The former Chadwick’s property on Queen Street has lain idle for over a decade.
The adjoining property – which is currently occupied by the Nationalist Newspaper – has also been purchased by the German retailer.
Local County Councillor Michael Murphy says it’s a huge vote of confidence in Clonmel.
“Over the last 12 months I’ve been working closely with the owner of the Chadwick’s site and indeed the acquisition team of Lidl. So I can confirm that both sites have been purchased subject to planning permission.”
“Really, really good news in the context of the strategic location of both of these sites but also a vote of confidence by Lidl in Clonmel.”
