ALDI SEEKS NEW SITES FOR POTENTIAL STORE IN GREATER DUBLIN AREA

Aldi Ireland announced it is seeking new sites for potential future stores in the Greater Dublin Area, including Counties Kildare, Meath and Wicklow, to add to its network of 144 stores across Ireland.

Aldi is seeking freehold town-centre or nearby edge-of-centre sites suitable for retail development (minimum 0.8 acres). Ideally, sites would be located on a prominent main road with good visibility and access for customers. Aldi is also interested in leasing new or existing space in retail parks, purchasing or leasing space in district centres, or existing retail premises.

Aldi opened a new store this month in Rathnew Co. Wicklow and will also open a new store in Blanchardstown, Co. Dublin during November. Stores in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath and Sutton, Co. Dublin will follow before the end of March 2021. Recruitment is now under way for each store, with over 40 positions per store available.

Commenting, Niall O’Connor, Aldi Group Managing Director, said: “We are working to double our footprint of stores within Dublin, adding to the 22 we alreay have and bringing our unbeatable prices and value to more and more families. We have identified a number of suitable sites but are very interested in learning about other options in the Greater Dublin Area. We are offering a 1.5% fee for suitable referrals.”

Aldi is Ireland’s leading supermarket in terms of pay and was the first supermarket to introduce The Living Wage Technical Group’s recommended rate of €12.30 as its minimum, entry level of pay.
