A Lidl bit of disruption as store to close for six weeks

Driffield’s Lidl will close for up to six weeks this summer as part of plans to ‘modernise and extend’ the current store.

The supermarket on Mill Street has been subject to construction work for several weeks.

It has been reported that the closure will take place from mid-August, believed to be around Saturday 13th, for six weeks.

The Wolds Weekly can confirm that improvements to the store being made are to ‘enhance the overall experience’ for customers.

This will include customer toilets and a new entrance way, as well as alterations to its car park.

Part of the work is on land between Lidl’s current customer car park and Victoria Road, sparking speculation of a second vehicle entrance in addition to Westgate.

However, a spokesperson for Lidl denied this, telling the Wolds Weekly: “We are delighted to confirm plans to modernise and extend our existing Lidl store in Driffield.

“As part of the works, we will be increasing the sales area to provide customer toilets and enhance the overall experience instore through a new entrance way.

“The store’s car park will also be enhanced and will include a new rapid electric vehicle charger along with additional parent and child car parking spaces.

“The entry and exit point on Westgate will remain the only vehicle access to and from the car park.

“We would like to take the opportunity to thank the local community for their patience and understanding during this time.

“We look forward to sharing more details as and when we are in a position to confirm these.”
