Twenty new jobs as Aldi opens in Ballybofey


DISCOUNT giant Aldi opened its new store at Chestnut Road, Ballybofey, today creating 20 new full and part-time jobs in the process.

It brings to six, the number of stores they have in Donegal.

Speaking at the opening, store manager Mr Rasal Galezyka, said: “We are delighted to be opening our new Ballybofey store and look forward to welcoming many new customers from the local area. We will be offering our customers a carefully selected range of exclusive own label brands at very competitive prices. Our discounted prices are guaranteed week in, week out.”


A spokesperson for the German retailer said they are a proud supporter of Irish producers, and has tripled its annual spend on Irish products over the past five years, helping maintain over 22,000 jobs across the Irish food industry.

Suppliers from the local area include Mulrines of Ballybofey, which supplies fruit juices and Donegal Rapeseed Oil of Raphoe, which supplies Aldi’s Specially Selected Irish Rapeseed Oil.

“Since 2008, Aldi has almost doubled the number of Irish suppliers it works with. Over 50 per cent of Aldi’s supplier spend is with Irish suppliers, producers and manufacturers.

All of Aldi’s fresh meats, fresh poultry, eggs, bread, flour, and many of its teas, coffees, soft drinks, waters and snacks come from leading Irish suppliers,” the spokesperson said.
