Aldi Launches New Virtual Convenience Store with Instacart

To streamline its grocery delivery service, supermarket chain ALDI launched its new ALDI Express, a virtual convenience store powered by Instacart.

With the rollout of the new ALDI Express virtual convenience store, customers have access to nearly 2,000 of the most-shopped items, delivered in as fast as 30 minutes, with Instacart’s service.

“We know our customers live hectic lives, and sometimes that means they don’t have time to make it to the grocery store – even for a quick trip. Through ALDI Express, we’re making shopping more convenient so you can satisfy a craving or get a missing ingredient in minutes,” said Scott Patton, VP of National Buying at ALDI.

“Together with Instacart, we’ll continue to find ways to innovate and make the online grocery experience even more effortless and accessible”, added Patton.

ALDI Express is now available to customers at more than 2,100 supermarkets nationwide, Instacart said in a press release.

“We’re proud to deepen our partnership with ALDI through the introduction of ALDI Express. With this launch, we’re making it easier for customers nationwide to get their favorite staples delivered faster than ever before,” said Ryan Hamburger, Vice President of Retail at Instacart.

“We know how important it is to get what you need when you want it – whether it’s a last-minute delivery for a missing dinner ingredient, milk for the baby or simply wanting a late-night snack,” Hamburger noted.

ALDI began offering delivery services via Instacart in 2017 and now delivers from more than 2,200 stores and powers grocery pickup for more than 1,500 stores nationwide.

The companies expanded their partnership in 2018 to include alcoholic beverage delivery, and ALDI was one of the first retailers to accept EBT SNAP online through Instacart in November 2020.

Instacart, a leading grocery technology company, partners with more than 1,200 national, regional, and local retail banners to facilitate online shopping, delivery, and pickup services from more than 80,000 stores across North America.
