THE new Lidl store opens its doors in Pickering tomorrow (Thursday) at 8am.

Special promotions, including sampling of food from the in-store bakery, will be held to celebrate the opening.

Pickering will be a new generation Lidl food store and home to many existing popular lines, as well as the bakery.

The Pickering store, which has created 16 full and part-time jobs, forms an integral part of Lidl UK’s expansion plans.

Lidl spokeswoman Clare Norman said: “ We’re particularly excited about the new store in Pickering, and being able to serve the local residents with our fresh, quality produce delivered to stores every day”.
