Lidl set to open its SIXTH Sheffield store as supermarket giant confirms opening date
Lidl GB has confirmed that its new supermarket on Stannington Road in Malin Bridge, Sheffield, will open for the first time on Thursday, June 17.
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 Kids' Nerf Skate Helmet on Thursday 17th June (£4.99), a Dog Pool on Friday 18th June (£19.99) and a Sharp 24 inch Smart TV + DVD Player on Saturday 19th June (£59.00).
Part of the company’s ongoing £1.3bn expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain for 2021 and 2022, the store will create around 40 new jobs for the local community.
It will feature a 1,325m² sales area, an in-store bakery, customer toilets and ample parking for both cars and bicycles. The store will also provide 10 car parking spaces for Malin Bridge Bupa Dental Care.
The new store will be providing surplus produce and customer donations to a number of local charities, including Sharehouse Food Works Sheffield, FiveTwoSupplies, An Even Better Arbourthorne and Hope City Foundation, who all redistribute food to help feed everyone in the local community.
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.
A spokesperson for Lidl GB, commented: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Sheffield. It is fantastic that we are able to open our sixth store in Sheffield and enable even more of the local community access to our multi-award winning products. We are delighted to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area and look forward to welcoming everyone to our new store.”
