Creating 15 new permanent retail jobs in addition to the retailer’s existing 35-strong team, the new store in the heart of the city centre replaces the former site at Bagenal’s Castle on Abbey Way.
The new store occupies a space of 2,190 sq metres, including a sales floor of almost 1,400 sq metres.
It also features two electric vehicle charger spaces within its 105-space car park, enabling customers to charge their electric vehicles whilst they shop.
Justin Ford, store manager, Lidl Buttercrane, said: “I’m delighted to finally unveil Newry’s new-look Lidl Northern Ireland store and welcome shoppers to enjoy the new facilities.
“Buttercrane Shopping Centre is one of Northern Ireland’s premier city centre retail destinations and I’m really proud to provide a modern, state-of-the-art shopping experience for our customers and to welcome 15 new staff members to our team to serve this thriving community.”
