Lidl’s new Glasgow store in Robroyston officially opened its doors this morning (Thursday 14 January).
The store is Lidl’s 105th in Scotland and, with a sales area of 15,424sq ft, its largest in Glasgow.
Creating up to 40 new jobs for the local community, it features an in-store bakery, customer toilets and ample parking.
Scotland’s national chef and Robroyston resident Gary Maclean got a sneak peek of the store before it opened. He commented: “The new store has a fantastic range of quality fresh fruit & veg, and a brilliant meat and dairy selection from Scottish farmers, which is a must for our household.”
Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property Gordon Rafferty said: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Robroyston. It is great for us to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area, and we can’t wait to start serving our multi-award winning products to the local community.”
As part of Lidl’s Feed It Back initiative, in partnership with Neighbourly, the new store will provide surplus food and customer donations to local charities Glasgow Community Food Initiative (GESH), who deliver meal services to vulnerable members, and North Glasgow Community Food Initiative for their community food hubs.
