Lidl GB has confirmed that after a short closure, its supermarket on Horn Cross Road in Plymstock will reopen and reveal its brand-new modernisation for the first time on 25th February 2021.
The store opening times will be between 8am - 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am – 4pm on Sunday, delivering Lidl’s offering of fresh, quality and great value produce to the local community. The supermarket forms part of the company’s ongoing £1.3bn expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain.
The store, which originally opened in 2001, has undergone a two-week closure to allow for a complete internal and external refurbishment. Inside, energy efficient LED lighting has been installed throughout and the bakery, colleague welfare areas and flooring, have all received updates. Customers will also now benefit from a re-laid car park, updated store front and improved fences along the boundary.
Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Matthias Daly, commented: “It is fantastic that we have been able to improve the offering of our Plymstock store for the local community during this time and we would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding whilst we have carried out these improvement works. We are delighted to be able to reveal this new and improved store to the local community and deliver an even greater shopping experience for residents.”

These include clear communication across the store, including floor markings, reminding customers of the importance of maintaining a two-metre distance from each other when shopping, along with regular tannoy announcements. Dedicated cleaning stations are also in place at store entrances, including hand sanitiser, disinfectant and wipes, for customer to use on their trolleys and baskets.
Additionally, the supermarket has installed protective screens at checkouts and masks have been made available for colleagues to wear in accordance with government guidance, and is continuing to encourage customers to pay by contactless payment methods where possible
