Lidl to expand distribution for London stores

London, UK: Discount retailer Lidl is spending £500m over the next five years on its plans to expand its distribution as it adds more stores in London.

Plans include over 40 new stores, including one on Tottenham Court Road, as well as a new warehouse in Luton and the expansion of its Belvedere distribution centre which services Lidl stores in south London.

Lidl’s chief development officer Ingo Fischer, said: “We are incredibly excited about our plans to open a new Lidl store on Tottenham Court Road, right in the heart of London. This comes as a direct result of continued customer demand for the Lidl offering across the capital, and joins a pipeline of new stores planned for the near future.”

“These will be supported by our investment of our operations and infrastructure, including a new distribution centre near Luton, the expansion of our Belvedere warehouse and, of course, our new London HQ.”
 
Lidl opened its first stores in the UK in 1994. The supermarket currently has 760 stores and 13 warehouses in the country.
