Goodyear and Chandler, Aldi

After opening its first Arizona stores in Goodyear and Chandler, Aldi opened its first Peoria store.

After opening its first two Arizona stores last month, Aldi launched a third grocery store in Peoria last week.

The new Aldi at 24665 N. Lake Pleasant Parkway is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

“Since opening our first two Phoenix-area Aldi stores in Chandler and Goodyear last month, we have been thrilled with shopper’s positive response and are excited to bring Peoria residents the best groceries at the lowest possible prices,” said Tom Cindel, director of Operations and Logistics for Aldi. “We are focused on expanding and opening new stores across the country because we want to do our part. We know now, more than ever, easy access to fresh food and household essentials is invaluable.”

The European grocery chain prides itself on “simplicity and efficiency.”

According to a press release, “Aldi has seamlessly integrated several new safety features in all its stores across the country. The health and safety of customers and employees are the company’s top priorities and ALDI optimizes its stores to provide the cleanest and safest shopping environment possible.”

 Aldi offers options of shopping in the store or shop online using curbside grocery pickup or delivery.

Shopping at Aldi is a little different, as quarters are needed for shopping carts-a deposit to insure the carts are returned.

 And more than 90% of products are from Aldi-exclusive brands, including the Simply Nature, liveGfree, Specially Selected and Earth Grown lines.
