Aldi Unveils Revamped Kilrush 'Project Fresh' Store
Aldi’s Kilrush 'Project Fresh' store has reopened its doors to customers following an extensive 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.
Featuring the new layout, the Kilrush Store offers a wide selection of fresh food at the front of the store, hi-spec fixtures and fittings and new signage that provides a more efficient and hassle-free shopping experience, the discounter said.
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.
"Its new spacious design makes for a very easy and enjoyable shop,” he added.
Clare’s Retail Landscape
Operating four stores in Co. Clare, Aldi has become an established part of Clare’s retail landscape, proving very popular with shoppers for bringing greater competition, choice and value for money. Aldi employs 104 full time staff in Clare, spending €5.2M on wages annually. It is recruiting 11 new employees for its Clare stores this year, all of which are full-time positions.
In 2020, Aldi sourced €2.8 million of locally produced food and drink from Clare based suppliers. Aldi partners with five Clare producers, and last year began working with four new suppliers in County Clare.
Aldi’s Kilrush store participates in Aldi’s national partnership with FoodCloud, donating surplus food to local charities daily.
The store has donated more than 16,770 meals to its charity partners to date. Aldi’s Kilrush store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with Mid-West Simon Community just one of several charities availing of the €500 bursary grant last year.
