THERE was a party atmosphere as German retailer, Aldi, re-opened its Castletroy store following the completion of major expansion and refurbishment works.
Located off the old Dublin Road, the newly refurbished store, which was closed for more than a fortnight to faciltate the completion of the works, includes 25% more shop floor space, a new trolley bay canopy and increased chilled space.
The car park has been completely resurfaced and can now cater for up to 138 vehicles.
Facilities for staff who work at the store have also been improved.
“We are delighted to reopen our new improved Castletroy store. The whole Aldi team is looking forward to welcoming customers from the locality, both existing and new,” said store manager Katriona Cross.
“The revamped store is much larger and we are confident that our customers will find it provides a more enjoyable and spacious shopping experience,” she added. Since first opening its Castletroy store in May 2007, Aldi has become an established part of Limerick’s retail landscape, proving very popular with local shoppers for offering greater competition as the supermarket sector was transformed in a short time.
Aldi, which has more than 120 stores across the country, also has a branch at Roxboro – adjacent to the Limerick Enterprise Development Park.
