Aldi has further increased its presence in Co. Cork with the opening of its latest ‘Project Fresh’ store in Passage West, which has created 20 new jobs.

The latest opening is part of Aldi’s €160m investment in its Irish store network. Altogether, Aldi has committed €100m to constructing and opening 20 new stores by the end of 2019, while Project Fresh sees Aldi invest a further €60m in revamping the layout and design of all its 132 stores nationwide.
