Aldi’s Swords ‘Project Fresh’ store has reopened its doors to customers following an extensive renovation project, which has seen the store completely refurbished. Project Fresh sees Aldi invest a further €60m in revamping the layout and design of all of its 147 stores nationwide.

The newly refurbished store has received a full makeover in line with Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh design.

Featuring the new layout, the Swords store offers a wide selection of fresh food at the front of the store, hi-spec fixtures and fittings and new product category signage that provides a more efficient and hassle-free shopping experience.

The store will be powered by 100% green electricity. Aldi has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind generated energy.  The retailer has achieved ISO 50001 accreditation in recognition of its efforts to improve energy efficiencies.

Operating 24 stores in Co. Dublin, Aldi has become an established part of Dublin’s retail landscape, currently employing over 660 full time staff across the county. The group says it is seeking to recruit 278 new employees for its Dublin stores this year, and recently opened a flagship store in Bayside, Dublin creating 25 permanent jobs.

Aldi’s Dublin stores participate in Aldi’s national partnership with FoodCloud, donating surplus food to local charities daily. The stores have donated over 260,000 meals to its charity partners to date. Aldi’s Swords store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with DSPCA, National Rehabilitation Hospital and Sonas some of the local charities to receive the €500 bursary grant last year in Co. Dublin.

The new Swords store will be managed by Alan Weldon.
