Aldi reopens its Carrick on Suir store.
Aldi’s Carrick-on-Suir “Project Fresh” store has reopened its doors to customers following an extensive renovation project which has seen the store completely refurbished as part of Aldi’s €160m investment in its Irish store network.
Aldi has committed €100m to constructing and opening 20 new stores by the end of 2019, while Project Fresh sees Aldi invest a further €60m in revamping the layout and design of all of its 133 stores nationwide.
The newly refurbished store has received a full makeover in line with Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh store design. Aldi’s Project Fresh store layout was recognised at the 2017 Checkout National Retail Supplier Awards, by scooping the Best New Store Build award for Aldi’s Ennistymon store, one of Aldi’s first Project Fresh stores.
Featuring the exciting new layout, Aldi’s Carrick-on-Suir store now offers almost 20% more fridge space, a wide selection of fresh food at the front of the store, hi-spec fixtures and fittings and new signage that provides a more efficient and hassle-free shopping experience. 108 free car parking spaces are also available for customers.
Since first opening its Carrick-on-Suir store in October 2007, Aldi has become an established part of the local retail landscape, proving very popular with local shoppers for bringing greater competition, choice and value for money to Carrick-on-Suir.
The store participates in Aldi’s national partnership with FoodCloud, donating surplus food to local charities daily, including Clonmel Soup Kitchen and Journeyman Programme. The store has donated over 18,000 meals to charity to date.
Speaking at the reopening, Leanne Carberry, Store Manager at Aldi’s Carrick-on-Suir store said: “Following extensive refurbishment work we are delighted to have reopened our new Project Fresh store. The whole Aldi team is looking forward to welcoming customers from the locality, both existing and new. We are confident our customers will find the new store provides a more enjoyable and spacious shopping experience.”
