Today we’re proud to announce our £500 million expansion plan for London.
Our investment is planned for the next 5 years and includes opening over 40 new outlets across Greater London, creating around 1,500 jobs. We’ll also be opening our brand new, custom-built head office in Tolworth and our most central London store to date, on Tottenham Court Road.
We’d like to thank our colleagues across the business for making everything we do possible.

Following a successful trial last year, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be rolling out new ‘Fun Size Trolleys’ for kids across our UK stores.
This is part of our commitment to engaging children in the food shop and healthy eating. The trolleys are named after our Oaklands Fun Size range – miniature versions of ordinary fruit and vegetable varieties – which were designed as a creative way for parents to encourage their children to eat five a day. The range launched in 2016 and we currently have over 14 products, including ‘Avodillo’s (baby avocados), Broccoli Trees and Unicorn carrots.
We understand it’s the Lidl things that can make a big difference! With tons of exciting new projects on the go for 2019 and beyond, there’s never been a better time to join Lidl GB. Find out where you could make your mark on the business today: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMA4U

In the lead up to the opening of our brand-new Doncaster Distribution Centre, our regional team organised a family & friends open day. Colleagues invited their nearest and dearest into the warehouse for a tour, food and drinks, face painting and games – including an 80 ft obstacle course and bouncy castle! A raffle and cake sale also raised over £360 for our national charity partner, the NSPCC.
Over 500 people attended the day and it’s fair to say that it was a resounding success. We’d like to thank the Doncaster team for all their hard work in setting up the warehouse, and wish them the very best, now operations have begun!
