Aldi is extending its opening hours coming up to Christmas to give shoppers more time to pick up last-minute essentials ahead of the big day.
Opening from 8am during the Christmas weekend and for late shoppers, opening hours will also be extended until 11pm. Stores will also be open until 7pm on Christmas Eve, but customers are advised to check details of their local stores online to avoid disappointment.
Aldi will close its stores as usual on Christmas Day and will once again remain closed on St Stephen’s Day to allow colleagues get a much-needed break.
The majority of stores will be open from 9am until 9pm between Christmas and New Year, and until 7pm on New Year’s Eve so shoppers can squeeze in some last-minute shopping.
The extended Christmas opening hours for Aldi are as follows:
22 December: 8am to 11pm
23 December: 8am to 11pm
24 December: 8am to 7pm
25 December: CLOSED
26 December: CLOSED
27 December: 9am-9pm
28 December: 9am-9pm
29 December: 9am-9pm
30 December: 9am-9pm
31 December: 9am-7pm
01 January: CLOSED
Customers can also secure their Christmas collection slot online starting from 17 November, and Aldi’s click and collect service will be available at 20 stores from 20 to 23 December.
Colin Breslin, managing director of buying and services, Aldi, said: “By extending our opening hours in the run up to Christmas, we can ensure that our customers have time to stock up on everything they need for an amazing Christmas. It is really important that shoppers can avail of our award-winning range of food and drink offerings at market leading prices, as well as select from our wide range of Specialbuys that will make the perfect stocking filler this Christmas.

To allow everyone to have a well-earned break, we will be maintaining our tradition of keeping our stores closed on St Stephen’s Day.”
