The U.S.-based grocery retailer ALDI has reportedly formed a partnership with Instacart to expand its delivery services throughout the nation.

Recently, the company inked a partnership with Walmart Canada that launched 17 more locations in Toronto and Winnipeg through the Instacart network. Reportedly, Instacart had previously confirmed to expand its services across 75 more Kroger markets by October.
