Aldi SpecialBuys including toasters and kettles delayed over shipping disruption – see full list

ALDI has revealed a full list of over 70 SpecialBuy items that have been delayed over shipping disruption.

The discount supermarket listed sell-out products from air fryers, kettles and toasters that might not be available on the dates they're supposed to be.

Aldi SpecialBuys are limited edition products released in small quantities that are available at low prices.

The limited edition items arrive in stores on Thursdays and Sundays, but shoppers have to act quick to bag the deals.

Items in high demand among shoppers – including Aldi's sell-out egg chair – have been known to sell out in minutes.

But shoppers might be waiting even longer for the bargains due to a global shipping crisis that has hit Aldi's delivery schedule.

Aldi listed around 78 products on its website that could be delayed this month – which means you may not be able to pre-order or buy them in stores or online when Aldi originally advertised them.

Some products could be delayed by as much as 18 days, and many don't even have a date for when they're next available.

The full list of delayed Aldi products and when they're expected to be in stores are:

Aldi said on its website that these dates could be "subject to change" depending on which store you're heading to and what region you live in.

It said: "We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

"We're doing all we can to provide clarity on expected availability dates, but these are subject to change."

Customers have taken to social media to complain of the shortages.

One customer looking to buy pet stairs from Aldi tweeted: "is this being stocked in store? Had a look today but couldn't find 1."

Another said she couldn't find the item she was looking for too, while another shopper went to three shops only to leave empty handed searching for a garden storage unit.

Aldi responded to customers on social media complaining of SpecialBuy shortages that the delays were due to the impact of Covid on the shipping industry.

Aldi was contacted for comment.

The global shipping crisis has also hit other companies – raising concerns that parents might not receive their child's school uniform order in time for the new term.

Suppliers are blaming the driver shortage and Covid-related shipping problems despite some parents ordering the gear for their kids a year ago.

Aldi not the only supermarket rocked by supply issues recently.

Supermarket bosses from shops including Iceland and the Co-op said shortages could hit Christmas food supplies.

Richard Walker, Iceland's chief executive, has said that a lack of lorry drivers is threatening deliveries.

Speaking on the BBC's Today programme Mr Walker said: "The reason for sounding the alarm now is that we've already had one Christmas cancelled at the last minute. I'd hate this one to be problematic as well."

While Steve Murrells, Co-op Group chief, claimed current shortages are at a “worse level” than he has ever seen.

Gaps on supermarket shelves have been spotted across the country due to a combination of factors, including lorry driver shortages and Covid.
