Budget supermarket Lidl is to create 500 jobs after unveiling plans to open a new warehouse in Bolton.

The German chain has acquired the freehold for 43.71 acres at the town's Logistics North scheme for £22.5 million and plans to pump millions more into developing it.

The warehouse will be its 14th in the country.

Once again, we are delighted to reveal plans for another Lidl distribution centre in Great Britain, bringing investment to Bolton, new jobs and additional support to our existing and future stores in the north of England.

We will be working closely with the council to develop our plans for the site and a planning application is likely to be forthcoming later in the year.
