8 February 2022 | 0
Aldi Ireland has confirmed it is on track to open its new €6.5m store in Cootehill, Co. Cavan in mid-2023. The development will bring up to 25 permanent jobs to Cootehill, as well as create 60 jobs during the construction phase.
Following Aldi being granted planning permission for a new store, the 1,315sqm supermarket will be centrally located on Station Road close to Market Street.
Powered by 100% renewable electricity and offering four free-to-use electric vehicle charging points, Aldi says its new environmentally friendly store will further boost the group’s sustainability credentials. Ample parking facilities will be provided for those driving or cycling to the store, with 93 car parking spaces available along with 10 bike parking spaces. The new store will be constructed in Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh design.
“We have been planning to open in Cootehill for some time now so we are delighted to get the green light from Cavan County Council,” said Donald Mackay, Aldi regional managing director.
“The new store will also provide further opportunity for local food and drink producers to work with Aldi,” he added. “We sourced over €700,000 of locally produced food and drink from Cavan based suppliers last year.”
The new store will be Aldi’s second in County Cavan, with an existing store on the Dublin Road.
