125 jobs to be created with new Aldi store in Kilkenny
The new store will be located in the centre of Castlecomer.
A new Aldi store is set to open in Kilkenny, it has been confirmed.
Castlecomer will play host to the new store, which will create 25 permanent jobs.
Expected to open in 2022, the new store will also create 100 jobs during the construction phase.
The new 1,315 sqm store will be located in the centre of Castlecomer, on the site of the town’s former Creamery.
The site, which has been vacant for several years, is being developed by Greenstripe, and will feature Aldi’s store as the anchor tenant, along with additional retail, office and residential units as part of the 52,500 square feet development.
Commenting on the new store, Colin Breslin, Aldi Regional Managing Director said: "Kilkenny County Council’s decision is great news for customers. We can’t wait to come to Castlecomer and bring our amazing prices to even more shoppers.
"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 sixth in Kilkenny, with shops already on Waterford Road and Hebron Road in Kilkenny Town, Graiguenamanagh, Ferrybank and Callan.
Aldi recently launched a click and collect service at some of its stores across Ireland following a successful trial in some of its Dublin stores.
