Aldi launches DIY range in its 'Specialbuys' section as consumers look to discount retailers

Published: 19 February 2018 - Kiran Grewal

Aldi has released an extended range of DIY tools and products in its Specialbuys section yesterday, as consumers flock to discount retailers for homeware goods.

The range features a wide selection of "top-quality and excellent value tools and accessories" to help customers master the art of DIY. Aldi’s Drill N Fix It! range is currently in store but as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Aldi has a choice of protective footwear, including men’s leather Safety Boots (£19.99). This work boot with steel cap heal is perfect for use on site or for larger DIY projects. For smaller projets, try Aldi’s oil repellant Safety Shoes (£18.99), complete with a steel toe cap.  Remember to keep it safe and opt for a high visbility fastening rope for heavy duty tasks with Aldi’s Hi Vis and Multi Purpose Ropes (£3.99).

Some products from the range include Aldi’s 20V LI-ION Cordless Hammer Drill (£49.99), which includes two 1.5Ah capacity batteries for long-lasting use. Aldi’s Drill and Bit Set (£4.99) for drilling into a range of different surfaces including masonry, wood and metal. and a set of Premium Screws (£9.99) which are equipped with an extreme grip thread to reduce torque.


Aldi has also included an essentials range, for customers who are new to home improvement: Aldi’s Double Assortment Box (£16.99), Ratchet & Socket Sets (£9.99), Spanner Set (£5.99), and a 12 Piece Spring Clamp Set (£4.99).  For on-the-go jobs, Aldi has released a practical Tool Backpack (£24.99), complete with carry handles and wheels.

Aldi is the common brand of two leading global discount supermarket chains with over 10,000 stores in 18 countries, and an estimated combined turnover of more than €50 billion.
