What the new Aldi in Cahersiveen will look like.

ALDI has today confirmed the expected opening date of its new ‘Project Fresh’ store in south Kerry.

The development in Cahersiveen, which will involve a €5.1 million investment from Aldi, will bring up to 80 jobs to the local area during its construction, with an estimated 20 permanent positions being made available once the store is opened in August 2021.

Planning permission for its construction was recently granted by Kerry County Council. Located at Abbey Place, the new 1,140sqm store is part of Aldi’s €160m investment in its Irish store network.

Aldi has committed €100m to constructing and opening 20 new stores, while Project Fresh sees Aldi invest a further €60m in revamping the layout and design of all of its 139 stores nationwide.

The new store will be powered by 100% green electricity and will also provide 72 free car parking spaces for customers.

Commenting, Adam Ward, Managing Director of Aldi Mitchelstown Region said: “Kerry County Council’s decision is great news for Cahersiveen shoppers. The new store will bring greater choice, quality and value to the local community.”

“The new store will become our eighth in Co. Kerry. Up until now, customers’ closest Aldi was 40km away in Killorglin. There has been great local support for an Aldi store in Cahersiveen and we are excited to be in the town.”
