17 November 2016 | 0
Aldi has further increased its presence in Co. Cork with the opening of its latest store in Skibbereen. A total of 20 jobs have been created at the new store which is managed by Peter Mullins.
The new Skibbereen store is Aldi’s 21st store in Cork, bringing the total number of Aldi stores in Ireland to 127.
To celebrate, Aldi hosted a day filled with family fun and festivities, with the RedFM team on-site playing music and entertainers providing face painting for the kids. Many spot prizes were up for grabs, with one lucky customer scooping two tickets to the upcoming Ireland vs New Zealand rugby match.
The retailer also served up treats throughout the day using its own products, many of which are sourced from Irish suppliers. Indeed, Aldi says it has established roots in many of Ireland’s local communities, having developed longstanding partnerships with numerous Irish producers.
Suppliers from the local area include Bandon Co-op, which supplies Aldi’s creamy butter, Irish Yogurts of Clonakilty, which supplies Aldi’s multi-award winning Specially Selected Duneen Irish Yogurt range and Carbery of Ballineen, which supplies cheese to Aldi.
