Lidl puts finishing touches to fourth Gloucester shop
By Rob Freeman | 13th November 2020
A new Lidl store in Gloucester is being fitted out ahead of opening later this month.
The shop in Kingsway, developed by Robert Hitchins Ltd and occupied by the discount retailer on a long-term lease, is set to open on November 26.
Michael Plimmer, senior development manager for Boddington-based Robert Hitchins, said: "We are really pleased that, having only completed the construction of the development in late summer, Lidl has committed to open the store so quickly despite these challenging times.
"It is also a strong endorsement of the location and the opportunity to provide Kingsway residents with improved choice and variety for their weekly shop."
The new supermarket - Lidl's fourth in the city - has a 1,325sq m sales area and features an in-store bakery, customer toilet, electric vehicle rapid charging spaces and ample parking for cars and bicycles.
It forms part of the company's £1.45billion investment across Great Britain over the last two years.
Lidl GB's regional head of property Glen Stidever said: "There's been much anticipation for this new Lidl store and we are extremely grateful for all the support that we have received so far.
"We now look forward to opening our doors and serving our fresh, quality produce to the local community."
