LIDL has today published a press release calling on the public to help locate sites for new stores.
The german supermarket, which is investing £1.3 billion in its expansion across 2021 and 2022, has revealed that it will be offering a finder’s fee to anyone who identifies suitable sites for new Lidl stores.
The news comes as the supermarket chain has published its annual list of locations across the country where it is interested in acquiring sites for potential store developments.
And Nailsworth is on the list.
Richard Taylor, Chief Development Officer at Lidl GB, said: “We know that the majority of British shoppers still love doing their shopping in person and we are as committed as ever to opening new stores and enhancing our existing ones.
“We’re opening an average of one new store a week, which is incredible, and our teams have done a phenomenal job of keeping that pace going over the last couple of years.
“But there are still communities up and down the country that are telling us how much they want – and need – a Lidl store.
“We work with some of the best people in the industry to identify new sites, but we also know how engaged our future and existing customers are and we want to build on this.
“Our finder’s fees are, therefore, available to absolutely anyone that can identify a viable option for a new store that we’re not already aware of, and we welcome any suitable suggestions that will help up us to meet our ambitious target of 1,100 stores by the end of 2025.”
