When does Aldi restock?

Most Aldi grocery stores restock their shelves every day, but the best specialty items are restocked on Wednesday mornings.

It’s also the same day when rare and time limited products like the Aldi Find products and the fresh meat specials are restocked. 

You’ll be able to buy briskets or even boneless pork chops at surprisingly low costs there. 

Now that we’ve answered the question, “when does Aldi restock their shelves?”, let’s take an in-depth look at the best days to shop there

What is the best day to shop at Aldi?

Wednesday is the best day to shop at Aldi stores if you want to witness huge price cuts and fresh produce to choose from. That’s because lots of shoppers are sure to troop in on that day, the chances of the store shelves running out of stock early are high.

So store employees are always on standby to restock them immediately. But this routine may differ in various Aldi outlets. It’s best to contact Aldi customer service and inquire about what days their delivery trucks arrive. 

But generally, the best days to go grocery shopping are weekdays, especially Monday, and around 8 am. That’s because most people would be off to work, so grocery stores become less crowded.

What time does Aldi stock shelves on other days?

On other shopping days, Aldi stores restock their shelves in the morning, right after they open. So if you want the freshest produce, you’ll want to rush there on time. But if you miss the early morning hours, you can always go back at 3 pm.

Aldi stores restock their shelves again at 3 pm when the staff rotate their shifts.

What are the worst days to shop at Aldi?

The worst day to shop at Aldi is Saturday because it’s a free day for most people. So you should expect a mob of shoppers at not just Aldi, but other grocery stores as well.

Here’s a breakdown of what your schedule should look like if you plan to shop at Aldi any time soon:

  • Mondays & Tuesdays: go grocery shopping from 8 am. The store will be less crowded.
  • Wednesdays & Thursdays: the store will have special offers and discounts. If you plan to save a ton of cash on grocery shopping, then these are the best days to go to Aldi stores.
  • Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays: Work loads on these days are expected to reduce. So most people prefer to shop then. Avoid these days, except you have an emergency errand to run.!
