Applegreen conducting full investigation after footage surfaces of rat in store in Dublin

Applegreen say the incident “falls well below our high operating standards”.

Applegreen are conducting a full investigation after video footage surfaced of a rat in the deli area of a service station in Dublin.

Applegreen Cherry Orchard has been temporarily closed as a result of a “a pest control issue”, which came to light after footage widely shared on social media showed a rat emerging from an open loaf of Brennan’s bread in the deli area of the store.

In a statement issued to JOE on Thursday, an Applegreen spokesperson said: “Our Cherry Orchard site has been temporarily closed following a pest control issue.

“We are conducting a full investigation into the incident, which falls well below our high operating standards.

“The health and safety of our customers is our first priority and we are taking this issue extremely seriously.”
