Refurbished store is 33% bigger than before
ALDI’s Callan store reopened this month, just in time for Christmas, after undergoing a €2 million upgrade and expansion.
The refurbished store now offers customers a large shopping space, with the retail floor expanded by 33% from 990 square metres to 1,315 square metres. The redesign follows ALDI’s award-wining ‘Project Fresh’ design, providing shoppers with an improved shopping experience.
The store has been closed for over 3 weeks to facilitate the upgrade works.
This development is part of ALDI’s nationwide expansion which aims to contribute to the local community by creating new permanent job opportunities, and enhanced customer shopping experiences.
Originally ALDI’s Callan store opened in 2013 as the 100th store in the country. Since then, it has become an essential part of the town’s retail landscape. The store expansion includes the addition of four new permanent jobs, 20 extra car parking spaces and the incorporation of solar panels.
Welcoming the development, Ken Harrison, ALDI Callan Store Manager: “We are thrilled to announce the grand re-opening of ALDI’s Callan store today, following a €2 million revamp and extension. This marks a significant milestone in ALDI’s ongoing nationwide expansion, reinforcing our commitment to providing enhanced shopping experiences and creating job opportunities.” “The newly revitalised store now covers 1,315 square metres, 33% more retail space than we had before. That means there will be even more opportunity for our customers to pick up their favourite ALDI products at the unbeatable value they’ve come to know and love.”
“We are proud to incorporate sustainable practices into our expansion and enhance the overall experience for our customers. ALDI remains dedicated to providing exceptional value and we look forward to welcoming customers back to the improved Callan store.”
