Aldi's Online Wine Delivery Service Has Seen 'Unprecedented Demand' With People In Lockdown
Aldi has made lockdown that little bit easier with its wine delivery service - so much so that its actually experiencing delays in getting orders sent out to people.
The budget supermarket has long been known for its cheap versions of spirit brands (how they get away with some of them I'll never know) but also for its great selection of wines - many of which have won awards (I'm looking at you Toro Loco [insert heart eyes emoji]).
And although the retailer doesn't offer online shopping for food, unlike many of its rivals, it does do a drinks delivery service - unsurprisingly, this seems to have been a bit of a hit with people who are staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
With many people furloughed or working from home, it seems to be a bit inevitable that we'd end up drinking a bit more (yes, I know it's not big or clever).
It seems as though many others have had the same idea too. Although it has offered its online wine shop since 2016, the store's website says that its seen 'unprecedented demand' for the service since lockdown began.
The website reads: "Things are rapidly changing within the UK at the moment and we are having to adapt to support our customers and staff.

"At times like these we strive to provide the best standards to ensure our customers can order with confidence and receive a smooth and hassle-free delivery experience.
"Due to the current exceptional demand, we have had to make some changes to our usual delivery services. We have extended our delivery time frame for all deliveries to 3-10 working days."
The brand has also introduced contact free deliveries as well as introduced social distancing measures with all of its online deliveries.
It says: "We have introduced contact-free deliveries for both our wine and specialbuy products where possible. Our delivery drivers can deliver your parcel safely to your door. This change reduces hand-to-hand contact."
To qualify for delivery, you'll need to make sure you order a case of at least six bottles of wines or spirits - I'm sure that won't be too difficult to reach.
The maximum amount you can order is 12 bottles - with a six bottle maximum on each line - meaning if you have developed a love for one certain line, you might have to branch out a bit.
