Theo Horan, nephew of One Direction star Niall Horan, was the guest of honour at the opening of the new Lidl store in Mullingar this morning (Thursday 11th December). The new store, located on Patrick Street, Mullingar, is the second Irish store the retailer has opened this week, bringing the total number of Lidl stores in Ireland to 143 and the number of employees to over 3,900.
The addition of the two new stores, located in Omni, Santry and on Patrick Street, Mullingar, has seen the creation of 63 new positions across both localities. Each store boasts a new look, ultra-modern design and an innovative new baking facility which will turn out affordable, artisan breads from the minute the store opens until it closes at night. Opening celebrations at both stores include special offers on both food and non-food products like 25% off fruit and vegetables; in-store sampling of a range of delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas and a visit from Lidl brand ambassador and star of RTE’s Taste of Success, Paul Flynn
