Aldi Unveils New Clifden Store Following €1m Makeover

Aldi’s Clifden has announced the reopening of its 'Project Fresh' store following an extensive €1 million renovation project, which has seen the store completely refurbished.

The newly refurbished store has received a full makeover in line with Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh design. 

Aldi’s Project Fresh store layout was recognised at the Checkout National Retail Supplier Awards, by scooping the Best New Store Build award for Aldi’s Ennistymon store, one of Aldi’s first Project Fresh stores.

New Layout

Featuring the new layout, the Clifden Store offers a wide selection of fresh food at the front of the store, hi-spec fixtures and fittings and new product category signage that provides a more efficient and hassle-free shopping experience, the discounter said.


Speaking at the reopening, Amanda Flaherty, Clifden store manager said, “The Project Fresh revamp of our store is great news for our local customers in Clifden.

"Its new spacious design makes for a very easy and enjoyable shop,” she added.

The store will be powered by 100% green electricity.

Aldi said it has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind generated energy. 

Aldi has achieved ISO 50001 accreditation in recognition of its efforts to improve energy efficiencies.


Galway Recruitment Drive 

Aldi now operates nine stores in Galway.

It is seeking to recruit 31 new employees for its Galway stores this year.

Opportunities available include 26 permanent positions.



Aldi’s Clifden store participates in Aldi’s national partnership with FoodCloud, donating surplus food to local charities daily, the retailer said. 

Aldi’s Galway stores have donated over 40,000 meals to its charity partners to date.

Aldi’s Clifden store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with MADRA Dog Rescue, East Galway & Midlands Cancer Support and Burren Animal Rescue some of the many local charities that have availed of the €500 bursary grant in recent years.
