Sligo County Council has granted planning permission for the development of new store in Tubbercurry.
The project includes an investment of €6 million in the locality and will create 35 new permanent jobs and support 80 more through the construction phase.
Lidl Ireland welcomes this decision and hope to progress with this development as soon as possible.
Lidl’s proposed plans for the new location on Circular Road are set to incorporate a range of sustainability features including an ISO 50001 certified Energy Management System, electric vehicle charger spaces, and a solar panel system.
It will also offer the retailer’s growing customer base in the county a superior shopping experience with a spacious interior layout, high ceilings and wide aisles.
Lidl Ireland Property Executive, Brian Smyth, commented:
“We are very excited about the potential of this new store for Tubbercurry. At Lidl, we value our relationships and connections with our customers.
“We have had a long-standing desire to offer a superior shopping experience to the vibrant and thriving community of Tubbercurry.
“We believe the development of this new state-of-the-art store will bring significant local investment, new jobs and market leading value and quality to the local community.
“ Subject to receipt of a final grant from Sligo County Council, we look forward to starting work on the detailed design as soon as possible, with a view to start construction in the not too distant future.
Lidl Ireland employs over 5,000 employees in its 212 stores, Head Office in Tallaght and three distribution centres and regional offices based in Charleville, Mullingar, and Newbridge.
