Lidl Northern Ireland today opened the doors of its brand new store in Dundonald, creating 16 new jobs, and marking its 39th store in the region.

The freshly refurbished store was officially opened by Lidl Sport for Good ambassador and MMA gold medalist and jiu jitsu champion, Leah McCourt, who cut the ribbon and welcomed hundreds of customers to the new store.

The Dundonald store incorporates a total sales floor of almost 1,300 square metres inside a 1,550 square metre building which has been transformed to include additional parking, higher ceilings, a more spacious interior layout, an enlarged bakery area and a Lidl To Go coffee machine.

The new store format, which is part of a wider plan to dramatically enhance its service provision across Northern Ireland, forms part of a multi-million-pound investment programme to expand its presence in the region.

Located adjacent to Translink’s Glider hub at 2, Dunlady Road in Dundonald, the store uniquely benefits from immediate access to Glider’s cross-city service at Dundonald Park and Ride, offering customers from across the city a reliable, relaxing and affordable transport option for visiting the new store.
