Lidl set to open largest store in Scotland


Lidl is set to open their largest store in Scotland next week as part of the company’s £1.45 billion investment in its expansion across the UK.

On site of the first and original Lidl store in Edinburgh (on Granton Road) the fully refurbished and extended store will open its doors at 8am on Thursday, 8th October.

Despite undergoing an extension in 2014, Lidl decided to make the shop even bigger, now measuring 1,438m squared to meet the growing demand from new residents.

Customers will have access to popular amenities such as the bakery and middle-of-Lidl aisle and new displays features in chilled food sections.

Exclusive deals and offers on selected products will be available during the first week including a Vileda vacuum cleaning robot (£49.99), a Toshiba 43-inch full HD smart TV (£129.00) and a Silvercrest stand mixer (£19.99).

Commenting on the refurbishment, Lidl GB’s regional head of property, Gordon Rafferty, said: “There’s been much anticipation for this expansion to Lidl’s original Edinburgh store.

“We are extremely grateful for all the support that we have received over the years from the local community and would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the works.”

Lidl now has more than 100 stores in Scotland since opening in the country in 1995.
