Aldi has announced plans to create 400 new jobs over the next three years, as part of a planned €100m expansion of its Irish store network.
The project will include 20 new stores in that period, along with extensions and renovations of its existing stores. The new stores will be located across Ireland. Early 2017 will see stores open in Trim, Co. Meath, Leixlip, Co. Kildare and Ennistymon, Co. Clare. An additional five stores are in the planning stages, along with nine extensions.
Giles Hurley, group managing director for Aldi Ireland, called the three-year plan “aggressive.
“We are building on the sustained growth we have achieved in the last few years,” he said. “The fantastic products supplied by our many Irish suppliers have been key to our success in Ireland, and as we grow and open more stores, we are committed to increasing the number of Irish products on our shelves.
“There will be more and more opportunities for Irish suppliers to work with us.” he added.
