A Lidl more planned

Expansion: Lidl has its eyes on more than 50 potential sites in Scotland.

NEW store and relocation sites are on Lidl’s shopping list as the discounter continues to expand in Scotland.

More than 50 potential sites, stretching from Kirkwall to Stranraer, are among those being looked at.

The list includes town centre, edge of centre, retail park and metropolitan locations as Lidl GB aims to have to have 1,000 stores throughout Great Britain by the end of 2023.

Regional director for Scotland, Ross Millar, explained: “We want to continue to reach more shoppers across Scotland and our site requirements brochure is a testament of that.

“There are towns that will be new for Lidl and in some places, the potential to even double our sites.”

“Each new store will have produce from over 60 Scottish suppliers.”

As part of its ongoing plans, Lidl will invest £1.3bn in its store expansion across Great Britain over 2021 and 2022.
