Opening date announced for Lidl branch looted and demolished during Storm Emma

The supermarket was broken into and looted in March of this year.

Lidl on Fortunestown Lane in Citywest, County Dublin was attacked with a JCB in the midst of Storm Emma earlier this year.

Shocking scenes showed the store being looted before it eventually collapsed to the ground.

Armed Gardaí were called to the scene to investigate the incident and ultimately nine men were arrested.

In a statement, Lidl said the west Dublin branch of the German discount supermarket chain would open August 30.

They said they looked forward to welcoming back their loyal customers: "The store team that were redeployed to other stores in the area following the incident in March look forward to returning to the new store in August and welcoming back valued customers in the local community who have been extremely supportive over the last few months."
