Aldi Ireland will be opening two new stores in Co Galway. The supermarket group’s latest project creates up to 60 new permanent jobs in Ireland.
A planning application will be submitted by Aldi to the Galway City Council for a new store on Old Monivea Road, Ballybrit.
They will also be constructing a new Tuam store and the work is all set to start in 2021. Aldi also said that it is looking for an appropriate site in Athenry for a new store.
Aldi group said that almost 50 job opportunities will be created during the time of the construction and 30 permeant jobs will be available after its opening.
Aldi got final planning permission for its new Tuam store in July, after buying part of Glynn’s Homevalue Hardware site on the Ballygaddy Road in the centre of Tuam. Here itself around 30 new permanent jobs will be created in 2022.
Currently the supermarket giants have nine stores in Co Galway. In 2021, Aldi is also planning to facelift its West City Centre Retail Park and Headford Road stores.
Aldi now provides job for over 4,500 people and operates 145 stores across the country, with stores in each county in the Republic of Ireland.
