Countdown to the opening of the new ‘Lidl of the Future’ store in Skegness has begun.

The £2million German discount store in Richmond Drive will open its doors at 8am, Thursday, December 17.

Its launch coincides with the supermarket announcing a new expansion investment of more than £1.5billion across the next three years.

The Skegness store will create 40 new full and part-time jobs.

Its state-of-the-art, glass-fronted design is the first of its kind to open in Great Britain.

It will have a sales area measuring 1,424m² on the ground floor, along with an enhanced 179m² welfare area for employees on the first floor.

Lidl UK’s board director of property and expansion, Ingo Fischer, commented: “We are extremely excited about our brand new concept store, which represents the future of Lidl UK.

“This is yet another milestone for us in providing the infrastructure needed to manage our increasing market share and the expectations of our growing and incredibly valued customer base who have, quite rightfully, come to expect the very 
best of us.”
