Aldi opens new ‘Project Fresh’ green store in Kilkenny
By COLIN BARTLEY
A REVAMPED supermarket in Kilkenny – powered by 100% green electricity – has just opened its doors.
Aldi’s store on the Waterford Road has been redesigned to be more eco-friendly under it’s ‘Project Fresh’ store initiative. The store received a makeover which involved a new easier lay-out, installation of energy-efficient hi-spec fixtures and fittings, as well as new signage, all of which are being powered by 100% wind-generated energy.
The Kilkenny store’s extensive renovation is part of Aldi’s €160 million investment in refurbishment across its Irish store network. A further €60 million is being invested in Project Fresh.
Aldi has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind-generated energy. Aldi was the second retailer in Ireland to achieve ISO 50001 accreditation for its efforts to improve energy efficiencies.
“The Project Fresh revamp of our store is great news for shoppers. Its new spacious design makes for a very easy and enjoyable shop,” said store manager Tony Synnott.
“Our commitment to our customers is we will never be beaten on price and will always provide the best value. Our Swap and Save campaign continue and the goal of this campaign is to remind shoppers about the saving that can be generated by swapping their weekly shop to Aldi.”
Aldi currently operates four stores in Kilkenny.
