Powered by Instacart, Aldi will offer nearly 2,000 of its most-shopped items for delivery in as fast as 30 minutes. The Aldi Express service is now available from more than 2,100 Aldi supermarket locations across the U.S.

“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,” said Scott Patton, VP of National Buying at Aldi in a statement. “Through Aldi Express we’re making shopping more convenient, so you can satisfy a craving or get a missing ingredient in minutes.”

Aldi first began offering delivery services via Instacart in 2017, and the service now delivers from more than 2,200 Aldi stores, as well as powering pickup from 1,500+ Aldi stores nationwide. The companies expanded their partnership in 2018 to include alcohol delivery, and Aldi began accepting EBT SNAP online via Instacart in November 2020.

“With this launch, we’re making it easier for customers nationwide to get their favorite Aldi staples delivered faster than ever before,” said Ryan Hamburger, VP of Retail at Instacart in a statement. “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.

In February 2023 Aldi also began offering on-demand delivery services via Instacart competitor DoorDash.
