ALDI has announced plans for a second store in Ennis. Thirty new permanent jobs will be created at the store, while up to 50 jobs will be supported during the construction phase.
A planning application is being submitted today to Clare County Council and Aldi aims to open the 1,000sqm store at Westpoint Retail Park, on the Kilrush Road, in late 2023.
Commenting, Colin Breslin, Aldi Regional Managing Director said: “This is great news for Aldi shoppers in Ennis and the surrounding area. Our Francis Street store is one of our busiest and most popular stores in the country. We look forward to serving more Ennis shoppers with our award winning range of incredible value food and drink products.”
Aldi currently operates four stores in County Clare, with stores in Ennistymon, Killaloe, Kilrush and on Francis Street, Ennis. In 2020 the company says it sourced €2.8 million of locally produced food and drink from County Clare based suppliers.
