Aldi UK has ended its Deliveroo partnership by removing 130 stores from the food delivery platform nationwide.
Instead, the discount retailer revealed it has decided to end the partnership to focus more on its Click & Collect service.
“We have decided to end our trial with Deliveroo to focus on our Click and Collect service, which remains on offer at more than 200 of our stores nationwide,” an Aldi spokesperson told Grocery Gazette.
The partnership first began in May 2020 from a single store in Nottingham before being extended to seven locations across the East Midlands.
The trial had been extended to over 130 stores by the end of 2020.
The news comes in the same week as Aldi opened its first checkout-free store in London.
The Aldi Shop&Go store is located in Greenwich, and opened its doors for public testing on Tuesday, following months of of ongoing testing by Aldi colleagues.
