Another Aldi store is coming to the Marble County!
It's announced plans to open 30 new stores across the country over the next three years.
Castlecomer in the north of the county is one of four new stores announced by the German supermarket chain set to be up-and-running by the end of next year.
It's part of the brand new 52,500 square foot development on the site of the old Creamery, which will also see additional retail, office and residential units, with a planning application already submitted to
The Creamery’s historic three-storey mill building, a protected structure, will also be preserved and fully refurbished. A planning application for the 52,500 square feet development on the eight-acre site has been submitted to Kilkenny County Council.
"Aldi’s existing Kilkenny stores are deeply involved in their local community, having donated over 35,000 meals to local charities to date through Aldi’s partnership with FoodCloud" said Group Managing Director Niall O'Connor.
"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."
The German supermarket chain says it's part of a 320 million euro expansion over the next three years.
Cahersiveen in Kerry, Ballina in Mayo, and Clonakilty in Cork are among the other locations it plans to open new stores in, next year.
