ALDI is opening its 1st four stores in Arizona later this year

ALDI, the value leader among U.S. grocery stores for 10 years* running, opens its 2,000th store and kicks off a new wave of expansion, announcing plans to enter Arizona by year-end. The new Phoenix-area stores include locations in Chandler, Gilbert, Goodyear and Peoria.

ALDI has been planning further expansion in western states since 2016. After opening its first California stores four years ago, more than 75 locations soon followed. As one of America’s fastest-growing retailers, ALDI is on pace to become the third-largest grocer by store count by the end of 2022, and the Arizona market is a key component of this expansion effort. 

“We are incredibly excited to open our first stores in Arizona and introduce millions of new shoppers to the most affordable grocery shopping experience,” said Tom Cindel, Moreno Valley Group Director of Operations and Logistics for ALDI. “Beyond our commitment to always provide the freshest groceries at the lowest prices, we are proud to create job opportunities for residents. ALDI is known as an employer of choice with market-leading wages and benefits, and we look forward to adding the best and brightest Arizona talent to our local ALDI team.” 

The four new ALDI Arizona stores will create 90 new jobs in the area. ALDI is currently hiring for these positions, ranging from store associates to store managers. Those interested in applying should visit the ALDI careers website at
