Aldi grows curbside pickup offering
Aldi’s curbside grocery pickup is expanding. The service, which the Batavia, Ill.-based retailer had been piloting in select markets, will be hitting more than 600 Aldi locations nationwide 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 of Aldi U.S. "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."
The service is offered via the retailer’s U.S. website, and users are able to select from the full selection of Aldi’s exclusive product and Aldi Finds. Once done filling their virtual basket, shoppers can pay and choose a time for pickup. At the store, there are designated parking spots for them, where employees will load the groceries into the car.
The curbside offering joins Aldi’s omnichannel efforts, which also include grocery delivery. Since the delivery service launched in 2017, it has expanded to serve customers across more than 10,000 zip codes.
