The five things we're gunning for now that Aldi's 'Specialbuys' are back

Our favourite middle aisle back

With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, non-essential retail reopened today.

With it, Aldi's middle aisle is no longer sealed off, meaning we can once again bask in the magic that is Specialbuys.

On Thursday the 27th, their new range of summer garden essentials will be available in stores nationwide. Here are the five bits we're dying to get our hands on for what will hopefully be a much brighter summer.
