ALDI's newest Mayo store opened this morning
ALDI’s nationwide expansion continues today with the opening of its new store in Ballyhaunis, creating 30 new permanent jobs.
Located at Upper Main Street, the store was officially opened today in the presence of the local team and store manager Charlene Kilgallon.
With six stores now in Mayo, ALDI has made a capital investment of over €43 million in Mayo since opening its first store in the county in Claremorris in 2007.
The retailer currently employs over 130 people in the county with a €3.2 million total annual salary spend across its six stores.
Speaking at the Ballyhaunis store opening, Charlene Kilgallon, store manager, said: “This new €7 million store in Ballyhaunis is the latest step in ALDI’s expansion programme and I’m delighted to open our sixth store in Mayo today.
"This new store, and the 30 new jobs created, will support our ambition to deliver value to the people of Ireland at the locations most convenient to them.
“As a leading retailer in Ireland, we are very conscious of the current challenges facing consumers and businesses. The cost-of-living crisis is impacting every household and we know what it means for our customers.
“Working alongside our strong network of local suppliers, we will continue to work hard, mindful of the challenges facing our customers and supporting them where we can.”
The spacious new 1317 sqm store features ALDI’s award winning Project Fresh layout and features wide aisles and hi-spec fixtures and fittings. Shoppers will also be able to make use of 94 car parking spaces and four electric vehicle charging spaces. As well as this, there are 10 bike parking spaces.
