Supermarket giant to open new store in county Kilkenny town

Supermarket giant Aldi will open a new store in Castlecomer as part of a €320 million Irish expansion drive.

The county Kilkenny outlet is one of 30 new stores Aldi is building across the country as part of a €1.6 billion investment in its 149 Irish supermarkets and distribution network.

In a statement today, Aldi said the new stores will provide additional trading opportunities for the 330 Irish producers it now partners with. It will spend over €1 billion with Irish producers this year, an increase of almost 20% on 2020, including €250 million on Irish food and drink during the busy Christmas trading period.

Aldi Ireland Group Managing Director Niall O’Connor said: “We’re investing €320 million over the next three years in the opening of 30 new stores, bringing unbeatable prices, value and employment to more towns, villages and city suburbs.

“This investment builds on the €1.6 billion we have already invested in Ireland and is a clear sign of our ambition, and the demand that exists for Aldi to be in more locations across Ireland. It’s also great news for Irish food and drink producers, who will have more opportunity to trade with Aldi. We will spend over €1 billion with Irish producers this year, an increase of almost 20% on 2020.”

Aldi said its existing Kilkenny stores are “deeply involved in their local community”, donating more than 35,000 meals to local charities to date through the supermarket chain’s partnership with FoodCloud.

All of Aldi’s Kilkenny stores are also part of its Community Grants network, with Amber Women’s Refuge, South Eastern Mountain Rescue and Fairy Footprints some of the many local charities that have availed of the €500 bursary grant in recent years.
