Supermarkets Open Now

The first Lidl GB store opened its doors in 1994 and 29 years later, we now have more than 960 stores and 14 regional distribution centres across Britain, employing over 31,000 people.

We take great pride in providing our customers with the highest quality products at the lowest possible prices and work closely with our suppliers to make this possible. We’re also passionate about sourcing locally where possible and more than two thirds of our products are sourced from British suppliers.
