The multi-million pound investment, will see Lidl commit to redeveloping a brownfield site to build a sustainable store with a 1,025m² sales area, with plans to create around 40 new full time and part time jobs. The supermarket will boast state of the art facilities such as an instore bakery, and 55 car parking spaces including 4 dedicated disabled spaces, 5 parent and child spaces and 2 electric vehicle charging points.
Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Colin Rimmer, commented: “We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a new Lidl in Rainham and serving our fresh, quality and incredibly good value produce which shoppers across the country have come to love.”
“Our plans are set to create around 40 new positions which would be fantastic for the local community, and we hope that as many people as possible are able to join us for this ‘virtual’ public consultation. We look forward to sharing and discussing our plans with everyone.”
The new supermarket forms part of the company’s £1.3bn investment plans across Great Britain in 2021 and 2022. Its ongoing success shows no signs of slowing, with the latest Kantar Worldpanel results highlighting Lidl’s increase in sales year on year and market share of 5.9%.
