Lidl to open new distribution centre in Leeds

Lidl UK has acquired a 38 acre site in Leeds for a new regional distribution centre.

The facility, which will be Lidl’s 17th distribution centre in the UK, will span around 60,000 square metres and could create as many as 500 new jobs once operational.

Ingo Fischer, the Lidl UK board director for expansion and development, said: “As we continue to open new stores and serve more customers across the country, it’s important that we also continue to build foundations for the future. This latest investment joins a long line of Lidl warehouses set to open over the next seven years, which are all vital in supporting our growth.”

The move forms part of Lidl £1.45 billion expansion programme in the UK and follows the opening of two new regional centres in Exeter and Wednesbury last year.

Lidl opened its first store in the UK in 1994 and now has over 720 stores nationwide.
