Sligo County Council has granted a building permit for the development of a new store in Tubbercurry.
The project includes an investment of 6 million euros in the locality and will create 35 new permanent jobs and support 80 others during the construction phase.
Lidl Ireland welcomes this decision and looks forward to making progress in this development as soon as possible.
Lidl’s proposed plans for the new Circular Road location are expected to incorporate a range of sustainability features, including an ISO 50001 certified energy management system, electric vehicle charging spaces and a solar panel system.
It will also provide the retailer’s growing customer base in the county with a superior shopping experience with spacious interiors, high ceilings and wide aisles.
Brian Smyth, Property Manager at Lidl Ireland, said:
“We are very excited about the potential of this new store for Tubbercurry. At Lidl, we value our relationships and relationships with our customers.
“We have long had a desire to provide a superior shopping experience to the vibrant and thriving community of Tubbercurry.
“We believe that the development of this new state-of-the-art store will bring significant local investment, new jobs and top-notch value and quality to the local community.
“Subject to receiving a final grant from Sligo County Council, we look forward to starting detailed design work as soon as possible, with a view to starting construction in the not too distant future.
Lidl Ireland employs more than 5,000 people in its 212 stores, its head office in Tallaght and three distribution centers and regional offices based in Charleville, Mullingar and Newbridge.
