Newly revamped Ashbourne Aldi reopens
Aldi Ashbourne has reopened its doors to customers following an extensive renovation project, which has seen the store completely refurbished.
The retailers 'Project Fresh' has seen an investment of €60million in revamping the layout and design of all of its 145 stores nationwide.
Niall Daly, Ashbourne Store Manager said: “The Project Fresh revamp of our store is great news for our local customers in Ashbourne. Its new spacious design makes for a very easy and enjoyable shop.”
“Our commitment to our Meath customers is we will never be beaten on price and will always provide the best value."
The company says it is committed to growing its Irish supply base and increasing the number of Irish products available in its stores. It has invested more than €3,000,000 in its Grow with Aldi supplier development programme since 2018, which offers up-and-coming artisan Irish food and drink producers the chance to have their products listed in Aldi’s 145 stores.
In 2020, Aldi sourced over €50 million of locally produced food and drink from Meath based suppliers, partnering with 12 Meath producers, and last year began working with four new suppliers in the county.
The newly revamped Ashbourne store participates in Aldi’s national partnership with FoodCloud, donating surplus food to local charities daily. The store has donated 1,787 meals to its charity partners to date and is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with Blood Bikes East just one of several charities availing of the €500 bursary grant last year.
Operating six stores in Meath, Aldi employs 186 full time staff in Meath, spending €7.8million on wages annually. It is seeking to recruit 65 new employees for its Meath stores this year. Opportunities available include 34 permanent positions.
