Lidl Ireland is set to opening its new store in Charleville next Thursday, 28 April.

Involving an investment of more than €8 million, the new store will create over 30 permanent jobs with the retailer as well as having supported over 75 construction jobs throughout the development phase.

When doors open, customers at Lidl Charleville, which has undergone an extensive knock and rebuild, will be able to shop the new modern store that has a spacious interior layout with a 1,420 sqm shop floor with high ceilings and wide aisles. It also incorporates a large bakery area with freshly baked breads and pastries, one of Lidl’s most popular features.

The new environmentally friendly store, featuring roof mounted solar panels, will be powered by 100% green renewable electricity as part of Lidl’s 50001 ISO certified energy management system. Free EV charging points will also be provided to customers.

In addition, the new store will feature a wildflower garden and become Lidl’s latest Pollinator-Friendly store in Ireland. This creates a haven for pollinators like bees, butterflies and hoverflies.

“We are thrilled to be opening our brand-new store in Charleville,” said Stephen O’Connell, store manager at Lidl Charleville. “The store will offer our customers an even better shopping experience with its spacious design and sustainability features throughout, as well as great value and fresh produce that Lidl is famous for,” he continued. “We have been working hard to get the store up and running and we look forward to welcoming customers new and old when doors open next week.”

Advancing Lidl Ireland’s community-focused objectives under its ‘A Better Tomorrow’ corporate social responsibility programme, and to mark the opening, the staff at the Charleville store have chosen to donate €1,000 in Lidl vouchers to St Joseph’s Foundation. A non-profit organization, founded in 1968, the foundation provides services and supports to children and adults with special needs, and their families.

Lidl’s Charleville store will be open daily: Monday – Saturday 8am – 10pm, and Sunday 9am – 9pm.
