DROITWICH’S new Lidl supermarket was officially opened at 8am, this morning by Town Mayor Coun Christine Bowden who performed a ribbon-cutting.
The opening of the store, which is bringing 40 jobs to the town, was announced by Droitwich Town Crier Edgar Harwood and local children were there at the event.
After the ribbon-cutting, Coun Bowden and others were given a tour of the new shop.
She said: “It went really well – there were quite a few people there.
“I think the new Lidl will be an asset to Droitwich – both because of the number of jobs it has brought to the town and it is another shop, adding more variety.
The new supermarket forms part of the company’s ongoing expansion and regeneration plans and features an in-store bakery, parking for cars and bikes, customer toilets and baby changing.
Lidl GB’s regional head of property Jeremy Lee said: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Droitwich.
“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.”
