The company also announced plans for its fourth distribution center and regional headquarters, in Cartersville, Ga., about 40 miles northwest of Atlanta. Previous centers were announced for Alamance County, in North Carolina; Cecil County, in Maryland; and Virginia’s Spotsylvania County.
Lidl in June opened the doors to its first U.S. stores, at locations in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Lidl expects to have 20 stores operating in the three states by summer’s end and as many as 100 stores up and down the East Coast within a year.
“We are excited to announce that we will be bringing the Lidl experience to even more communities in Virginia and North Carolina,” Brendan Proctor, president and chief executive officer of Lidl U.S., said in last month’s statement.
Each of the Lidl stores opening this summer is newly built and encompasses about 20,000 square feet.
