Lidl Ireland’s Greystones store will undergo a €12 million revamp this year, the retailer has officially confirmed.
The store, which is located in Blacklion Centre, is scheduled to close this month to facilitate the building works and will likely reopen towards the end of the year.
The German discount retailer confirmed the news and said the existing store would be demolished and a brand new supermarket would be constructed on the same plot.
“We can confirm the Lidl Greystones store will be undergoing an extensive construction project this year,” a spokesperson said.
“The project will consist of a knock and rebuild of the existing store that will represent an investment of more than €12 million to the locality – creating new jobs at the store and up to 100 through the construction phase. The store is due to close in May, with the new store anticipated to re-open towards the end of the year.”
Earlier this year Lidl’s Wicklow store reopened to customers after a similar project was completed.
