A new Aldi grocery store opened today in Speedway on Founders Square Drive, expanding the grocer’s footprint across central Indiana.
The new location will be the 12th Aldi in Marion County and part of the company’s national expansion goal to become the third-largest grocer in the country by the end of 2022.
Aldi stores are typically 12,000 square feet, smaller than a typical supermarket, and are known for their low prices. Speedway’s new Aldi will compete with nearby Kroger, Walmart, and La Villita, a Mexican grocery. It will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
As part of its continued mission to offer customers convenience in how and when they shop, ALDI will expand its eCommerce offering throughout 2021. The company will add Curbside Grocery Pickup service to 500 additional stores by the end of the year, bringing the total number of curbside locations to more than 1,200. ALDI will also continue to offer grocery delivery via Instacart in almost all of its stores.
“We’re incredibly proud to continue growing in all aspects of our business, from opening new stores to enhancing our eCommerce offerings, especially in light of the challenges businesses have faced in the last year,” said Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI U.S. “Our commitment to our shoppers, new and existing, is the same — we will do everything in our power to offer the lowest possible prices every day — and we look forward to supporting more communities across the country with amazing ALDI products at a value that can’t be matched.”
As ALDI continues to grow, supporting the safety and well-being of its employees, customers, and community partners remains its top priority. No matter how customers shop — in-store or online — they can be confident in the safety measures and plans the company has introduced to reduce exposure to and spread of COVID-19.
