Aldi, the German-discount grocery chain, has garnered a massive following for its amazing prices, specialty store-brand items, and fun new finds released on a monthly basis. Beyond food, the store has plenty of household goods including glassware, coolers, and pool floats, perfect for whatever festivities you’re hosting this Fourth of July. 

Earlier this year, Aldi also announced that it is lowering prices on more than 250 summer essentials this year, ensuring everybody can participate in summer fun. As much as you try to prep in advance, we know things happen. So if you need some last-minute items to throw on the grill or patio decorations to set the scene, will you be able to stop by your local Aldi on July Fourth?

Yes but with some restrictions. Aldi will be open on the Fourth of July but with limited store hours, with many locations closing at 4 p.m. You can use the company’s store locator to check the hours of the location nearest you. 

Whether you’re going out on the actual holiday or are shopping in advance, Aldi has plenty of options to stock up on to throw the ultimate summer bash. If you’re into seafood, pick up this 2-pound box of wild caught snow crab clusters for just $16.99. Looking for the perfect side dish? Aldi recently released $2 pasta salad kits in fun flavors like elote, dill pickle, and chipotle. They also have an ultimate grill master collection which has everything you need for a barbecue including beef, chicken, and pork

Need a quick and easy veggie side to break up all the meat you might be eating? Pick up these $3 frozen garlic Parmesan roasted vegetables. Our food editor, Patty Catalano, says you can easily cook them on the grill. “Heat a cast-iron skillet on the grill and prepare the vegetables according to the stovetop instructions.” So there’s no need to start up another appliance or forget you popped them in the microwave while you’re outside enjoying the summer sun. 

Finish off the evening with a box of these fan-favorite frozen lemonade bars. You can grab a box of 4 for just $2.99, and they come in three flavors. Plus, proceeds from the sales go toward the nonprofit organization, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, which helps fight childhood cancer.
