- It’s a grower: Lidl burst onto the supermarket scene here in the year 2000 when it opened its first store in Omagh. Since then the German retailer has added an additional 37 stores to its NI portfolio and it’s taking a bigger bite of the supermarket share here every month. New *research shows that three-quarters of Northern Ireland's population shopped at Lidl in the last year. It also provides employment to almost 900 people in NI.
- Lidl in the Middle: You never know what you will find in the middle aisle of Lidl. Waffle makers to construction tools, bargain school uniforms and supermodel-designed fashion always allows for a surprise purchase.
- Supporting the locals: As well as its own brand range Lidl is an avid supporter of local food and drink producers. Last year alone it sourced some £80m worth of food from local producers. What’s more is it delves into the community by supporting local groups. Right now it’s Lidl Community Works programme is committed to giving support and resources to local communities in Northern Ireland. Since the launch of that programme Lidl has engaged with over 750 community groups and has donated over well over hundreds of thousands of pounds to local Northern Irish community groups.
- That in-store bakery: In 2012 Lidl introduced in-store bakeries into its stores selling everything from crusty bread to scones and pastries. The maple and pecan plait and the cheese twist are two very special VIPs at the bread counter.
- The price: Lidl’s prices are the cheapest among all big four supermarkets here making a full trolley shop a fraction of the cost.
- Star perfomance: Lower price never means lower quality at Lidl. Its product range is regularly awarded at esteemed foodie and drink events. It won Wotwine Supermarket Retailer of the Year 2019 and among its other gongs are Great Taste Awards, a Good Housekeeping Institute Taste Approved Award, and a Mother and Baby Gold Award.
- It’s Environmentally Conscious: From responsible sourcing - (its bananas, cocoa and palm oil are all certified and it’s on track to certify sources for a number of other foods) to positive energy management, Lidl has always exercised good social responsibility. Its new concept stores were built with that in mind and have received high standard energy management certificates. It is also committed to reducing plastic and has big plans to convert 100% its own-brand packaging into recyclable packaging by 2025.
- It’s a giver: Always about giving a Lidl bit of love, Lidl is offering three readers the chance to win a £200 voucher, one case of Prosecco, a BBQ and all the grub you could need to be the host with the most when the sun shines.
