Shoppers at Aldi will be pleased to hear they will be able to make some savings right now.

The supermarket has announced it will reduce the price of perishable fresh food, including meat, bread, fruit and vegetables, before stores close for the day - helping to save it's customers money.

The time the bargain hour starts will vary, according to what branch it is.

According to The Sun, there won't be any specific times for when this takes place, so shoppers keep an eye out and make a note of when reductions typically happen in their local store.

This could allow shoppers to plan their supermarket trips for when the 75% offers are due to be up for grabs.

Aldi is introducing a new bargain hour where customers get food for 75% less

Aldi will select items based on those which are "on their last day of life". These will be marked with red stickers.

The new promotion won't replace Aldi's current policy, which sees it cut prices of products nearing their best-before date by 30%. This price chop is usually done after stores close though, meaning shoppers previously had to visit shops as soon as they opened to get the bargains.

Items will be reduced by 75% after they've been reduced to 30%, usually on the day before their use-by day - providing even more of a steal.

A use-by date advises when a product may no longer be safe to eat, meanwhile a best before date suggests when food might start to reduce in it's quality.

The stickers will look exactly the same as previously, but instead have "75% off" in bold text.

The new bargain hour is being introduced to stores next week after trials in the brand's Swindon and Cardiff branches.

All discounted items will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Aldi bosses say the move will help it work towards a target of halving food waste by 2030.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi, said: “Aldi is already known for its low prices, but these discounts will help some shoppers to cut their grocery bills even further – all while helping us reduce food waste.

“Customers should look out for the red stickers when shopping at Aldi, but shoppers need to be quick as I’m sure the products will prove popular.”
