Lidl set to open second store in Finsbury Park


Lidl GB has confirmed that its new supermarket on the ground floor of the Arts Building on Morris Place, Finsbury Park, will open for the first time on Thursday 29th July.

The store opening times will be between 7am – 11pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am – 4pm on Sunday, delivering Lidl’s offering of fresh, quality and great value produce.

During the first week of opening customers will be able to find exclusive deals and offers on selected products including a Dog Pool on Thursday 29th July (£19.99), a Tabletop Electric Wok on Friday 30th July (£12.99), and a Plunge Saw PTSS 1200 C1 on Saturday 31st July (£34.99).

Part of the company’s ongoing £1.3bn expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain for 2021 and 2022, the store will create up to 30 new jobs for the local community. It will feature a sales area of 917m² and will be significantly larger than the existing store in Finsbury Park, offering an even greater range of products to local residents.

The new store will be providing surplus produce to several local charities, including The Boiler House Community Space and Highbury Vale-Blackstock Trust, who support local families through the provision of a community food hub. Customer donations will also be distributed to Lifeafterhummus Community Benefit Society, who provide culturally representative food parcels to the local area. This is delivered through Lidl’s Feed it Back scheme, which is run in partnership with Neighbourly and connects Lidl stores up and down the country with local charities, foodbanks, community cafes and kitchens, putting quality food surplus to good use every day.

Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Mike Devine, commented: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Finsbury Park. It is fantastic that we are able to open our second store in the area which will enable even more of the local community to access to our multi-award winning products. We are delighted to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area and look forward to welcoming everyone to our new store.”

As per the latest government guidance, while no longer legally required, it is recommended that those who can, continue to wear face coverings in crowded or indoor spaces, including when visiting our stores in England. Across all of our stores, dedicated cleaning stations at entrances, hand sanitiser, and protective screens at checkouts will also remain in place.
