Aldi Ireland is seeking new sites for potential/future stores in the Dublin area, to add to its network of 148 stores across Ireland.
The discount retailer noted that it is seeking freehold town centre or nearby edge-of-centre sites suitable for retail development (minimum 0.8 acres).
Aldi noted that, ideally, the sites should be located on prominent main roads, with good visibility and access for customers.
It is also interested in leasing new or existing space in retail parks and purchasing or leasing space in district centres or existing retail premises.
This year, Aldi has opened new stores in Bayside, Co. Dublin, and in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath, and it will open a new store in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, during November.
Recruitment is under way for the Newbridge store, with 25 permanent positions available.
“We are working to extend our network of stores within Dublin, having recently opened two new stores, bringing our total to 24 stores,” said Aldi group managing director Niall O’Connor.
“This delivers more Dublin customers unbeatable prices on awarding-winning products.”
Suitable Sites Identified
O’Connor said that the company has identified a number of suitable sites, but Aldi is very interested in learning about other options in the Dublin area.
“We are offering a 1.5% fee for suitable referrals,” he said.
Aldi employs over 4,650 people across the country, with stores in each county in the Republic of Ireland.
