Aldi has announced the opening of its new store in Clonakilty, Co. Cork, creating 20 new permanent jobs in the local area.
Located on Inchydoney Road, Clonakilty, the store was officially opened by Peter Mullins, store manager.
The new store is Aldi’s 25th to open in County Cork.
The spacious new 1,315-square-metre store features Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh layout and features wide aisles and hi-spec fixtures and fittings.
There are 108 car-parking spaces available to Aldi shoppers, along with four free-to-use electric vehicle chargers and 22 bike spaces.
Speaking at the store opening, Mullins said, “The spacious design means it is easy for Clonakilty customers to pick up what they need, and our aim is to ensure the very best customer shopping experience.
“Our promise to our Clonakilty customers is that we will never be beaten on price, and we will always provide the best value. Our inflation savings campaign continues, and the goal is to remind shoppers about the savings they can make by swapping their weekly shop to Aldi.”
The store has been designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible, powered by 100% green electricity and featuring solar panels on the roof.
It features Aldi’s new electronic shelf labels in store, in place of traditional paper price labels, meaning that stock or price changes can easily and quickly be communicated to customers.
Aldi noted that it has made a capital investment of €226 million in Co. Cork since opening its first Irish store there, in 1999.
Aldi now operates 151 stores around Ireland.
