New Lidl supermarket in Wrexham to open this month
A new supermarket in Wrexham town centre will open its doors to the public for the first time next month.
Lidl GB has confirmed its new store on Bodhyfryd/Powell Road, Wrexham, will open on Thursday 29th July. It will be open between 8am – 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am – 4pm on Sunday.
Plans for the new supermarket on the former police station site were given the go ahead by councillors last year.
As part of the company’s ongoing £1.3bn expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain for 2021 and 2022, the new store will accompany the existing one on Salop Road, Wrexham.
Lidl say the supermarket will create around 40 new jobs for the local community and will feature facilities including a 1,256m2 sales area, an in-store bakery, customer toilets and ample parking for both cars and bicycles.
The new store will also be providing surplus produce and customer donations to local charities, including Wrexham Foodbank and Rock Chapel, who distribute the surplus food to some of the most vulnerable in the local community. This is delivered through Lidl’s Feed it Back scheme, which is run in partnership with Neighbourly and connects Lidl stores up and down the country with local charities, foodbanks, community cafes and kitchens, putting quality food surplus to good use every day.
Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Stuart Jardine, commented: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Wrexham. It is fantastic that we are able to open our second store in the area which will enable even more of the local community to access to our multi-award winning products.
” We are delighted to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area and look forward to welcoming everyone to our new store.”
As per government guidance, the wearing of face coverings in supermarkets is still mandatory across Wales. Lidl is operating a range of social distancing measures to help maintain a safe environment for both colleagues and customers.
Other measures that continue to be in place include dedicated cleaning stations at entrances, hand sanitiser, disinfectant spray and wipes for customers to use on their trolleys and baskets, protective screens at checkouts, as well as visors and face coverings are available for colleagues to wear. In addition, customers are encouraged to pay by contactless payment where possible.
