Furniture Village store will be invited to create their ‘home in one’, by exploring collections for every room of the house, from sofas to beds to dining.
Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, comments:
“With much of the UK under lockdown, I’m delighted we’ve been able to open our new store in Crawley. County Oak is a fantastic shopping destination and the ideal choice for Furniture Village.
“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but I am incredibly proud of the Furniture Village team which continues to offer industry-leading quality, choice and service. As well as Family Retailer of the Year, we’ve also been awarded National Bed Retailer of the Year so I’m particularly looking forward to welcoming customers to our new bed department.”
The store will see a team of 11 expert sales consultants offering valuable insights and advice to customers, all made possible thanks to enhanced Covid-19 safety measures.
These include temperature checks, PPE for all staff and hand sanitisation stations, along with an appointment booking system which can be accessed via the website.
Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, adds:
“Customer safety is still, and will continue to be, a priority for us. The feedback from all of our existing stores continues to be overwhelmingly positive, with the appointment booking system providing reassurance and exceptional service for customers.”
The store will open at 9am on Saturday 26th December 2020. Opening offers include Sale discounts of up to 50% plus an additional £50 off every £500 spent.
