Lidl Opens its Largest Distribution Center in Great Britain


NORTH LANARKSHIRE, SCOTLAND
Friday, October 11th, 2019

After acquiring smaller retail chains and implementing plans to open 25 new stores in targeted markets across the East Coast, Lidl has set itself up as a big retail name in the U.S. But what about the grocer’s overseas expansion? Well it looks like Scotland will be feeling some Lidl love; the company has officially opened its largest distribution center ever, in North Lanarkshire, Scotland.

The new 630,000-square-foot warehouse is set to service the retailer’s 99 stores throughout Scotland. This is not the first time that Lidl has pushed further into Scotland’s retail space, as it has announced plans to open 12 additional stores in Scotland over the next three years, according to BBC News.

The company commented that the new facility is "a pivotal moment in our ambitious growth plans across Scotland.” And while an estimated 600 current employees have relocated to the area, the company claims there is "scope for a further 250 jobs."

Lidl is not the only retailer making investments in this sort of mega-distribution center, as H-E-B, Amazon, Publix, and more are constructing their own gargantuan facilities.

As more giant warehouses keep popping up, will the industry shift toward micro-facilities? Deli Market News will keep you updated.
