A new Lidl for

Bromborough

About Lidl

Big on quality, Lidl on price

 

Everyone knows we’re Lidl on price. So, it’s time to tell you what we’re Big on.

 

We’re Big on Quality. Big on the big shop. Big on all the things that matter. Big on the things that make cupboards and bellies and life feel fuller. Big on detergent that gets your socks white and cheese that knocks them off. Big on carrots that crunch and chillies with bite. Big on cuisine from far and wide, and meat from local farmers. Big on brands and biscuits and baby stuff and bicycle pumps and butter. We’re Big on everything.

 

Except of course, on price, because that’s where we’ll always be Lidl.

Lidl's operation

 

Lidl first opened its doors in Great Britain in 1994 and currently has over 24,500 employees, 800 stores and 13 distribution centres in England, Scotland and Wales. Lidl takes pride in providing top quality products at the lowest prices.

The Lidl retail philosophy is focused on simplicity and maximum efficiency at every stage of the business, from supplier to customer, enabling the company to sell high quality own brand products at the lowest prices

Red Tractor

Lidl is committed to sourcing high quality fresh meat, poultry, fruit and veg from British farms. We work closely with Red Tractor to ensure that our British meat, poultry, fruit and veg is responsibly sourced to strict food hygiene, animal welfare and environmental standards, with every pack traceable to the farm of origin. This guarantees our customers a fresh, locally sourced, high quality range of meat and poultry at excellent value.

Fairtrade

Lidl GB sells over 50 different Fairtrade certified products, from bananas originating from Colombia, tea picked in Kenya and cocoa for our chocolate, grown in Cote d’Ivoire. In addition to the products we sell all year round, we proudly support specific Fairtrade campaigns such as Fairtrade Fortnight. This is an opportunity to give a voice to farmers and growers throughout the world.

Working for Lidl

 

  • The new store is expected to create up to 40 new full and part-time jobs for local people. This is in addition to the temporary jobs created during construction of the store
  • Lidl recently increased the wages of all hourly-paid staff, ensuring that employees remain amongst the best paid in the industry. This means that the entry-level hourly pay increased to £9.30 per hour, above the Government Living Wage. Lidl does not operate zero hour contracts

Middle of Lidl

 

The new Bromborough store would feature our famous ‘Middle of Lidl’ products. Our ever-changing middle aisle offers customers the opportunity to purchase non-food household items at bargain prices. Click here to see this week’s offers.

sustainability

 

The proposed store will meet Lidl’s high sustainability standards which are intended to minimise environmental impact over the lifetime of the store.

 

  • Our delivery vehicles are used to remove waste from the store on their return journey to the nearest Regional Distribution Centre, where the waste/recyclable material is sorted and managed centrally. This also helps to reduce vehicle trips and CO2 emissions
  • Lidl lead the sector in terms of recycling and waste to landfill reduction by recycling all paper/cardboard and plastic waste produced by their stores
  • Store heating and lighting are controlled by a computerised Building Management System (BMS). This minimises energy consumption by adapting to external temperatures and lighting levels
  • The chilled food cabinets incorporate night blinds which trap the chilled air and reduce overnight energy consumption
  • Lidl refrigeration plant has low carbon emissions ratings and operates without the need for chlorofluorocarbons
  • Lidl stores use a manual dock leveller for deliveries, which reduces noise emissions and energy use
  • All lighting in the warehouse and staff welfare areas is controlled with motion sensors ensuring that electricity consumption is minimised
  • When the building is occupied by staff only (with no customers) the lighting system is powered down to only use one out of every three fluorescent tubes
  • Water consumption is carefully monitored and flow control devices and water meters are fitted in all stores
  • The car park lighting is switched off overnight and is controlled by a Lux sensor during trading hours
  • The Bromborough store will have two Electric Vehicle charging points.

Lidl has committed to being:

 

Good for Producers – including championing the British food and farming sector, focusing on our supplier relationships, human rights and ethical trade, and animal welfare

Good for People – including healthy eating, supporting charities such as the NSPCC and by becoming the employer of choice in our sector

Good for our Planet – by promoting a low carbon economy, minimising food waste, ensuring our supply chains are deforestation free and by reducing, recycling and re-using plastics and packaging
