Aldi expands grocery delivery in Midwest
The next phase of Aldi's $5 billion plan to conquer food retail in the U.S. is taking shape in the Midwest.
The retailer announced it is expanding Instacart online grocery ordering and home delivery service to residents across Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana and as far west as Rockford. Shoppers can now find their favorite exclusive ALDI brands online and Instacart will conveniently deliver their groceries in as little as an hour.
"We are committed to saving people time and money, no matter how they shop for groceries," said Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI U.S. "The response to our Instacart pilot in Atlanta, Dallas and Los Angeles was overwhelmingly positive, and with nearly 200 Chicago-area stores, it only makes sense to bring online delivery to this major market."
As one of the fastest-growing retailers in the U.S., Aldi says it will continue to explore bringing its convenience, quality and value to even more communities with Instacart.
"We're thrilled to grow our partnership with ALDI in a key market like the Chicago area as the demand for online grocery shopping and delivery continues to grow, and look forward to bringing the exceptional value ALDI offers to more shoppers," said Sarah Mastrorocco, Vice President of Business Development for San Francisco-based Instacart.
First-time Instacart customers in the new delivery areas can take advantage of $20 off, plus free delivery of their first order of $35 or more with code LOVEALDI through May 31, 2018*.
Aldi operates more than 1,750 U.S. stores in 35 states.
