Aldi Ireland has announced that it has begun the installation of self-service checkouts at select stores.

According to the discounter, the trial of these new checkouts will open to the public this Friday (24 May), with Aldi noting that it is committed to retaining this service for customers, while continuing to innovate with new initiatives.

Aldi’s Sallynoggin, Co. Dublin ‘Project Fresh’ store has recently reopened its doors to customers following an extensive renovation project investment of over €1 million which has seen the store interior completely refurbished.

The updated Sallynoggin store will feature the new self-service checkout.

Project Fresh

The Co. Dublin store also features the new Project Fresh layout that includes a wide selection of fresh food at the front of the store, hi-spec fixtures and fittings throughout the store plus new product category signage.

Speaking at the reopening, Matthew Marciniszyn, store manager, Aldi Sallynoggin, said that he is “thrilled” to take part in the trial of Aldi’s brand new self-checkouts.

“The Project Fresh revamp of our store is fantastic news for our local customers, he added.

“The new spacious design makes for a very enjoyable shop and customers can easily find everything they need with convenient store opening hours.”

Environmentally powered store

According to Aldi, it has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind generated energy.

The retailer has achieved ISO 50001 accreditation in recognition of its efforts to improve energy efficiencies.

The renovated Sallynoggin store will also receive a CO2 upgrade, meaning there will be more environmentally friendly refrigerants in store, it added.

Community supports

Aldi’s Sallynoggin store is deeply rooted in the local community and participates in Aldi’s national partnership with FoodCloud, donating surplus food to local charities on a daily basis.

To date, the store has donated over 9,200 meals through FoodCloud, equating to almost 3,900kgs of CO2 emissions avoided.

Aldi’s Sallynoggin store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with Women’s Collective Ireland, Tallaght Cancer Support Group and Irish Heart Foundation some of the local charities that have benefitted from the programme in
recent years.

Opening hours

Aldi has recently announced extended opening hours across its store network.

The new opening hours include the earlier opening time of 8am from Monday to Saturday, as well as closing one hour later, at 10pm, on Saturdays only. Sunday hours remain unchanged, opening at 9am and closing at 9pm.
