Like many stores, Aldi made some additional changes to their shopping policies to keep consumers safe.

New Store Occupancy Limits

Effective Thursday, April 9th, we will limit the number of people inside our stores to approximately five customers per 1,000 square feet.

  • To be certain these limits are followed, we will have team members stationed outside each store cleaning carts and keeping track of customers as they enter and exit.
  • We will admit shoppers into the store one at a time. We may enforce a brief delay between customers to allow for adequate space between customers as they enter.
  • We will be allowing any medical professionals, with identification, immediate access to the front of any lines that may form outside our stores.
  • If a line forms outside our store, we kindly ask our customers to stand at least six feet away from the person in front of them and maintain that safe distance throughout their entire shopping experience. Our team members will help remind shoppers of this as well.
  • We kindly ask customers to limit their shopping to one person per family. We recognize that may not be possible in certain circumstances and will make exceptions for any customer who needs to shop with children, or assist a vulnerable shopper.

Temporary One-Way Aisles

Inside the store, we will be rolling out one-way aisles to better manage the flow of traffic and help our customers maintain social distance from each other and our team members. In-store signage will direct shoppers through the store.

Discontinuing cart-to-cart transfers

Effective immediately, we’re suspending the practice of placing customers’ scanned items into a different shopping cart at checkout. Our customers will now keep the cart they started with throughout their entire visit to ensure the best possible hygiene and safety for all.

Special Shopping Hours

Vulnerable shoppers can shop on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30 to 9:30.
