For over 40 years, they have stuck to the same guiding principle: great quality should come with everyday low prices. In 1961, the Albrecht Family founded the world’s first discount grocery store in Germany. 16 years later in 1976, they opened their first ALDI store in Iowa. Today, with their ALDI headquarters in Batavia, Illinois, they have grown to more than 2,000 stores across 36 states with over 25,000 employees.
When it comes to better-for-you shopping and living, they like to think of themselves as an ally for you. They keep a close eye on the ingredients and materials that go into all of their products to ensure they meet the highest standards for their commitment to quality, health and safety. At ALDI, their teams carefully select the best products to meet all of your requests. From healthier choices, gluten-free items, along with other dietary needs and preferences, more than 90% of the products in their stores are under their exclusive brand.
