Lidl in Mitchelstown has officially reopened today following a major refurbishment project.
The new Lidl store has undergone "extensive modernisation" works and will create four new jobs in the local community, bringing the total number of those employed at the Mitchelstown store to 21 and an investment of over €7.6 million to the local community.
Cork and Mitchelstown footballer Cathail O'Mahony joined Stephen Hegarty, Sales Operations Manager and Joe Moynihan, Store Manager, to officially open the store this morning.
The new 1,420-metre squared shop floor features larger aisles, higher ceilings and a bakery area with freshly baked breads and pastries.
The Mitchelstown store also has PV solar panels and includes improved car park facilities with enhanced car park lighting and additional disabled and parent and child parking spaces.
"We are beyond delighted to finally open the doors of our Mitchelstown store and welcome customers to experience the new features and the same great value," Lidl Mitchelstown Store Manager, Joe Moynihan said.
"We look forward to welcoming shoppers to the new state of the art store."
