Fears new Aldi in Cashel will damage local economy

Businesses in Cashel currently fear the arrival of Aldi Cashel could seriously harm the economic development of the town centre. Aldi would potentially become the second discount food store in Cashel, joining market rival Lidl.

Aldi have secured planning permission for the development of their new store, however Aldi are currently facing opposition to the development.


There is also some skepticism regarding the potential amount of people employed when the store opens given the amount of people who work in smaller shops in Cashel who may lose their jobs as a result.
