BATAVIA, Ill., Sept. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ALDI is pleased to announce a national partnership with Instacart, bringing online grocery delivery to ALDI stores across the nation. After a successful pilot program, online ordering of ALDI products via Instacart, the North American leader in online groceries, will be available across 35 states in 5,000 new ZIP codes by Thanksgiving. The national rollout covers 75 major markets, including San Diego, New York City, Miami, Raleigh and Minneapolis.
"ALDI is a pioneer and a leader in creating a shopping experience that works with people's busy lives," said Jason Hart, CEO of ALDI U.S. "Our partnership with Instacart and the expansion of our e-commerce options are more ways we are meeting the growing needs of today's shopper, who wants high-quality food at unbeatable prices."
ALDI customers will have access to fresh groceries, including organic produce, antibiotic-free meat and fresh seafood, all available for Instacart delivery in as little as one hour.
"The response to the ALDI pilot programs in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago have been overwhelmingly positive. Bringing delivery to ALDI stores across the U.S. enables Instacart to grow its base of customers and introduce even more people to same-day grocery delivery," said Apoorva Mehta, Founder and CEO of Instacart. "Like ALDI, Instacart is focused on delivering value and making quality food accessible and affordable to everyone. We're excited to work together to further innovate the shopping experience with fast delivery and low prices for ALDI customers."
Shopping at ALDI with Instacart is just as easy as shopping in a physical ALDI store. Customers fill their virtual carts by visiting Instacart.com/aldi or downloading the Instacart app. At checkout, customers can choose a delivery window — anywhere from an hour or up to a week later — that works best with their schedule. Instacart personal shoppers do the rest. To celebrate the nationwide partnership with Instacart, first-time Instacart customers can receive $10 off their first three ALDI orders of $35 or more with the code ALDILOVE.**
ALDI is growing rapidly, investing more than $5.3 billion to remodel and expand its store count to 2,500 by the end of 2022. In August, the retailer announced it would expand its selection of fresh, organic and easy-to-prepare options by 40 percent. As one of the fastest-growing retailers in the U.S., ALDI will continue to explore bringing its convenience, quality and value to even more communities with online delivery and pickup.
