By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Lidl, Germany’s discount grocery chain, is in the process of building out their first US headquarter in Arlington, Va, and once it is ready, the company is expected to make a huge push in shaking up the grocery scene with rival Aldi and Walmart clearly in sight.

The company has kept quiet on the exact timeline and store locations, but it is believed that more than 100 stores will begin opening along the east coast in 2018. The question about where these exact stores are has left many wondering, but thanks to Planned Grocery, a newly developed app, we may finally have some answers.

Planned Grocery gathers information from local news reports and commercial real estate records to find the latest store developments, Lidl being one of them, and right now there are 83 locations believed to be in development.
