Lidl Just Opened Their First Stores in North Carolina


This past Thursday, German supermarket brand ‘Lidl’ opened their first 7 stores in the Carolinas, including in North Carolina’s Kinston, Greenville, Sanford, Rocky Mount and Winston-Salem, and South Carolina’s Spartanburg and Greenville.

Winston-Salem’s grand opening saw large crowds throughout the day;

Lidl now has several new stores under construction around the Charlotte area, including in South End, Rock Hill, and Mooresville. In total, the company plans to open at least 100 stores across the East Coast by the end of 2018, creating over 5,000 new jobs.

Most of the products that Lidl carries are private-label and, according to Lidl, about 50 percent lower than similar products at traditional grocery stores.

They offer a wide selection of organic, dairy-free, and gluten-free options, a unique wine selection, baked goods, and fresh produce.

In other US cities they’ve become a major competitor to both Aldis and Trader Joes.
