SUPERMARKET chain Aldi has launched a delivery service for Scottish shoppers, it has been announced.

The trial service launched in partnership with food courier outfit Deliveroo at eight English branches in May.

It's now grown to almost 130 stores and will now include eight in Scotland.

Bosses promise "rapid delivery" as well as "greater flexibility and access to affordable Aldi groceries".

Customers living nearby branches can choose from 400 items online and have them brought to their door in as little as 20 minutes.

Those branches are in Glasgow, Perth, Dundee, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, St Andrews, Musselburgh and Dunfermline.

Richard Thornton, Aldi UK communications director, said: "The new trial with Deliveroo will provide more customers in Scotland with access to great quality food at Aldi’s unbeatable prices.

"This is an exciting venture for Aldi which provides a new way to serve our customers during these challenging times."
