Supermarket News Overview of LIDL Site Selection

As part of an effort to acquire sites for its U.S. store expansion, Lidl has launched a new website detailing its preferred site criteria, and guidelines for potential suppliers.

The site confirms that the retailer is seeking to build stand-alone stores of 36,000 square feet in dense population markets in eight East Coast states between New Jersey and Georgia.

As reported previously in SN, Lidl US, a division of German retailer Schwarz Group, is seeking to open sites in the U.S. no later than 2018. The company has not confirmed a number of planned sites although sources have speculated the company could be seeking as many as 100 in its initial rollout.
