Lidl Ireland has announced the opening of its new €12 million store on Boghall Road in Bray, County Wicklow this Thursday 9 September.
The new Wicklow store also creates up to 30 permanent jobs with the retailer as well as having supported a further 100 construction jobs throughout the development phase.
As Lidl is Ireland’s leading supporter of female participation in sport through its partnership with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association, it is only fitting that the store will be officially opened by Wicklow ladies’ football captain, Sarah Jane Winders.
Ewelina Sliwka, store manager, Bray Lidl, commented on the announcement, “The store is a brand new build and is so spacious and modern, giving our customers the enhanced shopping experience they deserve."
While maintaining its status as the most affordable place to shop, Lidl also continues to pioneer in the area of sustainability.
According to Lidl, the Bray store will only use renewable electricity as part of its 50001 ISO certified energy management system, providing free EV charging points to customers and includes roof mounted solar panels.
Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Lidl has donated more than 30,000 meals to local Wicklow charities and community groups, helping to alleviate food poverty.
Furthering its community-focused objectives under its 'A Better Tomorrow' corporate social responsibility programme, and to mark the new store opening, the store team at Lidl Bray have chosen local charity, Purple House Cancer Support, to benefit from a €1,000 donation that will be presented on the day.
"The team and I look forward to welcoming the local community to our new store when we open later this week,” she added.
