Grocery delivery from Aldi will be available in 35 states by Thanksgiving through a new national partnership with Instacart.
Aldi elected to offer the service for most of its locations after successful test runs in several markets, according to a news release. The national rollout will cover 70% of Aldi stores in the U.S., including 75 major markets like New York City, Miami, San Diego, Minneapolis and Raleigh.
“The response to the Aldi pilot programs in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago have been overwhelmingly positive,” Instacart founder and CEO Apoorva Mehta said in the release. “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. 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.”
Fresh groceries, including organic produce, will be among the items available for delivery. Aldi announced this summer that it will be expanding its assortment of fresh, organic and convenient options by 40%.
