Lidl Ireland opened its new €12 million store on Boghall Road in Bray, County Wicklow this morning.
The new store 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 was officially opened by Wicklow ladies’ football captain, Sarah Jane Winders.
Store manager, Ewelina Sliwka, commented on the announcement, “Our new state-of-the-art store will offer our local customers an even better shopping experience with its spacious design and sustainability features throughout.
"This morning alone we’ve received so many well wishes from customers, old and new, and look forward to welcoming even more of the community to our new store as the week goes on,” she said.
'A Better Tomorrow'
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 welcomed representatives from local charity, Purple House Cancer Support, to accept a €1,000 donation.
