ALDI Ireland will be bringing the best prices in Irish retail and 30 new permanent jobs to Roches St. Limerick City, following Limerick City and County Council granting Aldi planning permission to build a new store. 100 jobs will be created during the construction phase.
Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh design will be powered by 100% green electricity.
There will be ample parking available for customers, whether cycling or driving to the new store. Aldi will also be investing in the future of Limerick City through the provision of three free-to-use electric vehicle charging points.
Commenting, Colin Breslin, Aldi Regional Managing Director said: “Limerick City and County Council’s decision is great news for Limerick shoppers. We can’t wait to come to Limerick City Centre and bring our amazing prices to even more customers.”
“Our dedicated customers know that we won’t be beaten on price, and we are committed to providing the best value possible to shoppers. Our Swap & Save campaign reminds shoppers about the saving that can be generated by swapping their weekly shop to Aldi.”
The new store will be Aldi’s fourth in County Limerick, with existing stores on Childers Road and Dublin Road in Limerick City, and a store in Newcastle West. Each store is part of Aldi’s food waste reduction programme, with Aldi’s Limerick stores having donated over 40,000 meals through FoodCloud to local charities.
Each store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with The Butterfly Club, Barnardos Family Support Service Limerick South and the Irish Cancer Society some of the many local charities that have availed of the €500 bursary grant in recent years.
