Lidl GB has announced that it is suitable for works for its new supermarket on Sevenoaks Way, in St. Mary’s Cray, and the construction of the extension to the existing store on Aberconway Road in Morden has now begun.
As part of Lidl’s continued expansion plans in the UK, both stores represent multi-million pound investments for local economies and will create around 40 new roles for the community.
In collaboration with construction company PCA, the final work in the new store in St.Mary’s Cray is expected to take about three months with a view to opening early next year. The store will have a sales area of 1,172m² and has facilities, including a shop bakery and parking for both cars and bicycles.
The popular store in Morden needs to be extended to deliver even more of Lidl’s products to local residents. In continuation of the construction company Sturminster, the extension is expected to take four months and the total sales area will increase to 1,497 m². The store will remain open during the entire construction work, so that residents can continue to shop in the store and gain access to Lidl’s fresh, quality and affordable products. Once completed, the store will offer a wider range of products that ensure the local community has access to all of their favorite Lidl products and more.
Lidl GB’s regional property manager, Henry Neel, commented: “We are committed to bringing our much-loved products to even more residents in south London and are delighted to be entering the next stages of development for both of these stores. We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received so far and we would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we enter this next phase. ”
The new supermarket is part of the company’s ongoing investment of DKK 1.3 billion. Pounds across the country in 2021 and 2022. Its continued success shows no signs of slowing, with the latest results from the Kantar Worldpanel highlighting Lidl’s year-on-year increase in sales and a market share of 6.1%.
