Grocery shopping in Arizona is getting smarter, faster and easier. On Thursday, Nov. 5, ALDI, the low-price leader, is opening its first Arizona stores in the Chandler and Goodyear areas. Entry into Arizona is part of a national expansion plan that puts ALDI on track to become the third-largest U.S. grocery retailer by store count by the end of 2022.

With ALDI making its debut in Arizona, Phoenix-area residents can now join the millions of shoppers across the country who already love shopping ALDI for premium food at great prices. The new Chandler store at 2844 S. Alma School Road and the new Goodyear store at 845 N. Estrella Parkway will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and both offer the convenience of grocery delivery and curbside pickup.

“We’re thrilled to continue expanding in the Southwest, and we take great pride in reaching this milestone as we open our first Arizona stores,” said Tom Cindel, Group Director of Operations and Logistics for ALDI. “Our aggressive growth plans have always been centered around providing as many people as possible the high-quality, affordable groceries they can count on every day. We know easy access to fresh food and household essentials is invaluable, especially now. At ALDI, we’re dedicated to doing our part by serving our local communities, and we can’t wait to introduce shoppers in the Chandler and Goodyear areas to the ALDI difference.”
