LIDL GB has today revealed plans to create up to 220 new jobs in Scotland over the next 12 months, through four new store openings, and investment in its existing portfolio. 

The company said it is “committed to fulfilling its ambitious store opening programme, despite disruption amid the coronavirus pandemic”. 

Lidl plans to expand its portfolio across the country will add to the current estate of 103 Scottish sites with new stores in Rosyth, as well Glasgow Finnieston and Robroyston.

Meanwhile, Lidl has pledged to optimise existing stores including Kirkwall, Kelso and Kilsyth. 

The retailer also recently revealed a list of 28 ‘sites of interest’ across the country.

Ross Millar, Lidl’s regional director for Scotland, said:“At the beginning of 2020 we opened our 100th store in Scotland.

“To be able to continue that growth across the country is an exciting prospect and reinforces our commitment to creating new jobs and providing Scottish communities with quality produce at Lidl value prices.”
