The business confirms the opening date of the newest Lidl in Nottinghamshire.
Lidl GB has confirmed that its new supermarket on Beechdale Road, Nottingham, will open its doors for the first time on Thursday 1st October at 8am.
The store opening times will be between 8am – 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am – 4pm on Sunday, delivering Lidl’s offering of fresh, quality and great value produce. During the first week of opening customers will be able to find exclusive deals and offers on selected products including a Playtive Junior Animal Rocker (£14.99), a Parkside Bandsaw (£49.99) and a Silvercrest Bread Maker (£29.99).
The new store will also be providing surplus food and customer donations to The Square Meal, who use donations to deliver food parcels to the most vulnerable in the area and Broxtowe Labour Community Hub Food Bank, who use donated food to alleviate food poverty and social isolation across the constituency of Broxtowe. This is delivered through Lidl’s Feed it Back scheme, which is run in partnership with Neighbourly and connects Lidl stores up and down the country with local charities, foodbanks, community cafes and kitchens, putting quality food surplus to good use every day.
Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Dominic Bryan, commented: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Nottingham. It is great for us to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area, and we can’t wait to start serving our multi-award winning products to the local community.”
The new supermarket forms part of the company’s ongoing expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain and has created around 40 new jobs for the local community. The store has a 1,410m² sales area and features facilities such as an in-store bakery, longer-style tills, customer toilets, baby changing and ample parking for both cars and bicycles.
As per government guidance, the wearing of face coverings in supermarkets is now mandatory across England. Lidl is also operating a range of social distancing measures to help maintain a safe store environment for both colleagues and customers. These include clear communication across the store, including floor markings, reminding customers of the importance of maintaining a two-metre distance from each other when shopping, along with regular tannoy announcements. Dedicated cleaning stations are also in place at store entrances, including hand sanitiser, disinfectant and wipes, for customer to use on their trolleys and baskets.
Additionally, the supermarket has installed protective screens at checkouts along with the protective visors and masks for colleagues to wear if they wish, and is continuing to encourage customers to pay by contactless payment methods where possible.
