Aldi to sell reusable face masks from Thursday onwards
It will also introduce a traffic light system at the entrance to their stores.
Aldi Ireland has announced that it will be selling face masks in all 142 of its stores nationwide from Thursday (4 June) onwards.
The masks are not medical grade but are reusable and can be put in the washing machine.
Packs cost €5.99 and two masks come in each pack.
The retailer also announced that it will be introducing a new traffic light system at the entrances to its stores following a successful trial in its Naas store.
The system is being rolled out across its stores from 15 June and should be in place in all stores by the end of June.
The system works by continuously counting the number of customers entering and exiting the store, showing a green light for capacity and a red light when capacity has been reached.
When the light is red, the entrance doors automatically close and will not open until the next customer leaves the store.
