Aldi seeks planning permission for new Limerick and Shannon Stores
Grocer Aldi is seeking planing permission for two new stores in Shannon and the city of Limerick.
According to the planning applications, the proposed supermarket on Roches Street in Limerick would be 2,460 square metres and be powered entirely by renewable electricity. There will be 85 parking spaces for customers and Aldi will also provide three free-to-use electric vehicle charging points.
If approved, the project would create 100 construction jobs followed by 25 full-time staff jobs in the store.
A new 1,315 square metre supermarket is planned for Shannon, and would see the creation of 80 construction jobs and 20 full time jobs.
Aldi published a public opinion survey alongside its planning application to claim strong local support for a fourth outlet. It found 87% would like to see an Aldi at the location, 89% would shop there, and 90% said it would boost competition and better-value grocery options locally.
