Aldi to limit number of toys customers can purchase

by Rachel Darcy

Aldi’s new Christmas Specialbuys toy range will go on sale this Thursday, October 22, with the retailer announcing they will be limiting the amount each customer can purchase.

To ensure everyone gets a chance to get hold of the offers, Aldi will be limiting customer purchases to one of certain toys on sale.

Customers will only be able to purchase one unit of Aldi’s Large Wooden Toy Kitchen – Pink, Large Wooden Toy Kitchen – Grey, Premium Toy Kitchen, Toy Vanity Table, Stool and Access, Wooden Dolls House, Wooden Fire Station/Airport, Wooden Cleaning Set, Wooden Ironing Set/Airer Set and Wooden Play Shop/Theatre.

A dedicated store marshal has also been assigned to each Aldi store to manage a ticketing system and ensure any customer queues are orderly, with social distancing strictly observed.

Aldi Group Managing Director, Niall O’Connor said: “Our Christmas Specialbuys toy range as always offers exceptional value and prices. The provision of a ticketing system will ensure as many shoppers as possible will get to avail of the offers and do so while shopping in a safe environment.” 

“The safety of our staff and customers while in our stores is our number one priority and we continue to have in place several safety measures across our 144 stores.”

Safey measures at Aldi stores include:

  • A traffic light system is in place which continuously counts the number of customers entering and exiting the store, showing a green light for capacity and a red light when capacity has been reached. This system, with your cooperation, enables us to ensure appropriate social distancing in the stores.
  • Clear markers show the space customers must maintain if required to queue for a short time before entering the stores.
  • Clear protective screens at every till.
  • Clear markings to show the 2m distance you should maintain when paying for your shopping at the checkouts.
  • A self-service cleaning station upon entry to stores for cleaning both trolleys and baskets.
  • Hand sanitiser for customers at the entrance to stores.
  • The transaction limit on contactless payments has been increased to up to €50.
