One thousand new jobs are set to be created after supermarket chain Lidl announced plans for a new distribution warehouse in Luton.
The five-acre site will be the company’s largest in the UK, at double the size of any other in the country. It comes just months after news they would also be creating a similar site in Peterborough, creating 500 jobs.
It is part of what they call a “£1.45 billion expansion investment” aimed at adding to 690 Lidl stores already countrywide.
The German grocery chain first opened its doors in the UK in 1994. This site is specifically aimed at allowing more growth in London.
