Lidl Oranmore to reopen tomorrow after €2m makeover

Galway Daily news Green light for new Lidl supermarket in Moycullen

Lidl Oranmore will reopen its doors tomorrow morning after being closed for a month while the shop was getting a makeover.

Lidl pumped €2 million into upgrading the store, increasing the size of the shop floor and its popular bakery area.

The ceiling grid has also been lifted to allow for a more spacious feel in store.

The entrance area has been remodelled with the old pod being removed and there has been new fridges and tills installed.

The reinvestment in the store has resulted in six new roles being recruited to support the existing team of 23.

Managing the store reopening is Lidl veteran Pauline McLoughlin, who has been managing Lidl stores in the Galway for 13 years.

She said they are beyond delighted to finally be able to reopen the store in Oranmore.

“The team have worked exceptionally hard to give the store a face lift,” said Pauline.

“Our bakery area has expanded which I am sure will be welcome news to our regular shoppers who enjoy their freshly baked bread and treats.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back on the 8th.”

To mark the reopening of the store, the Lidl staff have chosen to donate €500 in Lidl vouchers to Oranmore Coastal Rescue Unit.

The Oranmore Coastal Rescue Unit was set up in 2016 after a NUI Galway student went missing in 2015 and Oranmore became the central search location.

It is all volunteer led with all funds going towards purchase of equipment and training of leaders.
