Discount Retail Chain Aldi Ireland’s (family owned) Ashbourne Project Fresh store has reopened its doors to customers following an extensive renovation project, which has seen the store completely refurbished.
The newly refurbished store has received a full makeover in line with Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh design, the discounter said. Featuring the new layout, the Ashbourne Store offers a wide selection of fresh food at the front of the store, hi-spec fixtures and fittings and new signage that provides a more efficient and hassle-free shopping experience. Speaking at the reopening, Niall Daly, Ashbourne store manager said, “The Project Fresh revamp of our store is great news for our local customers in Ashbourne. Its new spacious design makes for a very easy and enjoyable shop.”

Aldi has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind generated energy.
