Curbside pickup coming to another 500 stores
BATAVIA, Ill. — ALDI plans to add about 100 new stores this year, the company said Wednesday, and will support its online shoppers by adding grocery pickup service to an additional 500 stores.
“We’re incredibly proud to continue growing in all aspects of our business, from opening new stores to enhancing our eCommerce offerings, especially in light of the challenges businesses have faced in the last year,” ALDI U.S. chief executive officer Jason Hart said. “Our commitment to our shoppers, new and existing, is the same — we will do everything in our power to offer the lowest possible prices every day — and we look forward to supporting more communities across the country with amazing ALDI products at a value that can’t be matched.”
ALDI is expanding nationwide, with a particular focus on Arizona, California, Florida and the Northeast. The company’s expansion of its Curbside Grocery Pickup service to 500 additional stores by the end of the year will bring its total number of curbside locations to more than 1,200. ALDI will also continue to offer grocery delivery via Instacart in almost all of its stores, the company said.
ALDI also broke ground Wednesday on a new regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Alabama, which will support the company’s expansion throughout the Gulf Coast region. The 564,000-square-foot facility is the company’s sixth distribution center in the southern U.S., and it service up to 100 stores in Alabama, Southern Georgia, Mississippi, the Florida Panhandle and Louisiana.
The Gulf Coast is another focus of expansion for ALDI — the company plans to open as many as 35 new Gulf Coast-area stores by the end of 2022, including the company’s first two stores in Tallahassee, Fla., which are slated to open later this year. And Louisiana will be the 38th state where ALDI operates.
