Construction of Lidl’s new £70m Regional Distribution Centre has now commenced at iPort.
Lidl is working with construction firm Winvic Construction Ltd to build the RDC, which will create up to 500 new jobs when opened. The build is expected to be completed by spring 2019.
Lidl has also announced the acquisition of a new store in the Doncaster area. The store will be built in Rossington, at the planned 1,200 home Torne Park development on Heatherfields Crescent. The store will be the sixth Lidl to open in Doncaster with sites already at Balby, Bentley, Sandall Park, Mexborough and Thorne.
Lidl UK’s Regional Head of Property, Graham Burr commented: “We are delighted to be opening a new store in Rossington, which marks another milestone in our ambitious store expansion programme. We’ve seen incredible demand for Lidl stores across the country and look forward to offering our quality products and incredible value to shoppers in and around Doncaster.”
