Aldi have announced plans to open a new 'Project Fresh' store in Cahersiveen as part of its €160m Irish store network investment programme.

The supermarket chain reached an agreement to purchase a site at Abbey Place and hopes to develop the 1,140sqm proposed store.

An estimated 20 new jobs will be created and the store will be powered by 100% green electricity. In addition, it would provide 72 free car parking spaces.

The planning application was submitted February 1, 2019 and the chain hopes to open next year.
