Aldi Ireland recently announced that work had commenced on the construction of its new Mountbellew store.
According to the discount retailer, the new Co Galway-based store is expected to open next year and will create 30 new permanent jobs.
The development on College Road, Mountbellew, Co Galway will see a substantial investment of €7 million into the local area.
The new environmentally friendly store will be powered by 100% renewable electricity and will be constructed in accordance with Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh design.
New Store Features
The 1,315 square metre store will feature 120 car parking spaces and 10 bike parking spaces, and Aldi will also be investing in the future of Mountbellew through the provision of four electric vehicle charging points.
The store is part of a larger development being built by Galway-based Cahermorris Developments, which includes a filling station and residential development.
Colin Breslin, managing director, Aldi Regional, said he is "delighted to break ground" at the site of its new Mountbellew store.
Breslin noted that the new store will also provide further opportunities for local food and drink producers to work with Aldi.
"Last year, we sourced €28 million of locally produced food and drink from our Co Galway based suppliers,” he added.
Aldi Ireland currently operates nine stores in Co Galway and has recently received planning permission for a store on Old Monivea Road, Ballybrit, which will open in Autumn 2023.
