Lidl Ireland has been granted final planning permission to knock and rebuild its store on Waterford Road, Co. Kilkenny, which will see a substantial €9 million investment in the local area.
According to the discounter, alongside an environmentally friendly Lidl store, the development includes the construction of 13 two-storey homes adjoining the new store.
The current store will be powered by 100% green electricity and will feature a roof mounted solar panel installation and two electric vehicle charging points in the store’s spacious car park.
Commenting on the announcement, Darren Bourke, store manager, Lidl Kilkenny said, “We have some really lovely and loyal customers here in Kilkenny and we are delighted to be bringing them a new state-of-the-art store to do their weekly shop in.”
Since first opening on Waterford Road in 2004, Lidl Kilkenny has become an essential part of the retail fabric of the town, offering customers the best quality produce for the best possible prices, the retailer said.
Lidl Ireland employs 5,000 employees across its 169 stores, head office in Tallaght and three distribution centres and regional offices based in Charleville, Mullingar and Newbridge.
