Tesco lodges planning applications opposition against new Aldi stores.
Nothing to do with planning and everything to do with Tesco trying to stop competition. Disgraceful behavior by Tesco

Rightly so.
I know in Galway, there is a Dunnes, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl & Dealz within a 5 minute walk radius. The Tesco store has seen a marked decrease in custom.

Lidl to hire 600 staff as it continues to expand. Lidl accounts for 11.9% of grocery sales in the Ireland with 1.5m weekly customers.
Some of its newer stores in built-up locations may be hitched up to first floor level above easy-access car parks, after its research revealed many shoppers don’t like its underground car parks. Wonder what planner think of that one!

Probably significantly, cheaper to build as well, lower excavation costs & no need to "lose" a few thousand square metres of subsoil.

East Wall and the store currently under construction in Sallynoggin also have the first floor store above surface car park configuration. In most cases I doubt what is effectively a three storey building would be a problem on a constrained site in an already built-up urban location. The Sallynoggin application was initially refused and then granted on appeal to ABP and that was partially on grounds of the size and mass of the development but the Lidl store is not the largest building in it overall, the problem appears to have been the five storey block beside it.

Interesting that the last column is % change of value sales, rather than change of market share.
Aldi have a 6% increase in value of sales, does that mean that they've sneaked in more price increases than the others or just sold more?
