Construction starts on Garston Lidl

Julia Hatmaker

Liverpool-based Braithwaite Fit Out is the main contractor for the project, which will set up shop on St Mary’s Road.

The supermarket will replace both an old Co-op and the vacant unit that was next to it. When finished, the 13,500 sq ft store is expected to create 40 jobs.

Those looking to park their car at the Lidl will be able to choose from 87 different spaces. Of those 87, two of the spaces will be rapid electric vehicle charging points.

The South Liverpool Lidl will also have an in-store bakery and customer toilets.

Construction on the project began on 2 August. It’s the latest in Lidl’s expansion in Great Britain. The supermarket company said it was committed to a £1.3bn investment across the country through 2022. That includes both the Garston location and the recently approved Mocha Parade Lidl.

Lidl is one of the largest grocery store chains in the country, with more than 25,000 employees working at more than 860 stores and 13 distribution centres in Great Britain.
