Aldi is looking to open stores in Shannon and Limerick as it continues its massive €160m expansion and refurbishment investment in its Irish operations.

The German ‘discount’ retailer expects to open its first shop in Shannon in the first quarter of 2023. 

A planning application for a 1,315 square metre store – along with an additional retail unit – close to the town centre, on Airport Road, has been submitted to Clare County Council. 

Aldi said the project will result in approximately 80 construction jobs and 20 permanent jobs when complete.

Aldi has also put in a planning application for a new store at Roches Street in the centre of Limerick city. 

The company said the plan – which would result in its fourth opening in the Limerick area – has already received overwhelming support from local consumers.

Aldi employs more than 4,000 people across 142 stores in the Republic. 

Its expansion and refurbishment programme - now in its third year - will see an additional nine stores open this year.
