Aldi Ireland Jigginstown Store Aims To Expand By 35%

Aldi Ireland has submitted a planning permission application to extend and fully revamp its Jigginstown store, in Naas.

The planned expansion, submitted to Kildare County Council, will see five new permanent jobs created for the town.

Aldi Jigginstown’s retail floor space will increase by 35%, from 846 square metres to 1,142 square metres.

If the council grants planning permission, the project will commence in 2025.

‘An Even Better Shopping Experience’

Speaking about the Jigginstown expansion, the managing director of buying and services at Aldi Ireland, Colin Breslin, said, “Our new, larger Jigginstown store will provide an even better shopping experience for customers in Kildare.

“The Aldi Jigginstown Naas team are excited by this announcement, and we are looking forward to the store revamp, which is part of Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh store layout.

“In addition, it’s great to see five new jobs being created in the town.”

Aldi Expansions

Aldi operates nine stores in Kildare, as well as a regional distribution centre and a head-office facility.

The retailer employs over 700 staff members in the county, spending almost €30 million on wages annually.

Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Aldi’s Kildare stores have donated over 88,000 meals to local charities to date.

Each store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, supporting organisations such as the Irish Wheelchair Association, the Lilywhite Wheelers Multi-Sport Junior Club, and the Samaritans Newbridge in recent years.

The announcement follows Aldi’s commitment – revealed in September 2023 – to investing €33.6 million in four Midlands counties over the next two years.

The discounter has already received planning permission for new stores in Moate, in Westmeath, Tullamore, in Offaly, and Granard, in Longford.

It also submitted a planning application for a new store in Kilcock, Kildare.

If the councils approve planning permission, all four proposed stores will open by 2025.
