Lidl Ireland has announced the opening of its new store in Charleville, on Thursday, 28 April.
According to the retailer, Lidl’s Charleville store will see a significant local investment of more than €8 million and will create over 30 permanent jobs with the retailer as well as having supported over 75 construction jobs throughout the development phase.
Lidl highlighted that the new environmentally friendly store, with roof mounted solar panels will be powered by 100% green renewable electricity as part of its 50001 ISO certified energy management system.
In addition, the new store will feature a wildflower garden and become Lidl’s latest Pollinator-Friendly store in Ireland, which will 'create a haven' for pollinators like bees, butterflies and hoverflies.
Commenting on the opening, Stephen O’Connell, store manager, Lidl Charleville said, “The store will offer our customers an even better shopping experience with its spacious design and sustainability features throughout, as well as great value and fresh produce that Lidl is famous for.
"We have been working hard to get the store up and running and we look forward to welcoming customers new and old when doors open next week.”
'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 at the Charleville store have chosen to donate €1,000 in Lidl vouchers to St Joseph’s Foundation.
A non-profit organisation, founded in 1968, to provide services and supports to children and adults with special needs, and their families.
Lidl’s Charleville store will be open daily: Monday – Saturday 8:00am – 10:00pm, and Sunday 9:00am – 9:00pm from Thursday 28 April 2022 at 8:00am.
