Aldi removes four item limit on nappies, beer, wine and spirits – The Sun

ALDI has lifted its four item limit on beers, wines and spirits, as well as on nappies.

It follows the removal of its four-item limit across the majority of products in store earlier this week.

This had been introduced on March 15.

While just over a week later, Aldi then limited customers to buying two each of nappies, toilet roll and kitchen towel.

Supermarkets across the board have had to ration what shoppers can buy to prevent panic buying.

But now the four-item limit in Aldi only remains on antibacterial wipes, bleach, canned tomatoes, beans, and sausages, hand wash and soap, part baked bread, pasta, shower gel, and toilet tissue, kitchen towel, and tissues.

A stricter two item limit still applies to antibacterial hand gel, baby formula, and UHT milk.

Aldi says product availability in store is "good" but adds that it sill encourages shoppers to only buy what they need.

To help prevent the spread of coronavirus by using card to make payments instead of cash, Aldi's contactless card limit will increase from £30 to £45 per transaction from Monday.

The new contactless limit came into force from April 1 with all retailers expected to follow it.

In addition, Aldi is donating almost half a million Easter Eggs to local charities and food banks that support vulnerable families and children.

Every store will donate up to 50 Easter Eggs each day from April 1 until April 11.

We've asked Aldi if these donations are made at random or if charities and foodbanks need to apply for them and we'll update this story as soon as we get a response.
