Aldi has today opened a new store in Dunshaughlin in Co Meath as it continues its nationwide expansion.

The new Dunshaughlin shop will create 25 permanent jobs in the local area.

Located on Lagore Road close to the town centre, the store was officially opened by Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English.

The new store is Aldi's seventh to open in Co Meath. The supermarket group now has a total of 148 stores around the country with a workforce of over 4,500 people.

Aldi currently stocks over 1,800 products and works with over 330 Irish suppliers across Ireland.

It has also invested more than €3,000,000 in its Grow with Aldi supplier development programme since 2018, which provides an opportunity to Irish food and drink companies to gain a listing in its shops around the country.
