It has only been a few days since Lidl, Germany’s wildly successful grocery chains, opened their doors for the first time in the U.S., but as it readies the next wave of stores on July 13, the company announced that it has already outgrown its current headquarter in Virginia and is ready to build out its next chapter in Georgia.

“Since opening our doors two weeks ago, we have begun the journey of serving our customers with top quality products at the best possible prices every single day,” Brendan Proctor, President and CEO of Lidl U.S. said in a statement announcing the upcoming retail expansion. “We are excited to announce today that we will be bringing the Lidl experience to even more communities in Virginia and North Carolina in a few short weeks.

The four new stores opening on July 13 will be in Chesapeake, VA (4033 Portsmouth Blvd), Culpeper, VA (15169 Brandy Rd), Havelock, NC (547 US Hwy 70 West) and Wake Forest, NC (1120 South Main St).

Lidl has been showing that they are committed to fighting their way to the top, and their announcement of outgrowing their brand new headquarters and distribution center is a sign that they are operating at full speed.

“We are excited to announce new growth and investment in our U.S. expansion” Proctor said while announcing a $100 million regional headquarter and distribution center in Cartersville, Georgia. “Our Cartersville facility will help us efficiently deliver top quality goods to our future customers throughout the area.”
