Lidl Ireland has submitted a planning application for a site on Dock Road in Limerick.
If approved, the new store will expand the retailer’s Limerick city portfolio to four stores.
New local jobs
The new store will create 30 new local jobs in Limerick.
Lidl says that it is working with architects and planners to ensure that the new development and addition of a Lidl store will ‘contribute positively and add a vibrancy’ to the Limerick docklands area.
As well as a spacious interior layout, high ceilings and wide aisles, the new store
will also incorporate a range of sustainability features, including an ISO 50001 certified Energy Management System, electric vehicle charger spaces, and a solar panel system.
Lidl says that it is currently assessing all new sites to see how construction timelines are affected by the global pandemic but hopes to open the Dock Road store some time in 2022.
