In 1973, the first modern Lidl store opened in Ludwigshafen (25 miles south of Frankfurt). Employing 3 people and offering about 500 products, this small store was to become the foundation of Lidl’s far-reaching expansion. During the 1990s Lidl started branching outside of Germany and within a few years, Lidl expanded all across Europe.
Today, Lidl operate over 10,500 stores in 29 countries. Lidl have a history of cultivating relationships with local suppliers in each region to offer our customers high quality products at low prices. Lidl have recently expanded to the United States and are striving to be a time-saving, life-enhancing grocery store where you love to shop.
