Making history for over 100 years.

Since opening the first store in Germany in 1913, ALDI has welcomed customers with a commitment to providing more value, selections and service. That commitment made its way to the U.S. in 1976 when we opened our first location in Iowa. Now, internationally, we operate thousands of stores in over 10 countries. ALDI has opened over 2,300 stores in the U.S. and continues its path as one of America’s fastest growing grocery retailers. With more stores come more happy customers — and more opportunities for you to build an incredible career.
