Aldi confirms the fan-favorite shopping event will return “in a few weeks”.

However, depending on the carrier’s volume, it may take up to 10 business days.

Luckily, the $7.95 fee is easy to avoid by simply shopping in-store.

Or you can place your order online and pick it up in store, which is another free option.

Five Below has more than 1,100 locations nationwide.


With its expensive, traditional delivery methods, Five Below is something of an outlier among discounters.

More stores are turning to third-party apps like DoorDash, Uber Eats and InstaCart for home deliveries.

While the apps were originally developed for grocery delivery, more and more large retailers are now joining in.

For example, Party City recently joined Uber Eats and Staples DoorDash.

Even the extreme discount chain Dollar General uses DoorDash to fulfill its delivery orders.

Rival store Dollar Tree uses InstaCart.

The store is currently offering free delivery on the first three orders to new customers.

These third-party apps offer fast delivery in under an hour and flexible options for replacements.
