ALDI Australia has announced that it will be shutting down its online liquor store at 4pm on Thursday, March 24.
The retailer is currently expanding into South Australia and Western Australia, and says its focus on growing its retail outlets across the country is behind its reasons for stepping away from online liquor retailing.
“We are constantly reviewing our business operations and processes to ensure we can continue to deliver exceptional value for our customers every day,” an ALDI Australia spokesperson said.
“This includes eliminating many of the costly extras associated with traditional supermarkets. With extensive expansion plans now well underway, we have made the decision to close our online liquor store. This will enable us to focus on creating the best possible in-store experience for customers, while continuing to deliver high-quality products at permanently low prices.”
The site will continue to trade until 4pm on Thursday, March 24, but ALDI’s in-store liquor range will not be affected by the closure of the online platform.
“The site will be trading as usual until the closing date with some fantastic special offers to stock up your liquor collection,” the spokesperson said.
“Our standard terms and conditions will continue to apply to all purchases, including the 100 per cent satisfaction guarantee, which will be honoured after the closure date. For any holders of store credits, these can be used until closure of the store, with any remaining credit exchangeable for liquor online or an in-store gift voucher. For any inquiries, please call 1300 ALDI.”
