Aldi today confirmed its plans to open a new store in the town by the end of 2022.
The new store will be located in Clonakilty’s town centre The Waterfront.
Aldi received planning permission for a store in April 2017 and this week lodged an application to alter its roof specifications to match Aldi’s new standard store design.
The development of the new Aldi store will see a substantial investment into the local area, with up to 80 jobs being created during the construction period and 20 permanent positions to become available upon opening.
“Aldi has a strong commitment to Cork, with our first store opening in Ballincollig over 20 years ago. We now operate 23 stores in the county, along with our Regional Distribution Centre in Mitchelstown," said Adam Ward, managing director Aldi Mitchelstown Regio.
"Our new Clonakilty store will bring great value to the doorsteps of locals who previously had to travel to shop at Aldi,” he added.
