Lidl Ireland is set to open a new store in Bettystown next Thursday morning. The new store will create 30 new jobs in Bettystown, which forms part of the Lidl’s overall commitment of 700 new roles in Ireland this year.

Britain’s Got Talent 2023 finalist and Meath’s young magician, Cillian O’Connor will be making magic as he officially opens the Bettystown store.

As part of the opening, Lidl will provide complimentary vouchers to the first ten customers in line on the morning, alongside offering savings on middle aisle favourites.

The Bettystown store team will also welcome representatives from East Coast Family Resource Centre on the morning of the opening to accept a donation of €1,000 in Lidl vouchers.

Having first opened in the county in 2004 in Trim, Lidl Ireland currently employs more than 110 people in county Meath across its stores in Ashbourne, Clonee, Trim, Dunshaughlin and Navan.

Sustainability is at the heart of the new store, with the retailer’s pioneering concept design incorporating LED lighting and an energy efficient heating system provided by 100% green energy. The spacious layout features high ceilings, wide aisles and increased natural light with glass fronted glazing.

“We are so excited to open our doors to the Bettystown community on Thursday, 14th September,” said store manager, Clara Cassidy. “We have been working hard behind the scenes to get the store up and running so customers can shop our great range of high-quality affordable products. We are looking forward to being part of the local community of Bettystown.”

Earlier this year, Lidl Ireland announced a total of €74 million was invested in the Meath agri-food industry in 2022. Lidl’s key Meath suppliers include a longstanding partnership with Meade Farm with whom the retailer has also partnered with to develop ‘The Lidl Farm’.

Together with Meade, Lidl has turned 8.5 acres of land into a free educational resource for schoolchildren at its Newbridge Distribution Centre demonstrating how the retailer’s relationship has developed over the years from a supplying produce to a fully fledged partnership.
