Aldi Ireland has unveiled new plans today to replace and upgrade its Hanover Road, Carlow store in a move that will create an additional five new permanent jobs at the store.
The new and improved store will offer customers a larger shopping space, with the retail floor increasing by 32% from 998sqm to 1,315sqm, the discounter said.
The new store will also be built according to Aldi’s award-winning ‘Project Fresh’ design, providing shoppers with an improved shopping experience, it added.
'Better Shopping Experience'
Aldi’s Hanover Road store was the first store to open in County Carlow in May 2002. It currently employs 27 full-time staff.
“Creating a larger Aldi store featuring our award-winning Project Fresh format will provide an even better shopping experience for Carlow shoppers whilst contributing positively to the town," said Donald Mackay, regional managing director, Aldi Ireland.
Aldi said it will submit a planning application to Carlow County Council later this week and is aiming to start the store upgrade project in 2022.
