The German retail giant has gutted its Bank Place premises as it intends to replace it with a bigger store.
A Tipperary Garda Station spokesman said rubbish in the interior of the shell of the building was set on fire between 9pm and 10pm on Sunday.
Fire fighters from Tipperary Fire Station attended the scene of the fire and brought it under control.
The garda spokesman appealed to anyone with information on the fire to contact Tipperary Garda Station at (062) 51212.
