As the nation’s low-price grocery leader, our store model is built on creating efficiencies at every level – from store construction to distribution to the specific products we stock. The success of ALDI is that we’re as much a philosophy as we are a grocery store. Every aspect of our operations has been re-thought and reinvented to maximize the quality of our products and savings for our customers.
We began our U.S. operations in 1976 with our first store in southeastern Iowa. Since then, we’ve grown into a multi-billion-dollar retail business with more than 1,300 locations in 32 states. By focusing on the integrity of our business plan, the satisfaction of our customers, employees and partners, we’ve become the nation’s low-price grocery leader.
