Aldi has confirmed it will close all of its stores on Boxing Day in line with previous years, to once again thank its colleagues for all their hard work. 

Britain‚Äôs fourth-largest supermarket will close on the 25th and 26th December and reopen as usual on Wednesday 27th, so customers can pick up their New Year essentials.

Opening hours will vary in the build-up to Christmas, with Aldi operating extended hours to ensure customers can stock up ahead of the big day.

Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: ‚ÄúWe recognise that Christmas is an important time for many of our colleagues, and keeping our stores closed on Boxing Day gives them more time to spend with their families.

‚ÄúCustomers will have plenty to look forward to in the run-up to Christmas, with more of Aldi‚Äôs brand-new Christmas ranges arriving in stores over the next few weeks.‚ÄĚ

The supermarket also recently announced it is recruiting 3,000 store roles to bolster its team ahead of the festive period, with roles including Store Assistants, managerial positions and cleaners. 

Starting pay for Store Assistants at Aldi is an industry-leading £11.40 per hour nationally, and £12.85 per hour inside the M25. Aldi also remains the only supermarket in the UK to offer paid breaks.
