Aldi is expanding its online fulfillment operations in a collaboration with a well-known third-party delivery provider.

The fast-growing discount grocer is now offering on-demand delivery via DoorDash at nearly all of its store locations across 38 states. Customers can place grocery orders on-demand from local Aldi stores via the DoorDash marketplace app or website. Prices, including discount prices, will be the same via DoorDash as they would be if a customer directly purchased an item from Aldi.

All participating Aldi stores will also be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers members $0 delivery fees. DashPass members can obtain this benefit on all eligible orders of $35 or more from Aldi.

“By partnering with DoorDash, we can conveniently bring our award-winning, fresh and affordable groceries to even more of our customers’ doors with the click of a button,” said Scott Patton, VP of national buying at Aldi. “Whether shopping for a weekly grocery haul or in need of a few extra ingredients for tonight’s dinner, our customers now have another way to shop Aldi for all their grocery needs.”

"Since launching grocery in 2020, Aldi has been one of our consumers' most highly requested grocers. We’re thrilled to welcome the beloved Aldi brand to DoorDash,” said Fuad Hannon, VP of new verticals at DoorDash. “Our partnership with Aldi provides customers access to the retailer’s affordable staples and cult favorites with the speed and reliability of DoorDash. Additionally, consumers can consolidate all their shopping needs from fresh foods to household essentials on DoorDash as their one-stop shop.”

Aldi has history of online delivery and pickup
Aldi is no stranger to offering online delivery and curbside pickup services. In October 2022, the company began partnering with digital commerce platform Spryker Systems to develop a new online food and grocery shopping experience for the U.S. market, offering grocery delivery or curbside pickup for its U.S. shoppers.

The retailer has also been partnering with grocery technology company Instacart to provide same-day home delivery of online purchases since 2017. 

In addition, Aldi began moving its curbside pickup program out of pilot into widespread rollout in spring 2020 pandemic drove a surge in demand for curbside services. On the Aldi U.S. e-commerce site or mobile app, customers can find the nearest store offering curbside service, fill their shopping cart, and select pickup time and location at checkout. Designated parking spots are clearly marked and an employee will load groceries into their car.

Aldi’s full product assortment is available for curbside pickup. The company has previously said it will expand its curbside grocery pickup offering from 1,200 to 1,500 stores by the end of this year to make shopping quick and easy for customers.
Aldi is one of America's fastest-growing retailers, operating 2,200 stores across 38 states. The grocer has also been number one for price according to the Dunnhumby Retailer Preference Index Report for six years running.
