Says Aldi: ‘As of Wednesday, 18 March, we will be changing all stores trading hours to 9:30am - 7pm. Our employees, business partners and transport operators have been working incredibly hard to deliver more products than ever into stores each day.
'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, unless other state and local trading restrictions apply.
‘We want to let you know that there is more than enough food to go around; we just need your patience and support. We will 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.
‘Please remember to respect our employees and each other to support this level of unprecedented demand.'
