Planning permission granted for a new Lidl store in Lusk is set to see an €11 million investment in the local area and the creation of 35 permanent new jobs, the supermarket giant has stated.

The development, recently approved by An Bord Pleanála, will see the creation of 35 permanent new jobs and 100 more indirectly over the course of the construction period.

The site sits in a prime location in the newly developed Lusk Village Quarter which will also contain multiple shops, cafés, a creche, public square, playground and 150 new family homes.

Speaking of the new store in Lusk, Kevin Duffy, Regional Portfolio & Facilities Executive, Lidl Ireland said: 'We welcome the decision from An Bord Plenála on our proposed site in Lusk, and are eager to support the local community with significant investment, job creation and the highest quality at the best prices when we begin trading.

'We have been blown away by the local community support for this store and we are looking forward to welcoming our new customers in Autumn 2021.'

The design of the planned store has been tailored to keep in line with existing surrounding businesses on the site.

The store will also incorporate a range of sustainability features including a certified Energy Management System, high performing energy efficient technologies, on-site electric vehicle charger spaces and the installation of highly efficient solar panels.

It will also offer the retailer's growing customer base a superior shopping experience with a spacious interior layout, high ceilings and wide aisles creating a comfortable shopping experience for customers.

Lidl Ireland employs 4,500 employees in its 163 stores, Head Office in Tallaght and three distribution centres and regional offices based in Charleville, Mullingar and Newbridge.
