LIDL in Hereford is reopening this morning (Thursday) after a major refurbishment which has taken nearly five months.

The budget supermarket in Brook Retail Park, off Hereford's Commercial Road, has been extended and refurbished, reopening at 8am on Thursday.

The opening times of the revamped shop will be between 8am until 10pm Mondays to Saturdays, and 10am until 4pm on Sundays.


The work, which started in May, has been part of the company’s £1.3bn investment in its expansion across Great Britain in 2020 and 2021.

The sales area has been expanded to 1,104m2 as the supermarket expanded into the neighbouring unit, formerly Blockbuster.

The supermarket also has new facilities, such as a customer toilet, an improved fresh offering and a larger bakery section, Lidl said.

Lidl GB’s regional head of property Paul Hebblethwaite said: “We would like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding whilst we have carried out these improvement works at our store in Hereford.

"We are delighted to be able to open the store once again to residents and deliver an even greater range of our fresh, high quality and affordable produce as well as an enhanced shopping experience.”

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 Lidl's hops in England.

Across all of shops, dedicated cleaning stations at entrances, hand sanitiser, and protective screens at checkouts will also remain in place.
