Lidl to outline plans for Dunboyne store

Lidl Ireland will outline its plans to build a store in Dunboyne at a virtual community briefing session next week.

The supermarket retailer will hold the virtual community briefing session at 6.30pm on Tuesday, 25th January, to brief local residents, community leaders and stakeholders on its plans for the store on Dunboyne's Main Street, adjacent to St Peter and Paul's Church.

During the briefing Brian Smyth, Regional Property Executive, and Damien Ryan, Regional Property Manager for Lidl Ireland along with members of the design team, will outline the retailer’s proposed plans for a new store in Dunboyne that is set to include a spacious sales floor, a café and retail unit, a carpark with EV charging points for customers, and solar panels.

Local councillors will also be accompanying the Lidl team to answer any relevant questions. Lidl says the development will bring up to €12 million in local investment to the community, as well as creating 30 new jobs at the store and 100 during construction and development states.

The plans have been designed to contribute positively to the local area and will also incorporate a range of sustainability features including the highly successful and innovative Deposit Return Scheme, which Lidl introduced to their Glenageary store in September 2021. This is essentially a reverse vending machine for plastic bottles and aluminium cans.

Lidl is calling on local residents to submit their questions and feedback on the proposed store ahead of the briefing session via a dedicated page

Brian Smyth, Regional Property Executive for Lidl Ireland commented: “We are delighted to host this briefing session for local residents and stakeholders and are eager to receive feedback on our plans for a new, state-of-the-art store in Dunboyne. We hope to bring significant local investment, new jobs and our market leading quality and value to the Dunboyne community for many years to come.”
