Lidl Ireland has announced its Ballyvolane, Cork store is now open after an extensive refurbishment.
The reinvestment in the supermarket will create six new jobs in the community adding to the existing store team of 21 employees.
The Ballyvolane store closed temporarily earlier this year while it underwent the transformation including a front and side extension adding to an even more spacious shopping experience including full height glazing on the front façade offering natural light within the sales area, the discounter said.
Furthermore, new external additions to the Ballyvolane store include improved carpark facilities with enhanced car park lighting; additional disabled and parent & child parking spaces and the provision of two new EV (electric) car charging spaces.
Commenting at the opening Jackie O'Regan, store manager, Lidl Ballyvolane expressed enthusiasm regarding the new facilities at the retail store and Lidl’s €3 million investment to the local community.
”There is a real buzz of excitement in the community about the new refurbished store that will offer customers an extensive range of quality products including the latest Kickstart range of premium Irish products at an affordable price," O'Regan said.
"Behind the scenes our team have been working tirelessly to ensure the store is ready to welcome back new and loyal customers to our doors,” she added.
Lidl Ireland has an ongoing relationship with the Cope – ability to work and support their program throughout stores in Cork.
