"The spacious award-winning Project Fresh design of our new store makes for an easy and enjoyable shop,” said Kevin O’Leary, store manager of Aldi’s new River Valley, Swords store.
Energy Management Systems
The store will be powered by 100% green electricity, the discounter said.
Aldi has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind generated energy.
Aldi was the second retailer in Ireland to achieve ISO 50001 accreditation in recognition of its efforts to improve energy efficiencies.
The new store is part of Aldi’s €160 million investment in its Irish store network.
Aldi has committed €100 million to constructing and opening 20 new stores, while Project Fresh sees Aldi invest a further €60m in revamping the layout and design of all its stores nationwide.
The German retailer now operates 142 stores across the country.
