Lidl Corbally had its official opening and the modern, environmentally friendly new build has created 30 new jobs in the area.

After much anticipation, Lidl Ireland is delighted to announce the opening of its brand-new store in Corbally, County Clare next, Thursday, August 19. While the new state-of-the-art store brings Lidl’s renowned range of top-quality products at market leading prices to the people of Corbally, it also creates 30 permanent jobs with the retailer as well as having supported a further 75 construction jobs throughout the development phase.

As Lidl is Ireland’s leading supporter of female participation in sport through its partnership with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association, and with the store sitting right on the Limerick and Clare border, it is only fitting that the store will be opened by the Limerick and Clare football captains, Caoimhe Harvey and Niamh McCarthy. 

Alongside Lidl’s new bright and airy 1199m2 store, with a spacious interior layout, high ceilings and wide aisles creating a comfortable shopping experience for customers, the development also includes an onsite café, 1930, which is run by a new local business. The modern store also incorporates a large bakery area with freshly baked breads and pastries, one of Lidl’s most popular features.

While maintaining its status as the most affordable place to shop, Lidl also continues to pioneer in the area of sustainability. Lidl Corbally is an excellent example of Lidl’s leadership in the sustainable building field with the store using only renewable electricity as part of its 50001 ISO certified energy management system, providing free EV charging points to customers and the installation of solar panels.

Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Lidl has donated more than 75,000 meals to local Clare and Limerick charities and community groups, helping to alleviate food poverty. Furthering its community-focused objectives under its “A Better Tomorrow” corporate social responsibility programme, and to mark the opening, Lidl Corbally will welcome representatives from local charity, Limerick Treaty Suicide Prevention, to accept a €1,000 donation chosen by the store team. 

Store Manager, Limerick local Shane Brosnan is eager to get going; “We are thrilled to be finally opening the doors in Corbally after delays due to COVID 19 national site shutdowns. This store is in a fantastic location, at the heart of a great community. This store is a brand-new build which will serve the local area with top quality products at the best possible prices. We are delighted to also welcome a new local business, the 1930 café, to our site. It will be the perfect place to pop in for a coffee after your shop!”
