Construction work has begun on a €7 million new Aldi supermarket for Mountbellew, which is expected to open next year.
The new Aldi supermarket on College Road is expected to create 30 permanent new jobs for the area when it opens.
The store is part of a larger development being built by Galway-based Cahermorris Developments which includes a filling station and residential development.
Commenting, Colin Breslin, Aldi Regional Managing Director said, “We are delighted to break ground at the site of our new Mountbellew store and we can’t wait to bring our amazing range of groceries to even more customers.”
“The store will also provide further opportunities for local food and drink producers to work with Aldi. Last year, we sourced €28 million of locally produced food and drink from our Co. Galway based suppliers.”
The 1,315sqm supermarket will be 100% powered by renewable energy, and include four electric vehicle charging points, out of 120 total car parking spaces and 10 bike spaces.
Aldi currently operate nine stores in County Galway and have recently received planning permission for a store on Old Monivea Road, Ballybrit opening in Autumn 2023.
