By now you have probably heard that Lexington is getting a new grocery store! There are lots of grocery stores, but this store is said to be different. It is not only easily recognizable by its semi-arch shape, but it is also said to have been causing a movement of sorts in towns and cities all across North Carolina where it is popping up. The store even coined a term for the impact it is having. It says it is causing, “the Lidl effect” and it is something Lexington families should be very excited about.
The Lidl effect is the idea that the store is driving down prices at surrounding stores. According to Business Insider, Lidl has some of the best prices around. Like some of the other discount stores, you need to bring your own bags; however, you do not need a quarter to rent a cart like you do at Aldi. Another tip: Lidl stores do not accept Manufacturer's Coupons, but they do offer store coupons on the Lidl app.
There is more to the store than just its low prices. The store offers fresh baked goods from its bakery that greets guests from the entrance. Lidl also provides its customers with an array of healthy and sustainable items, plus it features some top quality products that have won acclaim, such as its award winning cheeses and wines. In addition to all of that, you can expect to see an aisle of ever changing non-food items, such as toys, furniture, fitness gear, and more. The Director of Business and Community Development in Lexington, Tammy Absher, says the opening of Lidl is only the beginning. "Lidl's investment in our community is a testament to the positive growth that Lexington is experiencing. With the new Lidl and Chick-fil-A , other national retailers are expected to follow."
Lexington’s Lidl is set to hold its Grand Opening on Thursday, October 19th. The store will open at 8:00 a.m. following a ribbon cutting ceremony at 7:40 a.m. This store is located at 1265 Fairview Road. It is the fourteenth location in North Carolina. There are many reasons to come and check this store out. There will be special deals, giveaways, prizes, activities and more.

Shoppers can also sample Lidl’s products and get a complimentary Lidl reusable bag while supplies last. Lidl is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday – Sunday. For more information, visit www.lidl.com.
