The British arm of the German discount supermarket chain Aldi announced that its sales in December increased by 0.4% compared to the previous year, when the expenses were higher than usual due to the lockdown and the temporary closing of bars and restaurants.
Aldi UK and Ireland announced that its sales increased by 8.1% from 2019, before the pandemic broke out.
The group is the fifth largest in Britain, holding 7.7% of the supermarket market.
It highlighted the performance of the premium series of “Specially Selected”, which recorded the highest sales in its history, and the strong demand for beers, wines and beverages.
“Looking ahead, the top priority for most families this year will be managing their household budgets in view of rising living costs,” said CEO Giles Hurley.
