Lidl Ireland have announced that a second store for Tullamore is scheduled to open in Summer 2019.
Construction of the new store which will be located on Church Road, will commence before the end of this year, following the recent withdrawal of an appeal to An Bord Pleanála concerning the development.
The new store, will create 20 new permanent jobs and many more during the construction phase.
The multimillion euro investment in the town will see the regeneration of the old Tullamore Hardware unit and surrounding yard that was once the site of the old bacon factory.
