Tesco Ireland has recently opened the doors to a brand-new Tesco store at South Lotts, Dublin 4.
According to the retailer, 25 roles have been created via internal and external recruitment drives.
The new store was officially opened by recently appointed store manager Craig Rogers.
Rogers said, “It’s a big day for the team here, as we officially open South Lotts, and it’s great to see customers coming through the doors already this morning.
“A lot of work has gone into opening, and I hope the customers can see that. The whole team and I are looking forward to meeting and getting to know the community.”
Twenty-Five Years In Ireland
Geoff Byrne, chief operating officer, Tesco Ireland, said, “This is the third of many store openings this year, and it’s just as exciting now as it was 25 years ago, when the first stores opened in Ireland.
“We welcome South Lotts to our store network as we celebrate 25 years in Ireland. We’re committed to ensuring that our stores play a big part in local communities, and we’re looking forward to serving the community for many years to come.”
South Lotts is the 154th Tesco store in Ireland providing supports to communities.
Three local groups – Ringsend & Irishtown Community Centre, Ringsend GNS, and Clanna Gael Fontenoy GAA Club – will feel the benefit of donations from the Community Fund in the coming weeks, while Food Waste Heroes from OLIO’s food-sharing enterprise will collect surplus food from the store.
Colleagues in South Lotts will join over 13,000 of their Tesco colleagues across Ireland in their fundraising efforts for the Children’s Health Foundation, supporting sick children and their families in CHI hospitals and urgent-care centres at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly.
As well as the new living green roof – to store rainwater and absorb CO2 – Tesco noted that it will continue to commit to its sustainability strategy, as the South Lotts store has been fitted with carbon-free heating, cooling utilising electric heat pumps, and heat recovered from the fridge packs.
