A Lidl Bit of History

Dating back to 1930’s Germany, a small, independent grocery wholesaler was born. Fast track to today and we’re one of the largest grocery retailers in Europe. The first Lidl stores were opened in 1973, and by the 1980s Lidl was a household name in Germany. During the 1990s we started branching outside of Germany and today we can be found all across Europe. In fact, our extensive network of stores is unrivalled in the discount sector.

In 1994 we opened our first Lidl in the UK, just two decades later we have over 600 stores thanks to the dedication of our people, and a simple vision that inspires us all: high quality at low prices.
