Lidl has withdrawn its planning application for a store in Claremorris.
Last Summer, the supermarket chain applied for permission to construct a new foodstore at Kilcolman Road in Claremorris, and said the development would create 25 fulltime jobs.
A request was subsequently made for further information, which the company responded to in December.
A decision was due in the past week in relation to the planning application, but Lidl has withdrawn its application.
A spokesperson for the company has confirmed to Midwest News that Lidl has withdrawn its planning application for Claremorris, but said they remain committed to continuing their ambitious expansion strategy.
