Aldi plans larger store in Clonmel
22 December 2020
Aldi Ireland is planning to extend and fully revamp its Clonmel store in a move that the retailer says will create ten new full-time jobs.
The extended store will offer customers a larger shopping space, with the retail floor increasing by 25% from 1,125sqm to 1,405sqm. Clonmel shoppers will also benefit from an additional nine car parking spaces (135 spaces in total), and the introduction of four electric vehicle charging points. The store will also receive a full ‘Project Fresh’ makeover, including new hi-spec fixtures and fittings.
Aldi will shortly be submitting a planning application to Tipperary County Council. It hopes to pursue the project in mid-2021.
Bart Kosinski, Aldi Clonmel store manager is confident the move “will provide an even better shopping experience for Clonmel shoppers whilst contributing positively to the town”.
Open since 2003 on Western Road, Aldi Clonmel currently employs 25 full-time staff.
Aldi now operates eight stores in County Tipperary, Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Aldi’s Tipperary stores have donated over 151,000 meals to local charities to date. The retailer also emphasises that each store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with the Clonmel Scout Group, Brothers of Charity and RNLI Lough Derg among those to avail of the €500 bursary grant in recent times.
