According to the press release from DoorDash, “Consumers can conveniently shop for all of their groceries including fresh produce, meat, seafood, dairy, bread, household essentials and even the highly sought-after Aldi Finds, all at the low prices they count on from Aldi. Grocery orders can be placed on-demand from local Aldi stores via the DoorDash marketplace app or website.”
"Since launching grocery in 2020, Aldi has been one of our consumers' most highly requested grocers.
