ALDI set to create 30 new jobs in Limerick as new Moyross store gets green light

ALDI Ireland confirmed today that it is set to open a new €7M store in Moyross, Co. Limerick. The news comes as ALDI has received local authority planning permission from Limerick County Council.

ALDI is planning to open the store in mid-2024, creating up to 30 permanent jobs, while up to 50 jobs will be supported during the construction period.

Once open, the 1,315sqm store will feature ALDI’s award-winning Project Fresh layout. There will be 117 car parking spaces available for customers and 10 bike parking spaces. ALDI will also be investing in four electric vehicle charging points, while the store will be powered by 100% green electricity and will feature 90sqm of solar panels on the roof.

Commenting on the decision, Colin Breslin, Regional Managing Director of ALDI Ireland said, “We are delighted to receive planning permission today from Limerick County Council to open a new store in Moyross. Every new ALDI store brings greater choice, quality and value to shoppers, which during a cost-of-living crisis, is arguably more important now than ever before.”

“The new store will provide even further opportunities for local food and drink producers to work with ALDI. Last year alone, we sourced €8.6 million of locally produced food and drink from Co. Limerick-based suppliers.”

ALDI partners with five innovative food and drink producers across Limerick, and is committed to growing its Irish supply base further and increasing the number of Irish products available in its stores. ALDI spent €1B with its Irish suppliers in 2021 and is currently working with over 330 Irish food and drink producers.

ALDI is also committed to supporting the local community. To date, ALDI’s Limerick stores have donated almost 42,000 meals to local charities through FoodCloud, saving the charities over €52,000. Each store is also part of ALDI’s Community Grants network, with Killeline Nursing Home and Milford Hospice some of the many local charities that have availed of the €500 bursary grant in recent years.

Research conducted earlier this year by Amárach Research on behalf of Barnardos and ALDI Ireland revealed that 51% of parents in Munster have spent less on household items and medical bills to afford food. Meanwhile, nearly one quarter (22%) of those with children in Munster often worried about not being able to provide food for children in their care and 11% skip meals in an average week, highlighting the great need for a discount retailer in the area.
