Aldi Stores (Ireland) today opened a new store in Kenmare, Co. Kerry, in a move which has created 20 new jobs.
The new Kenmare store is Aldi’s seventh store in Co. Kerry. This brings the total number of Aldi stores in Ireland to 116, with the first Aldi stores in Ireland opened in November 1999.
To celebrate the opening of the new store, Aldi is serving up breakfast delights and tasty treats throughout the morning. All samples are prepared using Aldi products, many of which are sourced from Irish suppliers.
The day will be filled with family fun and festivities, with entertainers providing face painting, balloon modelling, music and games for the kids. Radio Kerry is on site to broadcast from the store opening, while five lucky Aldi shoppers will scoop €100 each in Aldi shopping vouchers.
Speaking at the store opening, Ivan Hoffman, manager of Aldi’s new Kenmare store said: “Buying fresh, quality Irish foods in Kenmare just got easier thanks to the opening of our new Aldi store. Each Aldi store we have opened so far has been a fantastic success and we are looking forward to serving the local community.”
