Aldi opens two new stores, bring total outlets to 126

Supermarket chain Aldi is creating 29 new jobs with the opening of two new stores.

The new shops are in Bandon Co Cork and Mullingar, Co Westmeath.

It brings the total number of Aldi stores in Ireland to 126. The new Bandon store is Aldi’s 20th store in Co Cork, whilst the new Mullingar store is Aldi’s third in Westmeath.

The first Aldi store in Ireland opened in November 1999.

Aldi said that in the last five years, it had recruited more than 70 new Irish suppliers, meaning Aldi now partners with more than 175 Irish producers.

More than 50% of Aldi’s supplier spend is now with Irish suppliers, producers and manufacturers. All of Aldi’s fresh meats, fresh poultry, eggs, bread, flour, and many of its teas, coffees, soft drinks, waters and snacks are provided by Irish suppliers.
