ALDI PARTNERS WITH DOORDASH TO DELIVER GROCERIES IN 38 US STATES
Value grocery retailer Aldi has tied up a deal in the US with local commerce platform DoorDash so its customers can get deliveries direct to their front doors. The on-demand service will apply to “nearly all” store locations across 38 states, said the grocer.
“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 for all their needs,” said Scott Patton, vice president of national buying at the supermarket chain.
Customers can shop for a variety of products from fresh produce, meat, seafood, dairy, and bread to household essentials, and even Aldi’s sought-after ‘finds’ which are limited-time products or special deals that the retailer changes every week. Orders must be placed from local stores via the DoorDash marketplace app or website.
“Since we launched into grocery in 2020, Aldi has been one of our consumers’ most highly requested grocers,” said Fuad Hannon, vice president of new verticals at tech group DoorDash. “Our partnership provides access to affordable staples and cult favourites with speed and reliability. Consumers can consolidate their shopping needs from fresh foods to household essentials in a one-stop shop.”
Participating stores will be available through the DashPass membership programme. It offers members zero delivery fees from thousands of restaurants, grocery, and convenience stores nationwide so long as eligible orders are $35 or more.
Aldi is the fastest growing grocery retailer in the US and has been ranked number one for price for six years running according to the 2023 Dunnhumby Retailer Preference Index Report.
