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 said it is seeking freehold town-centre or nearby edge-of-centre sites suitable for retail development (minimum 0.8 acres).
Aldi said that, ideally, the sites would be located on a prominent main road with good visibility and access for customers.
It is also interested in leasing new or existing space in retail parks, purchasing or leasing space in district centres, or existing retail premises.
Recruitment is underway 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.
