Aldi’s nationwide expansion has continued with the opening of its new store in Clonakilty, Co. Cork, creating 20 new permanent jobs in the local area.
Located on Inchydoney Road, Clonakilty, the store was officially opened by Clonakilty store manager Peter Mullins. The new store is Aldi’s 25th to open in County Cork, with the group now operating 151 stores around Ireland.
The spacious new 1,315sqm store features Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh layout and features wide aisles and hi-spec fixtures and fittings. There are 108 car park spaces available to Aldi shoppers, along with four free-to-use electric vehicle chargers and 22 bike spaces.
The store has been designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible, powered by 100% green electricity and featuring solar panels on the roof of the store. It features Aldi’s new electronic shelf labels in store in place of traditional paper price labels, meaning that stock or price changes can easily and quickly be communicated to customers.
“Our new store is fantastic news for local shoppers,” said Peter Mullins, Aldi Clonakilty store manager. “The spacious design means it is easy for Clonakilty customers to pick up what they need, and our aim is to ensure the very best customer shopping experience.”
“Our promise to our Clonakilty customers is that we will never be beaten on price, and we will always provide the best value,” he added. “Our Inflation savings campaign continues, and the goal is to remind shoppers about the savings they can make by swapping their weekly shop to Aldi.”
Overall, Aldi has made a capital investment of €226 million in Co. Cork since opening Aldi’s first Irish store there in 1999.
