Lidl Re-Opens Andover StoreAs part of its UK-wide expansion programme supermarket Lidl, recently named Grocer Gold “Grocer of the Year”, has reopened its store on Western Way, Andover following an extension and refurbishment. Store staff were on hand to welcome customers, old and new, to the store on Thursday, 11th June, 2015 at 8am.

For the first week (11th June – 17th June) customers will enjoy special opening offers on fruit and veg, with many lines being reduced by 50%. Oaklands British Spinach will be reduced from 99p to 49p (250g), Oaklands British Cauliflower will be reduced from 89p to 44p (each) and Oaklands Granny Smith Apples will be reduced from £1.79 to 89p (1kg).

As well as special weekly deals, the new store will host many of Lidl’s quality product offerings, all at the lowest prices, including Lidl’s premium Deluxe range, winner of “Own Brand Range of the Year” at the Oracle Retail Week Awards 2014. Customers will be able to purchase everyday household products, as well as more luxury items – the complete weekly shop.

The sales area at the new store has increased to 1480m², has 7 tills and 90 car parking spaces. Award-winning chillers and a business management system that optimises store temperature, lighting and minimise energy consumption have been installed, as well as customer toilets. Lidl’s popular bakery area is a key feature of the store and will provide customers with freshly baked bread, rolls and pastries all day long.

A Lidl spokesperson said, “We are extremely proud to be investing back into the community with the re-opening of our Andover store. We’ve had a great relationship with local residents and we’re really pleased to open our doors and to once again offer our customers fresh, quality produce that is delivered to stores every day.
