Staff Report

Lidl US announced plans to open 50 new stores by the end of 2021, including a North Charleston location.

Other stores will be located in Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The new locations will bring Lidl’s total number of stores to more than 150.

Lidl said it will invest more than $500 million in the new stores and will create about 2,000 jobs across the communities.  Lidl offers a wages and benefits package that includes healthcare insurance for all full and part-time employees. 

A new study from UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School observed Lidl’s pricing to be up to 45 percent lower than nearby national grocers.

This month, the National Retail Federation ranked Lidl as the top retailer in its Hot 100 Retailers list of fastest-growing companies. Lidl opened its third regional headquarters and distribution center in Cecil County, Maryland, earlier this year to support its store network. It plans to open its fourth distribution center in Covington, Georgia over the next two years.

Lidl also said it will close two stores in Havelock and Shelby, North Carolina. All employees there will be given the opportunity to relocate to another store within Lidl’s growing store network, company officials said.

Below is a list of 50 new stores that will open along the East Coast by the end of 2021. The grand opening dates of the individual stores will be announced over the coming months, the officials said.
