Lidl to open €12m store in Bray this week
7 September 2021
Lidl Ireland will open of its brand new €12 million store on Boghall Road in Bray, Co. Wicklow this Thursday 9 September. The new state-of-the-art store will create up to 30 permanent jobs with the retailer as well as having supported a further 100 construction jobs throughout the development phase.
As Lidl is Ireland’s leading supporter of female participation in sport through its partnership with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association, it is only fitting that the store will be officially opened by Wicklow ladies’ football captain, Sarah Jane Winders.
Lidl Bray is an example of Lidl’s leadership in the sustainable building field with the store using only renewable electricity as part of its 50001 ISO certified energy management system, providing free EV charging points to customers and includes roof mounted solar panels.
Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Lidl has donated more than 30,000 meals to local Wicklow charities and community groups, helping to alleviate food poverty. Furthering its community-focused objectives under its ‘A Better Tomorrow’ corporate social responsibility programme, and to mark the new store opening, the store team at Lidl Bray have chosen local charity, Purple House Cancer Support, to benefit from a €1,000 donation that will be presented on the day.
Store manager, Ewelina Sliwka, commented on the announcement: “We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in Bray to the south of the town, making our fantastic range of top-quality produce even more accessible to the Bray community. The store is a brand new build and is so spacious and modern, giving our customers the enhanced shopping experience they deserve. The team and I look forward to welcoming the local community to our new store when we open later this week.”
