Aldi Expands Curbside Grocery Pickup Availability to Nearly 600 Stores
BATAVIA, IL - Curbside pickup has taken the grocery industry by storm, with Hy-Vee and Giant Eagle as just two of the retailers we’ve covered. Now Aldi is joining in on this expansion strategy, recently announcing it will grow its Curbside Grocery Pickup service to offer even more options to shoppers. After a successful pilot in select markets, Curbside Grocery Pickup will be available in nearly 600 Aldi stores across the country by the end of July.
"Our Curbside Grocery Pickup pilot was quickly embraced by our customers and demand for this service has continued to increase. We're pleased to be bringing this service to customers across 35 states over the next several weeks," said Jason Hart, CEO. "We are always looking for ways to make the Aldi shopping experience even more convenient and accessible for everyone. Whether shopping in-store, or online for delivery or pickup, we'll continue to be here to safely serve our customers."
According to a press release, consumers can now access the full selection of Aldi exclusive products and exciting Aldi Finds. Shoppers simply fill their online carts with fresh and affordable products and select a pickup time and location at checkout. Designated parking spots are clearly marked when they arrive at their Aldi and an employee will load groceries into their car.
Curbside Grocery Pickup is the latest addition to e-commerce offerings at Aldi. In 2017, Aldi successfully launched a grocery delivery pilot, which has continuously expanded and now includes the availability of alcohol and many Aldi Finds online. Aldi customers in more than 10,000 ZIP codes nationwide have access to online grocery delivery.
