Batavia, Ill., 2017-Aug-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — ALDI, one of America’s favorite grocery retailers,* announced a partnership today (August 14, 2017) with Instacart, the technology-driven, nationwide on-demand grocery delivery service. The pilot program from ALDI, already a leader in convenient shopping, will give people even more access to high-quality groceries at the low prices ALDI is known for.
The new partnership allows customers to conveniently complete their grocery shopping by ordering award-winning ALDI products for delivery in as little as one hour. Starting later this month, ALDI will launch the service in Atlanta, Dallas and Los Angeles, with potential for future expansion.
