For those eager to set foot into Germany’s wildly popular discount grocer, Lidl, the wait is almost over as the company has officially announced the grand opening of its first nine U.S. stores on June 15.
“We cannot wait to open our first U.S. stores and introduce customers to grocery shopping refreshed, retooled and rethought to make life better,” said Brendan Proctor, President and CEO of Lidl US. “Every day in our stores, customers will enjoy the smell of Lidl’s freshly baked breads, a selection of sustainable products like our certified fresh and frozen fish, and top-quality wines from around the world available at market-beating prices. Our mission every day is to deliver our customers less complexity, lower prices, better choices, and greater confidence.”
