Lidl US Details Plans to Open 25 New Stores

Friday, May 17th, 2019

By the spring of 2020, the East Coast is going to be Lidl-fied. The discount retailer announced that it will be opening a spate of stores in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. In total, it plans to open 25 new stores.

Johannes Fieber, CEO, Lidl US“We are committed to long-term growth in the United States and always strive to locate in the most convenient locations for our shoppers,” said Johannes Fieber, CEO of Lidl US. “These new stores are part of the next steps in our U.S. expansion. Over the next year, we are excited to introduce more customers to Lidl’s award-winning quality, reliably low prices, and convenient shopping experience.”

By the end of next year, a press release noted, Lidl expects to sell its award-winning products in more than 100 stores and create more than 1,000 new jobs across nine states. As part of this move to operate in the most convenient locations, Lidl will also close two stores in Rockingham and Kinston, North Carolina, this summer. All employees there will be given the opportunity to relocate and work at other stores within Lidl’s growing markets. Earlier this week, Lidl also announced it will hold a hiring event to fill around 100 new positions at its regional headquarters and distribution center in Alamance County, North Carolina.
