ALDI has announced an opening date for its new €11m ‘living roof’ Kinsale store
Planning permission has been granted.
And today, ALDI Ireland has confirmed its new €11m store in Kinsale will open in the summer of 2025.
The supermarket chain has announced that 50 jobs will be created during the construction phase, with 30 permanent roles being created when the store opens.
The new 1,315 sqm store will be located on New Road, with 102 car parking spaces available for customers in addition to 24 bike parking spaces.
ALDI will also be providing four electric vehicle charging points, two of which will be accessible parking spaces.
The store, designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible, will be powered by 100% renewable electricity, complemented by 90sqm of solar panels on its roof. The innovative design means the store roof will also feature large sections of living roof, further promoting local biodiversity.
“This is great news for Cork shoppers and the local economy.” said Colin Breslin, ALDI Regional Managing Director.
“Our new store will also provide further opportunity for local food and drink producers to work with ALDI. Last year, we sourced €70M of locally produced food and drink products from our Cork-based suppliers last year.”
