Lidl to Open Its First Alabama Location


DECATUR, AL
Thursday, September 14th, 2017

As the retailer continues to expand across the United States, Lidl US has confirmed that it is planning to enter the state of Alabama—with a new store coming to the city of Decatur. According to a local news source AL.com, Aldi’s new location in Morgan County will be the first in the state.

Mayor Tab Bowling announced the planned location Wednesday night via Facebook in an enthusiastic post.

Tab Bowling, Mayor, Decatur, Alabama“Decatur will soon be home to Alabama's First Lidl US Grocery Store. Lidl 'rethink grocery' promotes a less complicated process that allows them to simply deliver low prices, high-quality, and the best shopping experience for their customers,” Bowling noted. “The location is Beltline and Glenn St. which means new opportunities for Hwy 20 and Calvary Assembly! The ripple effect is tremendous for Decatur.”

Local news source The Decatur Daily confirmed the announcement with the city’s Development Director Wally Terry.

Lidl has been making steady progress throughout the southern U.S. since the company entered the U.S. in June of this year. In addition to opening locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, the company has opened distribution centers and regional headquarters in Maryland and Georgia, and bolstered its real estate team by hiring an experienced Senior Director of Real Estate.

Where will the disruptive retailer move next? Deli Market News will continue to report.
