Lidl is now planning to build a new supermarket on the site of a dropped controversial housing scheme in Alvaston that triggered hundreds of objections .
“We are delighted to get this deal over the line and I am proud to say that it has been something of a coup to land such a big name. “I am sure that Lidl will be as popular with the people of Alvaston as it is across its other stores in Derby and beyond. said Steve Salloway, managing director of Salloway Property Consultantsd, And he added : “This is a great solution for a brownfield site which has long been vacant.”.
In June, Lidl announced it was opening 40 new stores, creating 1,500 jobs in the process as part of a £500 million expansion plan over five years.
