Lidl has opened the doors to its largest store in Scotland on Thursday on Edinburgh’s West Granton Road.
Originally opened in 1995, the West Granton Road store was Lidl’s original and first Edinburgh site which has now undergone a significant extension and refurbishment.
The new expansion, which saw the West Granton Road store take over the Iceland premises next door to it, has increased the sales area to 1438m² making it the retailer’s largest store in Scotland.
On Thursday Lidl GB’s regional head of property, Gordon Rafferty, said: “Today is a significant milestone for us here at Lidl.
"Opening the doors after an extension, to showcase our largest store in Scotland represents our commitment to continuing to invest and expand across the country.
During the first week of opening, customers will find exclusive deals and offers on selected products
“The store will bring even more great products and fantastic offers to Edinburgh residents as well as showcasing some of the incredible Scottish produce we stock throughout the year.”
During the first week of opening shoppers at the store will find exclusive deals and offers on selected products including a Vileda vacuum cleaning robot for £49.99, which is available on Saturday 10 October and a Toshiba 43” full HD smart TV for £129.00, available Saturday 10 October, and a Silvercrest stand mixer for £19.99, available Friday 9 October.
The new supermarket forms part of the company’s £1.45bn investment in its expansion across Great Britain in 2019 and 2020.
Lidl now has more than 100 stores in Scotland and opened a new Retail Distribution Centre in Motherwell in late 2019.
