ALDI announces home delivery option through Instacart

Discount grocer ALDI Inc.'s U.S. division said Aug. 14 that it plans to partner with grocery delivery service Instacart to offer home delivery, ALDI said in a press release.

The service, which will debut at ALDI stores in Atlanta, Dallas and Los Angeles later in August, will offer customers same-day delivery for groceries with an option to receive orders "in as little as one hour," the company said.

"There's a clear demand for quality grocery delivery, and ALDI and Instacart are working together to meet it," ALDI Chief Business Officer Nilam Ganenthiran said in the statement.

The announcement comes about two months after e-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc. said it plans to buy Whole Foods Market Inc. Since the two companies announced the deal, grocery industry experts have said it is likely that Amazon will deploy more technology at Whole Foods stores, including new systems to fill and deliver customer orders.

Instacart has a contract to provide a similar service to Whole Foods.

The partnership also comes as ALDI spends about $5 billion to expand its network of stores and remodel existing ones. By 2022, the chain, founded in Germany, plans to have about 2,500 stores in the U.S., up from its current 1,600.

ALDI's partnership with Instacart will allow customers to choose items they want using Instacart's website. When they pay for the items, customers will be able to schedule a delivery time for their order, according to ALDI's statement.

Retailer Target Corp. said Aug. 14 that it plans to acquire delivery technology firm Grand Junction Inc. in a deal that is expected to develop Target's own home delivery options.
