Lidl to Open Second Wave of Long Island Stores

Lidl to Open Second Wave of Long Island Stores

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

This summer, Lidl made public its plans for aggressive expansion of 25 new stores across the East Coast, but now the retailer has announced another wave of stores in one specific region—Long Island. The expansion is set to take place by next summer and will bring four more stores to the area.

Johannes Fieber, CEO, Lidl US“We appreciate all the support we have received across Long Island as we prepare to open our first Lidl food markets in the region,” said Johannes Fieber, President and CEO. “Our teams are working hard to get ready and cannot wait to introduce shoppers to Lidl’s award-winning shopping experience. Lidl food markets will bring fresh choices, convenient shopping, and bigger savings to shoppers across Long Island.”

Shoppers in Oakdale, East Meadow, Lake Grove, and Patchogue will be among the first to experience Lidl’s simple and efficient approach to grocery shopping and its price-cutting effect in the region, according to the press release. The planned expansion will bring the total number of Lidl food markets to be opened in the region to eight, including stores in W.Babylon, Plainview, Center Moriches, and Huntington, which will open by early next year. As part of the transition, Lidl will remodel Best Market stores currently located in the four communities.

Following its 25-store East Coast expansion, Lidl has plans to grow its presence in the Long Island market as well

Phil Boyle, Senator, New York“I am excited for Lidl’s expansion to Long Island,” said New York State Senator Phil Boyle. “Lidl will provide excellent customer service and great savings. From its philanthropic work to its commitment to employees, I proudly welcome Lidl to our community."

Lidl recently announced that all employees working at the new Lidl stores in Nassau and Suffolk counties will receive full medical benefits regardless of the number of hours they work per week.

Andrew Garbarino, State Assemblyman, New York“I am pleased to welcome Lidl into our community,” said New York State Assemblyman Andrew Garbarino. “Lidl has established a unique approach to grocery that will enhance the experience for Long Islanders. With an attractive store model and streamlined processes, Lidl will bring efficiency for shoppers and greater wages and benefits to its team members.”
