Today, Lidl opened the doors to its largest store in Scotland on Edinburgh’s West Granton Road.
Originally opened in 1995, the West Granton Road store was Lidl’s original and first Edinburgh site and has undergone a significant extension and refurbishment. The new expansion has increased the sales area to 1438m² making it the retailer’s largest store in Scotland.
Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Gordon Rafferty, commented: “Today is a significant milestone for us here at Lidl. Opening the doors after an extension, to showcase our largest store in Scotland represents our commitment to continuing to invest and expand across the country.
“The store will bring even more great products and fantastic offers to Edinburgh residents as well as showcasing some of the incredible Scottish produce we stock throughout the year.”
During the first week of opening customers will find exclusive deals and offers on selected products including a Vileda vacuum cleaning robot (£49.99, available Saturday, 10 October) and a Toshiba 43” full HD smart TV (£129.00, available Saturday, 10 October), and a Silvercrest stand mixer (£19.99, available Friday, 9 October).
The new supermarket forms part of the company’s £1.45bn investment in its expansion across Great Britain in 2019 and 2020. Lidl is proud to now have over 100 stores in Scotland and, with the opening of a new Retail Distribution Centre in Motherwell in late 2019, Lidl’s success shows no signs of slowing.
