Lidl Won’t Discount Brexit Britain

German supermarket giant Lidl is massively expanding its UK operations after being granted planning permission for a new state-of-the-art 240,000 sq foot headquarters in Tolworth, West London. The announced permission had been granted last Friday. The final hurdle before beginning construction is to secure a rubber stamp from Sadiq Khan in the New Year.

The retailer also plans to plough millions into projects outside the South East: earlier this month it said it would develop a £70 million distribution centre in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Both developments are expected to generate hundreds of jobs.

Trade mag Construction Enquirer reports this morning:

“Lidl plans to invest £1.5 bn over three years on expanding its store and logistics network to 1,500 stores despite Brexit. It currently trades from 640.”

A huge sign of confidence in Brexit Britain from an iconic German firm…
