AN ALDI staffer has celebrated her 20 year work anniversary after two decades at the UK’s fourth-largest supermarket.

Sarah Hollis, a Store Assistant at Aldi’s King Street store in Leigh, first joined the supermarket in 2004 and has gone on to become an integral part of the supermarket’s store team.

Sarah is said to have gone above and beyond in her role over the years, including by supporting elderly shoppers during the pandemic by dropping off shopping to those unable to come into the store themselves.

During her time at Aldi, Sarah has also helped out with numerous fundraisers to support Aldi's charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust, raising vital funds for young people with cancer.

Speaking of her time at Aldi, Sarah said: “It may be a cliché but my colleagues at Aldi have really become like my family to me over the years.

"I am very lucky to enjoy my job so much and, by working together with the whole team we always ensure every customer has a great experience when shopping with us.”

As for a 'Specialbuy' that gets her running to the middle aisle, Sarah said: “It has to be an air fryer! They’re all the rage and I can’t wait to get my hands on one, but they don’t stay in the middle aisle for long!”

Ruth Doyle, Regional Managing Director at Aldi UK, said: “With around 45,000 colleagues in the UK, it’s fair to say that people are our biggest and most brilliant asset at Aldi.

“Sarah is no exception, and her commitment to Aldi’s values is testament to why we are loved by so many. We look forward to celebrating even more of her achievements in the coming years.

“As well as offering every colleague the job satisfaction they deserve, we invest in a whole range of fantastic training courses year after year, making sure all our colleagues love being a part of Team Aldi.”
