A DISCOUNT supermarket chain has confirmed that it is looking for a site in Cheadle. Lidl is currently looking at continuing its “phenomenal growth” by opening new stores across the country. In a 'Site Requirements' brochure which has been produced by Lidl this autumn, it sets out the areas that the company are looking at gaining sites, including in Cheadle, as well as other areas in Staffordshire.
They are looking for: “prominent locations with easy access and strong pedestrian or traffic flow” and also for “freehold, leasehold or long leasehold opportunities”, with the unit sizes flexible on design and scale between 14,000 and 26,500 square feet and 1.5 acres plus for standalone stores or up to four acres for mixed-use schemes.
A spokesman for Lidl told the Times & Echo: “As part of ongoing national expansion plans, our dedicated property teams are working hard to identify suitable locations across England, Scotland and Wales.
“This is for both new stores where there is demand for a Lidl, and existing stores that we would like to remodel for customers, which may require a relocation to do so.
“We would encourage any landowners or agents who may be aware of suitable sites, to get in touch with our property teams to discuss.”
