Part of major UK expansion

Fast growing German-owned Lidl has announced plans to open hundreds of new stores across the country including seven in Wiltshire and Swindon.

The expansion is expected to create thousands of jobs in a year following significant investment in the supermarket’s infrastructure.

In the Wiltshire area new jobs could approach 100.

Richard Taylor, Lidl GB Chief Development Officer, commented: “We’re planning to open hundreds of new Lidl stores but ultimately see no ceiling on our ambition or growth potential.
