Lidl making major moves on the East Coast

As part of its ongoing expansion along the East Coast, Lidl US announced today plans to open 25 new stores in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia by spring of 2020. 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, NC.

By the end of next year, Lidl expects to sell its award-winning products in more than 100 stores and create more than 1,000 new jobs across nine states.

“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, chief executive officer 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.”

As part of this move to operate in the most convenient locations, Lidl will also close two stores in Rockingham and Kinston, NC, this summer. All employees there will be given the opportunity to relocate and work at other stores within Lidl’s growing markets.
