About ALDI

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. Our success shows we are as much a philosophy as we are a grocery store. Every aspect of our operations has been rethought 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 nearly 1,500 locations in 32 states. By focusing on the integrity of our business plan and the satisfaction of our customers, employees and partners, we’ve become the nation’s low-price grocery leader.
