A major supermarket chain has announced plans to open a new store in Beccles.
Lidl UK will be holding a public consultation day to outline its plans for a new store on Common Lane North.
The proposed multi-million pound investment will see Lidl commit to building a sustainable store with plans to create up to 40 new jobs. The supermarket will boast state of the art facilities including an in-store bakery, longer-style tills with dual packing facilities, customer toilets and parking for cars and bicycles.
Lidl UK’s regional head of property, Colin Rimmer, said: “We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a Lidl in Beccles and serving our fresh, quality and incredibly good value produce which shoppers across the country have come to love. We look forward to welcoming anyone along to the public consultation day and showcasing our plans whilst answering any questions.”
The consultation event will be held at The Waveney House Hotel on November 1 between 2.30pm and 6.30pm, and members of the public are invited along to ask questions and comment on the plans.
