Food retailer Iceland has announced that it will open its second store in Kerry in Listowel this month, bringing 20 new jobs to the town.
The new store will have 8,200 square feet of retail space and will stock the full range of Iceland's fresh and frozen products.
Ron Metcalfe, Managing Director of Iceland Ireland, said, “Three years after opening in Tralee, it’s fantastic to be back in the Kingdom to open our second Kerry store.
“We have had a great response from customers shopping at the Tralee store over the last few years and are delighted to now bring Iceland’s great quality and great value products to the Listowel community.”
Anthon Russell, Store Manager of Iceland Listowel, added, “We are very excited to open the new Listowel store on May 22nd and to show the people in this region of Kerry all that Iceland has to offer.”
This new store will be Iceland’s 23rd store in total across 13 counties in Ireland.
Iceland recently announced that it removed palm oil from own label food with a total of 130 products being reformulated by the end of 2018.
The retailer also announced that it will convert all its private-label range to plastic-free packaging by 2023.
