Aldi Will Shut On Boxing Day To Give Staff A Rest
Aldi is set to shut once again on Boxing Day this year, giving workers a hard earned rest over the holiday season.
The supermarket giant has followed this pattern over the past ten years, shutting on Christmas Day like other stores, but also allowing workers a rest on Boxing Day too.
It is however perhaps a little inconvenient to shoppers. Although let's be honest, who actually runs out of food by Boxing Day?
With most of us buying turkeys that are far too large for the day itself and stockpiling snacks in the build up as though we're hunkering down for a hurricane, it feels unlikely we will need yet more food come 26th December. So as long as you're well prepared, no-one need head out anyway.
But if you like to escape the in-laws or simply just hosting duties for thirty minutes, you can head to other stores.
Last year, Asda, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco all opened their doors on 26th December, whilst Lidl and Waitrose were shut.
So if you really do run out of something (let's be honest if anything it'll be wine), there will be another store to welcome you.
But if you're a die-hard Aldi fan, then make sure you stock up on Christmas Eve, where stores will shut at 6pm.
While you're there, don't forget it has some brand new festive food to try out, including spicy pigs in blankets. Not sure if this much loved dinner addition needs messing with, but we're so willing to give them a go.
If you like your pigs in blankets to taste normal, perhaps this non-spicy two-metre long one will be more up your street?
Or maybe you're after a festive tipple - this candy cane gin liqueur sounds delicious.
Be aware though that Aldi will also shut on New Year's Day, so if you need a hangover carb fix, make sure you stock up on New Year's Eve.
Aldi advises people to check their local store's opening hours though as they may vary slightly.
Tyla has approached Aldi for a comment on their decision to close on Boxing Day and is waiting on a response.
