Aldi reveals new shopping hours

Aldi has announced new trading times - including two days of closures - as staff reel from the coronavirus pandemic.

From Monday, April 6, the supermarket chain will temporarily change its trading hours to 8.30am to 7pm, unless other state and local trading restrictions apply.

Aldi stores across the country will also be closed on Good Friday on April 10 and Easter Sunday on April 12 "to give our team members a well-deserved break".


"Our employees, Australian business partners and transport operators have been working incredibly hard to deliver more products than ever into stores each day," the company said in a statement.

"To allow them time to stock shelves and perform a thorough clean of the store for the next day, we have decided to temporarily change our trading hours.

"We want to let you know that there is more than enough food to go around; we just need your patience and support."

The company said it would "continue to re-evaluate these hours on a weekly basis and communicate the decision to either uphold these hours or return to normal trading hours".

"We appreciate that these new times may be an inconvenience and we thank you in advance for your understanding," the statement concluded.
