Upgrade to create 10 new permanent jobs
Aldi Ireland today announced its plans to extend and fully revamp its Galway Retail Park store in a move that will create ten new permanent jobs at the store.
The extended store will offer customers a larger shopping space as it receives a full ‘Project Fresh’ award winning makeover, including new hi-spec fixtures and fittings.
Aldi today submitted a planning application to Galway County Council. It hopes to begin construction in early 2022.
Commenting on the announcement, Colin Breslin, Regional Managing Director, Aldi Ireland said: “Creating a larger Aldi store featuring our award-winning Project Fresh format will provide an even better shopping experience for shoppers. The store team are hugely excited by this announcement and are looking forward to the store receiving a state-of-the art upgrade.”
Aldi’s Galway Retail Park store opened in 2005, and currently employs 24 staff. The store is one of the Aldi outlets offering a rapid grocery delivery service in partnership with Deliveroo.
Operating nine stores in County Galway, Aldi is deeply involved in the local community. Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Aldi’s Galway stores have donated over 41,400 meals to local charities to date. Each store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with MADRA Dog Rescue, East Galway & Midlands Cancer Support and Galway Mountain Rescue among those to avail of the €500 bursary grant in recent times.
