Lidl’s modern makeover is underway in Driffield

Supermarket chain Lidl has closed its Mill Street store for an estimated two months, with plans to reopen this autumn.

The closure is to allow the completion of extension works which began earlier this year, with scaffolding in place around the building for several months.

As of 8pm on Saturday 20th August, Lidls doors shut and the work began.

Lidl described the maintenance as ‘modernising its existing supermarket’ and claim it will better the overall customer experience.

As part of the works, the store will undergo an extension to increase the sales area to provide customer toilets and enhance the overall experience in-store through a new entrance way.

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

Customers will now have to travel to Hilderthorpe Road in Bridlington to shop in Lidl, 12.4 miles from the Driffield store.

A store on Eastfield Road in Beverley is 14.3 miles away.

Lidl’s Driffield staff will be reassigned to nearby stores until work is complete.

A spokesperson for Lidl GB’s told the Wolds Weekly: “We’re pleased to be able to extend our Driffield store so that we may bring the local community an even greater range of our much-loved produce, as well as deliver an enhanced shopping experience in-store.

“We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding whilst we undertake these works.”

The refurbishment forms part of the company’s ongoing £1.3bn investment across the country in 2021 and 2022.
