Aldi’s special buys have become a cult favourite, as dedicated bargain hunters flock to their nearest supermarket each Wednesday to snap up the latest offerings before they’re all gone.
The hugely popular weekly offers have previously included everything from skiing gear to pancake pans, fridges to gazebos, and even surfboards and stand-up paddle boards, but the cut-price retailer’s latest offerings are tailored to a more specific demographic – older Australians.
From Wednesday, March 4 Aldi will be selling a range of ‘Home Care’ products aimed at ageing consumers, including an assisted living toilet suite, which is being sold with free home installation for just $399 and has a raised seat height of 35mm.
Using a taller toilet can make a difference as you age, as it makes it easier to return to a standing position from seated. Dr Andrew Rochford previously told Starts at 60: “An easy height toilet reduces the strain on your knees, your hips and your lower back, which reduces the risk of pain later in life.”
Aldi will also be selling a limited number of motorised armchairs for $299, which recline and lift up to help people return to standing more easily, as well as a folding toilet frame and an adjustable shower stool which will set you back $59.99 and $39.99 respectively.
Also among the special offers are absorbent bed pads, memory foam back support cushions and even a foldable wheelchair, as well as adjustable walking sticks in a range of designs, a rollable walker and an assortment of denture cleaning tablets.
While there is also a bundle of ‘daily living aids’ on offer for $9.99, which includes a key turner, multi jar opener and plastic shoe horn, as well as a handy reacher grabbing device for just $9.99.
For those looking to stay mobile however, there is also a mini bike trainer ($39.99) which is designed to help strengthen leg and arm muscles, as well as a TENS machine which is a small massage device that can help with pain relief, muscle stimulation and relaxation (also $39.99).
The Special Buys will be available at various Aldi stores across the country from Wednesday, March 4, while stocks last. To see the full list of Special Buys, click here.
