Aldi, the national grocery chain, has expanded its delivery service into several areas in Illinois, including Peoria and East Peoria starting Monday.

The delivery system is handled through San Francisco-based Instacart, an online ordering and home delivery service that works with other retailers.

Customers can shop for items online at and pay for the order. A shopper will select the items from the store and deliver them. According to the Instacart website, the delivery charge is $6 for orders of at least $35.

First-time Instacart customers in the area can take advantage of $20 off, plus free delivery of their first order of $35 or more, with the code LOVEALDI through May 31.

Aldi's Peoria stores are at 3420 N. University St. and 9120 Allen Road. The East Peoria store is at 251 Clock Tower Drive.
