Grocer adding Instacart service at 500 stores

Supermarket chain Aldi is doubling down on curbside pickup.

The discount grocer is expanding its curbside pickup to approximately 500 more stores by the end of 2021 after adding the service to about 600 stores in 35 states last summer, Aldi shared exclusively with USA TODAY Wednesday.

Curbside pickup has grown dramatically in popularity and availability during the coronavirus pandemic. Retailers including Sam’s Club, Best Buy, Macy’s, Kohl’s and Old Navy have added it as shoppers try to make fewer trips to stores.

Aldi also is opening about 100 new stores this year at a time when other retailers such as Macy’s, Sears and Godiva are closing locations.
