Lidl Ireland has announced that its brand-new store in Knocknacarra is now open.
Lidl’s latest store in Galway will see a significant local investment of more than €13 million and create over 30 permanent jobs with the retailer.
Galway Ladies’ Football star and Lidl ambassador Nicola Ward officially opened the new Knocknacarra store with Pauline McLoughlin, store manager, and Shane Brosnan, sales operations manager.
According to the discounter, the modern store at Lidl Knocknacarra has a spacious interior layout, high ceilings, and wide aisles.
It also incorporates a large bakery area with freshly baked breads and pastries – one of Lidl’s most popular features, it added.
Lidl also continues to pioneer in the area of sustainability while maintaining its status as ‘the most affordable place to shop’.
The new environmentally friendly Knocknacarra store, with roof-mounted solar panels, will be powered by 100% green/renewable electricity as part of its ISO 50001 certified energy management system.
Commenting at the opening, Pauline McLoughlin, store manager of Lidl Knocknacarra, said, “The store will offer customers an even better shopping experience, with its spacious design, ample parking, and sustainability features throughout.
“The new store is a positive addition to the local area of Knocknacarra, making our fantastic range of top-quality produce available at the best-possible prices. We look forward to welcoming customers.”
‘A Better Tomorrow’
Advancing Lidl Ireland’s community-focused objectives under its ‘A Better Tomorrow’ corporate social responsibility programme, and to mark the opening, the staff members of the Knocknacarra store have chosen to donate €1,000 in Lidl vouchers to Galway Autism Partnership.
Galway Autism Partnership is a community-based charity providing services and support to autistic people and their families living in Galway City and County.
