Aldi are placing restrictions on the number of toys shoppers can buy from their special Christmas range as toy shops are preparing to close down for six weeks.

The German retail giant will release their annual range of festive toys on Thursday after Ireland enters Level 5 from midnight on Wednesday.

Due to the new restrictions, the supermarket has decided to limit purchases to one of toy per visit.

Customers will only be able to purchase one unit of products from Aldi’s wooden toy range.

In an effort to avoid hassle in stores, a dedicated marshal has also been assigned to each Aldi shop.

They will also be introducing a ticketing system and ensure any customer queues are orderly and social distancing strictly observed.

Speaking about the decision 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.”
