Aldi Ireland has announced the opening of its new store in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath, creating 25 permanent jobs in the local area.
The new store is Aldi’s seventh to open in County Meath.
Located on Lagore Road close to the town centre, the store was officially opened by Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English, TD.
Welcoming Aldi’s arrival in Dunshaughlin, Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English said, “The last 18 months has been very challenging for our retail sector so it’s great to see Aldi show the confidence to continue to invest in Ireland and open new stores."
"Aldi’s new Dunshaughlin store is a fantastic addition to the town and I’ve no doubt will play a central role in the retail fabric of the town for years to come,” he added.
Featuring Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh layout and design, the new store boasts a large shop floor spanning 1,152m², wide aisles and hi-spec fixtures and fittings.
There are also 91 car park spaces available to customers in Dunshaughlin, along with fifteen bicycle rack stands.
